Reaches where your fingers won't.
Especially good for getting off a short stub of broken hose left on a nipple.

I used mine to get the water lines off and back on the bottom of the carbs when I had them out. I got a set of three different sizes at Harbor Freight for about $15. I think the sizes were 3/8, 1/2 and 3/4.
