Very useful and simple.

October 21, 2015
Simple but useful. This product is very simple in design yet useful for a single mechanic. The only problem is having to constantly monitor the level of fluid in the reservoir.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This product lacked a sufficient amount

April 22, 2013
I feel this kit lacked sufficient vacuum to fill the lines on a new brake system. I really had to do a lot of pumping to get fluid to each wheel.
No, I would not recommend this product.

A one man bleeder that worked

March 31, 2012
I used this product to bleed the brakes on my T-Bucket. It took me a little time to get use to seeing bubbles in the line continually during the bleeding process. The bubbles were apparently coming from around the threads of the bleeder which is expected when using vacuum. It did get the job done with minimal effort.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I Could Not Get This To Work

June 27, 2011
I tried everything to get this product to work without success. It would not pull enough vacum to move the fluid/air through the lines. After about 1 hour of trying I went back to the old method "my wife". It's not worth sending back - lesson learned.
No, I would not recommend this product.

You can stop when you see no more air bubles in line. Test pedddle for proper feel, continue to blled if not satisfactory.

Are any of the fittings compatible with metric calipers? also my issue is eventhough the hose may be sealed tight to the fitting end how can I stop leaking around the threads? I assume theres not much one could do for that..

Sorry this does not come with adapter fittings to fit a metric caliper. You will simply slide the clear hose over the bleeder screw an loosen the bleeder to use this vacuum bleeder. To reduce leakage around the threads of the bleeder during bleeding you can wrap the bleeder threads with thread tape.
