Lisle cylinder hone=great anger

So I fired this thing up on my drill. I watched some videos to see how it's done, and I am going, wrrrrrrrr.....and then I pull the thing out and it undoes itself and drops to the floor, stone breaks so naturally I threw that piece of !@#$ across my garage. Broke it like a champ. Minutes later I found out I can buy replacement stones separately. So I'm ordering another one from summit. MY QUESTION IS THIS: Why did it undo itself? Do I need to have my drill in reverse?
Also, I think Lisle makes some ok tools, but for the most part I've found A LOT of their tools to be trash. Anyone feel the same way?

If it is like my hone you stop the drill when the hone is in the cylinder, release the stone pressure then remove it.

Stop your drill before removing it from the cylinder. Use kerosene or something like Varsol instead of motor oil. You will get a much cleaner faster cut.

Lisle makes many different hones. If you were using the larger one with clip on stones. The hone is not made to free wheel outside of the cylinder. The micrometer feed thru the center of the unit holds the mounts and stones in place. If the stones and holders are not installed correctly, the thing will fly apart.

Back in the sixties. I started with one of these hones. Honed hundreds of blocks with it. Mounted with an old Thor 3/4" slow rpm drill to a fixture with a counterbalance spring, stroke limiter and a little giant pump that re circulated honing oil into a converted milking machine wash tub. I can still feel the shoulder muscles ache!!! and DO NOT hit a main web........
