It only needs to move the pin a few mm to pop it free from the frame.

As far as I can see, the 'guide' is pushed against the pin when you tighten the tool, which in turn pushes the pin through into the 'void' in the sleeve on the other side.

It should be very easy and low risk to make a less fancy tool to do the job:

- threaded rod to fit through pin
- nut/washers for each end of rod
- plastic sleeve with wider diameter than the pin
- hollow 'press' that is slightly smaller in diameter to the pin to push it through and not foul the frame doing so

Same principle as shock/fork bushing removal.

The original tool is very pretty though.
