If a Stronglight crank isn't on too tight, you can often get away with using a TA tool, but a lot of Stronglight cranks have also been ruined this way. I'm sure there are lots of people who have used the big end of a Park puller on Stronglight and never known it wasn't correct. Maybe it's a good thing that Park quit making those double-ended pullers.
