Typically a tool you use to remove springs from automotive heads looks like a big c-clamp see pic. The type you are showing doesnt have a way to grip the head with the jaws shown unless it hooks one of the bottom coils of the spring. You want one like the second pic that mounts to the stud. I have never seen one like your pic.
