I already had a similar valve spring compressor to that supercheap one, the last time I tried it I couldn't get the lever to compress so gave up thinking it was the wrong type, so today I used a 300mm pipe on the end of it for some leverage and it worked easily

Because the collets are wedge shaped, they jam in. Put a bit of tension on it then give the valve cap a hit with a soft faced hammer. You only need 3 hands.

Seems to work easier using a socket over the valve spring retainer cap

I also made one many moons ago using a VC commodore front bumper iron.
