Works the same way as a mechanic they served me well. Couldn't recommend this on bike grips you'll scratch the handle bars. On say a heater core at the fire wall you just can't use a pry bar. Same principle as the crescent and hammer. LOL..
I have used water lotion anything just pry it up with a thin screw driver work the lube in will slide right too. Even saw the air trick as well.
