Does what it says on the box! If you do a bunch of bearings or just want an easier way to fill them with grease than doing it by hand this tool is pretty handy (possibly why they even included that word in the name...). If you put pressure on the handle off-center you'll get a larger amount of grease coming up past the O-ring but not so much that it's an issue on our unit.

Recommended if you have need for one. You can grab one on eBay (eBay US, eBay CA, eBay UK, eBay AU or Amazon).
