Does this eliminate need to bleed brake system?
Sean S June 19, 2018
Yes, by simply compressing the caliper you avoid opening the brake system to air and eliminating the need to bleed the brakes. Thank you!
Adam G June 19, 2018
Yes definitely. Only way to go.

Yes, just loosen your cap and make sure you don’t over flow your brake fluid
D A August 13, 2019
No, this is a tool used to push the piston back into the caliper when installing new brake pads. If you have air in the lines you still need to bleed the air out. If you are installing new pads to the brakes you need to push the piston back to a full open position and this tool will help you do that.

Dis kit bave to bleues my lines
E M November 27, 2019
No it does not
I O December 26, 2019
Jawed S January 29, 2020
As long as you don’t open the bleeder screws or have brake fluid leak there’s no reason to bleed the brakes. The tool is just for pressing the piston back into the caliper

I added this on to try it out, I have done my brakes for years and have used a c-clamp and piece of wood. I dont know why I hadnt bought one of these before. I was so easy to compress the caliper! Love it! If you are thinking about it, just do it!
June 26, 2019
super handy tool
slick little tool to depress the caliper piston. easier than using pliers or hammer or other struggles.
June 27, 2019
Perfect Review
Works perfectly no problems with it.
July 3, 2019
Pretty upfront easy to use
Just that, kind of have to figure best place to place the spreader so that you can affectively do a complete compression but easier then the clamp trick.
July 4, 2019
Works great!
You can use a C clamp, but this definitely puts equal pressure on the caliper piston. Less chance of doing any damage to the caliper. Pay the 15 bucks and never wear it out. It will outlast you.
July 6, 2019
Very EASY to use and works wonderful!!!! Try it!

Cruiser Brakes
The new brakes for my 2006 PT Cruiser arrived promptly and fitted exactly as shown in the 1aauto video. Would recommend purchasing from 1aauto to anyone.

Nice handy tool I needed to change my breaks out!!!
August 29, 2019
a must!
Everyone who has ever done brake work needs this little gem! At a glance you may think you dont. That your C-Clamp method works just fine. Youre wrong. This little tool makes all the difference in the world. It makes compressing the caliper so simple and easy.

Making work easy
I purchased the caliper hangers and piston compressor tool. These two simple parts at a low price makes the repair much more manageable Thank you
December 8, 2019
Generic tool
This tool has potential if only the compressor plate was smaller. Did not fit the double piston caliper of the Lexus ls430 application.
December 24, 2019
The same part is like 8 bucks at the part store not 15, wish I had know that

Brake Pad Spreader
I haven’t used this one, just bought it to have for when needed at later time. I have used them before and they do work well. I’m old school and have just used a 6� C-Clamp for 40+ years. Have learned though, on some vehicles you will need this spreader.

Brake Caliper Press
Really good tool to have. Worked really well, made the job much easier.
May 2, 2020
Works well
Once I figured out how to properly use the spreader (my own lack of experience) I was very happy to have bought it for my brake change. My only issue was how the twist top would separate from the bolt that the spreader rotates on. I just pushed it back in and kept a watchful eye on it.
May 14, 2020
Does what it says.
Very helpful tool.
May 23, 2020
Great tool
Very helpful tool if you are doing your brakes
