Damn , so easy to use.
So easy to use , stress free I can't believe it took me this long for a tool that can do the job without damaging the caliper pistons .
Easy to use
I now have a functioning, ratcheting caliper press that I couldn't be happier with. This tool works well and fits most calipers. My hands do not get fatigued from the constant squeezing or turning of other press tools, and the pistons retract straight every time.
Wonderful tool for brake jobs!
Where has this been all my life!? I don't know how or why I hadn't bought one of these before. I've spent nearly 20 years doing my own brake pad and rotor swaps and always used fingers or a c-clamp to push the pistons back in. This tool is so easy to use and so simply effective in its job that I feel like an idiot for not buying one 20 years ago.
No more messing with a c-clamp and pieces of wood! Granted this is a more expensive option to the cheaper alternatives, this thing feels quality. Completely resets my dual piston calipers evenly, so no more having to bleed the air out for uneven pistons and guesswork. I would recommend that, with ANY tool that has threads and applies pressure, like a ball joint press or vise, put some thick automotive grease on the threads. It lubricates and adds a thin barrier against pressure wear on the threads, and extends the life of your tool significantly!
I was a brake tech for a while at a local Meinekes and would get dual and quad piston calipers in a lot so i finally ponied up for this puppy and let me tell you something; this thing is tits. Never met a caliper it wouldn't fit in. And I love the rathetching device. Would and do highly recommend.
