Shive Tool

The shive tool is specifically designed to interact with a shive, facilitating its installation and removal from casks. Its geometric gear-shaped design ensures a snug fit with the shive, providing a firm grip and ease of use. Incorporating a square head, the tool is compatible with ratchets, offering additional leverage and control during the sealing process. This design ensures efficient handling and minimises the risk of damaging the shive or the cask.


For optimal results and to maintain the integrity of the casks, it’s recommended to use the shive tool when installing or removing the screw in shive. The precise design of the shive tool ensures that the shive is accurately positioned and securely fastened. Using other tools can result in improper fitting, which might lead to leaks or other sealing issues. Furthermore, incorrect tools can increase the risk of damaging both the shive and the cask, potentially affecting the quality of the brew inside. To guarantee the best outcome and longevity of your equipment, always opt for the shive tool designed specifically for the casks.

Additional Info

To ensure the longevity of both the shive and the cask, as well as to maintain the integrity of the seal, it’s crucial to use the recommended shive tool during installation.
