First make sure you are using appropriately, where your application requires a 7/8" fork opening. Be sure to lubricate the ball joint with something similar to PB Blaster and use a solid ball peen hammer to the control arm (as long as it is not aluminum) and apply pressure from this tool as (or if) needed.
This tool should last most a lifetime with no issues. It comes is a nice blow molded case, but it is only one piece so a case is really not needed to keep parts together. This tool comes with a limited lifetime warranty and the company is easy to deal with, family owned, and dedicated to customer service. This is based on my own personal experience and not something I have heard or read.
We tried a couple of the 10 to 20 dollar ones that are U-shaped with hooks on the end (Autozone and O-Reilly) and they could not budge the lower ball joint; the cheaper tools just bent. Using an IR air wrench that generates 1350 ft lbs of torgue we carefully and slowly put each U-shaped tool to the test. They both failed and bent, before they could pop the ball joint.
The lower ball joint on a Nissan truck is really large and really tough to get out, so we finally paid the bucks and got one that works.
The two stage system uses a large bolt to tighten up against the ball joint bolt/nut and a small bolt to apply the force to pop the ball joint. The small bolt used to pop the joint can by tightened by using a small 1/4 inch hand ratchet - no air wrench required.
For safety remember to leave the ball joint nut on the ball joint bolt when you use the tool; or the ball joint could go flying out and possibly hurt someone when it pops. The nut holds it in place so that it only moves a half inch or so.

When I needed to take the knuckles off of my 2001 accord with three ball joints per side to replace wheel bearings, I needed a different solution.
I was looking at the similar non-hydraulic OEM style ball joint separators when I found this tool.
Ordered it on a whim because it looks much tougher than other screw type ball joint separators and the hydraulic action seemed like a great feature to smooth out the intense amount of pressure it takes to pop out a ball joint.
I am so glad I bought this tool, It makes popping ball joints, one of the more difficult tasks of home car maintenance a complete breeze.
I greased all the threads, hinge and metal contact points before use. It disassembles easily.
Using the tool is intuitive. The hydraulic action is just as I expected, it takes very little effort of turning the smaller screw to get the ball joints to release.
I would estimate this tool saved me at least an hour, probably more when I replaced wheel bearings.
It will see much more use in the future, I no longer fret having to remove ball joints and think it will hold up a long time.
I'm only sad that I did not receive a hard case for the tool as mentioned in other reviews; no big deal, I still think this is a five star tool.
