RMS install tool

I am at the point of installing a new RMS and want to get a proper tool rather than a piece of pipe from Home Depot or Lowes. What do folks use to install the PTFE seal?
Anybody in the Albany NY area have something I can borrow or hire?

You are talking about a $700 tool, good luck.

I would love that but there is no contact on their website and no real ecommerce setup either.... How did you manage to buy it in the end?

Its been a while but I did buy it thru the website. If you hit add to cart and go to the bottom of the page there is a checkout...at least there was when I tried it.

Good luck.

Or you can just borrow mine. Send me a PM if you want.
