SRAM Cassette removal tool

Are SRAM and Shimano removal tools the same? I bought one today but it doesn’t seem to fit very well at all. I bought the Shimano one assuming it would fit my 11 speed SRAM cassette.

They should indeed be compatible.

Ok thanks. I’ll have another look at it. The tool would only fit into the cassette about quarter of an inch. There’s not a master spline or anything that I haven’t noticed?

Hmm. Mystery solved. They have given me a freewheel remover not a cassette tool. On the first visit they gave me a Campag one, despite me asking for Shimano. Moral of the story, always take your glasses and don’t trust what they give you in the shop.
