The concept on thee tools is to draw the boot over the crimped can. If this is possible the boot is then only held to the can with a clamp. The reason you have to disassemble the can is to get the axle out of the cv joint so the boot with a one inch hole can be slid right on the axle. These tools take the one inch hole and slide it over the 4 inch diameter cv joint. You damn sure won't do that with a MB boot. The boot they use must be made from bubble gum.

I see no reason why they shouldn't work I would worry about the quality of the boot. Getting axles out to redue the boots yearly could be a worse problem.
