Bafang Ultra Bottom Bracket Tool?

I've been told that I need the Bike Hand YC-29BB-2A or YC-29BB to remove the chainring spider/bottom bracket from the Bafang Ultra. This is for a 16 external notch, 44 mm diameter lock ring. Those tools all come from Asia, and take weeks/months to get to the US.

Does anyone know if the Park Tool BBT-69.2 Bottom Bracket Tool will work? I know the ring will fit properly due to specs, but the Bafang Ultra has this ring recessed quite a bit and the spined crankshaft sticks out quite a bit. The Bike Hand tools are deep enough that they'll fit over the crankshaft, but I'm not sure if the Park Tool version is deep enough.

Anyone know for sure?

Thanks! The Bike Hand is actually on Amazon for less money & free shipping. I would have preferred the Park Tool version as it's more compact, but I guess I'll pocket the $10 and be happy.

Nice, I wasn't sure if it was the same part. There is another one on ebay as well with the same part number but it didn't look like the same tool. No personal experience, I just remembered seeing that post on the luna forum.
