Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great tool; instructions need improvement The toolsworks as advertised and gets the job done quickly. However, maybe I'm a little dense, but the instructions could be improved. I looked at the tool before use and thought "how could this plastic tip puncture a metal can?". I read the instructions again, and thought "hmmm, maybe this is some type of new high-tech composite?" So I try it, and all it does is dent the can. I had to read another comment here, that the plastic is just a _protector_ over the point that needs to be taken off before use, that I was able to get it to work. I read the instructions again, and it's not mentioned anywhere - I guess the designers thought it was obvious, but at least for me, it wasn't. So they lose one star for forgetting to mention it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it. It does what it's supposed to do, for [$]. It's light, small, easily drains the can before you puncture it. Great little compact tool for doing so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Slam-dunk recycling! Device screws onto canister and allows remaining gas to leak out, then the punch verified canister is not intact. My only downside? The plastic protector for the sharp punch end is poorly designed and can fall off easily--if that happens in your pack, you could "punch" a hole you didn't want!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from buyer beware, recycling the cans nearly impossible This little tool works great. But finding a place to recycle the punctured cans is nearly impossible! I live one hour outside of a large urban area and have called all the municipal recyclers - none of them will take the punctured cans because they held a fuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the $6 for ease of use Someone gave this two stars because they said it was a waste of money. The tool is only $6 and it much easier to use than a hammer and screwdriver so it's well worth it as an add-on to an online order or if you are in store and buying a canister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from super easy to use super easy to use, i didn't realize though that i could've saved the $5.95 and just used any sharp object like a screw driver. then again, it's still pretty cheap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier than expected Easier than expected. A little expensive for a simple tool that enables you to properly dispose of fuel canisters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job Does what it's supposed to, and helps make sure that the canister is empty before puncturing.

Some stoves have different size threading where the stove sits, can this be used on all types of canisters?

Asked by: BonzM
The Jetboil Crunchit Recycling Tool is compatible with any canister which has a threaded lindel valve.
