Im trying to remove a 5 speed durex (no sniggering at the back please) freewheel. Its two prong one and Im using the Park Tool FP2 but finding that its riding out.
Is this the right tool for the job or do I need something else to fit in the slots.






Innuendo bingo, you score points for prong, tool and slot but nothing for Durex :roll:

If thats FR2 then it is similar to the tool I used 60 years ago. How are you clamping it on the freewheel? Normally we used either a hub nut or Q/R skewer firmly tightened, the pressure helps to loosen the freewheel. As soon as the freewheel turns a few degrees loosen the nut or skewer a little, or you will break or strip something.
If you are already doing this, please explain further.

Thanks for the tip/reminder
