I think you mean a Schrader Valve, there is no "shredder" on the AC system.

I see tools to remove them and kits that include new valves so I can olny assume you need to apply a bit more Omph to the tool to remove the old one.

But since the system is pressurized that pressure will be locking the threads, and unscrewing it before releasing the pressure will cause it and possibly the tool to become missiles driven by that compressed gas

That could be dangerous, Deadly even.

Just my .02
