    For [$] you get not one, but two , of these insanely useful wrenches. Not only are they useful for getting stubborn filters off the lens or each other, but also for installing them on lenses that can be a bit temperamental. I also like how they cause no visible damage to either the lens or filter.I keep these with my camera so I have them whenever I need them and they have already paid for themselves, several times over.

    ....These wrenches are made of flimsy, hard plastic, having minor ridges on the inside, which are *supposed to* help the wrench grip stuck filters. Unfortunately, if your filter actually is stuck on your lens, you'll have to squeeze pretty hard and apply a fair amount of torque, which warps the wrench and loosens the grip of it's *slick plastic*. IMHO, these are absolutely worthless. ......

        Comments about Sensei 48-58mm Filter Wrench (Set of 2):

        It can be very frustrating to get a filter stuck on your lens or two filters stuck together, especially polarizers. These filter wrenches are slim enough to grip even narrow filters & loosen the stuck filter.
        A tip. If the threads seem to be askew, a plastic credit card run around between the filter threads & lens threads may pop the threads back into position & enable the filter to be removed.

              These seem to work very well. Filter wrenches are one of those things you don't realize how much you need them until the time comes and you don't have them. Well made for the price.

                Comments about Sensei 48-58mm Filter Wrench (Set of 2):

                The product is somewhat flimsy, but it works when handled properly.

                Needs to be set exactly parallel to the filter edge (a flat cardboard infront of the lens helps alignment) and then a firm pressure at the grips, nearer to the filter, works best.
                Too much pressure will warp the wrench and it might break.

                Comments about Sensei 48-58mm Filter Wrench (Set of 2):

                I recently purchased several new lenses for my OMD E-M5 along with a complement of filters. Trying out one of the lenses photographing a small waterfall in the snow, I ended up with a circular polaroid filter locked tight to a variable density filter. With both having rotating rings, it was impossible to get purchase on the filters. These wrenches make quick and simple work of the job. I just wish I'd bought them at the same time as the lenses and filters. My only complaint is that they take a fair bit of space in my bag, but a small penalty for saving a future outing.

                      Of course, we all say, "Never stack filters," but how many of us have never put a polarizer on top of a red or yellow filter? I learned the hard way that they can seize up so tightly you'd think they were welded, and there isn't much on a filter to grab onto. These wrenches are strong, thin, and will grip the filters solidly, allowing you to separate them without smudging.

                              Wrenches worked fine for a 55mm Hoya filter.

                              One wrench would have been enough. Little need for a second, identical wrench (comes as a set of 2). However, the price was good, so I didn't mind the second wrench.

                                  A great tool to have. I never thought that I would need a filter wrench, until one of my filters was on too tight. A very simple, but a effective tool to own. Very simple and easy to use.

                                  Had a filter that would not come off,
                                  this did the trick. Sits in my gear bag.

                                    ....These wrenches are made of flimsy, hard plastic, having minor ridges on the inside, which are *supposed to* help the wrench grip stuck filters. Unfortunately, if your filter actually is stuck on your lens, you'll have to squeeze pretty hard and apply a fair amount of torque, which warps the wrench and loosens the grip of it's *slick plastic*. IMHO, these are absolutely worthless. ......

                                        When stacking filtes ND etc especially the slim-line filters it often is difficult to seperate the fiters. @ wrenches make it a breeze to take them apart. Could not do it without them.

                                          An essential item for changing lens filters.
                                          Fits nicely in a camera bag taking out virtually no room.

                                              This helped me separate two filters that were stuck for a few weeks. They also enable smoother manual focusing of the lense during video recording with my DSLR.

                                                I was able to safely and quickly remove a polarizing filter from a UV filter with minimal effort. The filters were permanently stuck together and I seriously considered simply buying new filters to replace these. The polarizing filter had a separate swivel which maded it more difficult to get a grip on. The filter wrench was an excellent buy.
