Centerlock QR15 lockring tool?

7849 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  IRONMAN1518
I have a new front wheel that had the QR15 axle and centerlock rotors. The problem is that my standard Park lock ring tool was made to work with standard 9mm QR axles and does not fit the QR15. Where can I find the special tool that I need to tighten the centerlock lock rings on the QR15 front hub?

i believe that it uses the same tool as external bearing bottom brackets.

Did you ever get this worked out? I am having the same issue. Using a DT 240S centerlock QR15 front hub with an XTR 160 mm centerlock rotor. My Park tool won't fit over the axle.
why cant you take the axle out and use the tool?
I did figure it out...but forgot to post a reply. It requires a special lock ring (picture attached) that uses a standard external bottom bracket tool to tighten.

Go to the following link and order the "XT-M778/776 CL Lockring & Washer" (item # 212-72743):

To tighten it you will need an external bottom bracket tool similar to the Park BBT-9

Hope this helps!

Hate to partially dissagree.But I ran into the same problem, I think. You can't fit the centerlock tool cause there isn't enough clearance between the axle and the centerlock, to slide into the centerlock splines, right? I figured I needed the above mentioned external splined lockring. Went to www.tech-mavic.com, sign in= mavic-com; PW= dealer. it shows the pictures where the center ring on the end of the axle is a separate piece that slides onto the axle end. Pull it off and "Poof" you are there!1 Too simple!! But it made me crazy!! Didn't have to buy a thing!!
See the thread @ I enclosed some pics of my own hub and the problem/solution. Hope this helps!
