Must-have for braided lines

May 19, 2011
Make sure you have a vise, otherwise it's tricky to hold onto the hose and the device. Before this thing I suffered many bloody fingers and frustration trying to get the hose into the hose ends, but with it honestly it only took about two minutes per hose end. Too expensive for what it is in my opinion, but seems like it will last a lifetime so do the math.
Pros:
  • Can Withstand Use
  • Easy To Use
Yes, I recommend this product.

KOUL TOOL BRAIDED HOSE INSTALLATION TOOL

February 11, 2012
I used Speedway stainless braided hose and fittings to make fuel lines. I found that I really didn't need this tool to get great results. If I had used a different brand of fittings and hose, maybe it would have been more beneficial.
Pros:
  • Reliable
  • Quality Construction
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are only for use with steel braided hose with a rubber inner. I believe those hoses have a teflon inner liner and this tool will not work with that type of hose.
