yep thats the one

since the removel tool doesnt have a little metal thing that sticks out and go's into were the quick release does (ither does mine) try this little tip as sometimes you may find the cassette removel tool will jump out

assuming you have quick release wheels, put the tool into the cassette then atatch the quick release skuir like your attaching the wheel to your frame, it may be a tight fit tho Wink
