Because the tines of the fork can catch the boot while my tool slips over the nozzle itself and is then slid across beneath the ridge, capturing the boot. Once my tool is on the nozzle you can't drop it, while fumbling with the open tool and heavy gloves invites dropping it.
I tried the open tool, which is why I looked for a better solution.
Mine is also cheaper, the Aerostich sold tool is $8.00, plus shipping.
