Made my life alot easier. Wish I knew about this earlier. Good product for u if u a car guy
Have not used it yet, but the dimensions and fit for the calipers on my 2002 Vette look almost perfect.
So easy to use! Works great on the brake job on my 2016 Ram 1500. No more C clamps needed! Love it! Worth ever Penny!
Received the item quickly and it looks well built and exactly what I need to help replace worn pads in my old truck. It will be much easier than trying to use my channel lock pliers !!
Does the job for a fraction of the price of the tool truck ones. I like the larger plates it comes with for dual piston calipers. Been using it daily for 2 months now and so far it's holding up great.
You can use a c-clamp, or other type of piston depression tool, but why? This is something that every person must have. It is easy to use and works perfectly. You can screw one side of the tool in or out in order to adjust to distance between the piston and opposite side of the caliper, and then start ratcheting. Takes a few seconds to depress the piston. I wish I had this years ago.....
These pad spreaders work like a charm, no more C-clamp shenanigans. My only issue is that you need good pressure to get the ratchet to work, and the ratchet direction switch is a bit finicky and does not like to switch with pressure against it. Make sure to not press the pistons flat, it makes getting the mechanism to reverse a bit of a pain.
Tool works great. As with any ratchet mechanism, there needs to be some pressure on it for it to work properly or it will spin without ratcheting. Some have complained of this, but it’s very easy to just squeeze it a little for it to ratchet until it gets enough pressure to start pushing the caliper piston.For quick expansion before placing the tool into the caliper, you can spin one side and have it close to the right width without even using the ratchet. Easy time saving tool that I look forward
I wish I had found this earlier no need for a c clap ever again. Happy with my purchase!
I wish I could go back and kick myself. I've wrestled with C-clamps for a decade or more and now I find this stupid , crappy, cheap ass tool and all of a sudden calipers open like legs on prom night. An absolute must for brake jobs, makes changing the brake pads quick and easy. I'd buy 3 or 4 if it were practical.
Get it, your knuckles and time will love you for it.
It works great just like it should, like the magnetic adapters for multi piston calipers.
Fast shipping, works great although there does have to be tension on the tool in order for it to ratchet.
Much easier than using a C clamp to hold in the pistons. Simple but very useful!
I have always used C clamps to spread my brake pistons and decided to try these instead. I wish I had these a long time ago. This tool made my life so much easier. I would recommend this to anyone getting ready to do a bake job.
This is an awesome find for me, cause i work on brakes and I'm tired of use large pliers or c clamps.
