You need 2 of them. Figured that out after buying one from amazon this week. Got mine off today.

If you leave the axle pinch bolts tight on one side all you need is one Allen wrench on the loose side.

Or cut 1" off your Allen wrench and use that piece to hold the other side with a 12mm socket or wrench just in case your axle is stubborn and the pinched side can't hold it.
