I'm a mechanic and do brake jobs fairly regularly. I was looking for something quicker than my old hand screw in caliper reseter and this did the job... for precisely three sets of brakes.

I used them on a small car (Chevy Aveo) and squeezed the handle with medium pressure and the metal collar in the middle snapped, rendering the tool utterly useless. The metal looks like a bunch of aluminum dust compressed together, much like particle board. It wasn't even a frozen caliper because the piston went back with my old hand screw tool. It worked fine but I suggest you only use it gently. If you have any sign of resistance just grab a C clamp or something.

I'm a professional mechanic and I've been using the Lisle break pad spreader(it's really a caliper depressor) for about 8 months now. I was worried after seeing the bad review here on Amazon, but after searching and finding no other viable options I bought this. It appears to be the same unit that the Matco truck guy sells. The quality of the unit seems exceptional and has held up great for me so far. I could see this unit possibly breaking in the wrong hands. It works great it you squeeze the handle slowly as the caliper will not want to move easily. If someone tried using this on a frozen caliper or the ratcheting style calipers I could see it breaking due to misuse - I'm not saying the other reviewer did this, I'm just surprised that his unit broke so easily. A caliper shouldn't require extensive amount of strength to depress when using this tool, if it does the problem is probably with the caliper. The metal it is made out of seems plenty solid and in no way did it seem as cheap as the other reviewer led me to believe. If mine broke today I would definitely order another one, this is an essential tool for any mechanic or diy'er.

Update 2/13/13: This tool is still performing great. I just helped a buddy do his front brakes and although he insisted he had everything to do the job(he did), I brought these along just in case. I handed them to him when it came time to depress the caliper and he kind of looked at me funny. At first he wanted to use his trusty C-clamp but I insisted he try this tool. I showed them how they worked and let him try them out on both calipers. At the end of the brake job he was asking who made them and where he could get them.

I own all the Lisle Brake Pad Spreaders and they're all awesome tools which every mechanic should own. This version (pictured) is heavier duty than the original (black one). Although it's called speedy brake pad spreader, you should always compress calipers slowly (and with the bleeder screw open provided you have help to bleed the brakes after the job is complete).

Did my first set of breaks with this, and it really does make things go much more smoothly and quicker. Saved me a lot of time, and would definately recommend this.

Used it today on my front brakes, it was impressed at how easy it is to push the caliper piston back evenly and with one hand unlike fumbling with a c-clamp. The trigger squeeze type handle exerts enough pressure easily with no strain on the hand. I maintain 4 cars and I only wish I bought this sooner. All of my cars have single push back caliper pistons none are the wind back type which this might not work on. It would work on dual push back pistons if you leave the old brake pad in or some other flat material.

This is one of those tools that, after you buy it you'll be kicking yourself for not getting one years earlier. Saves a lot of time and hassle when working on single-piston disk brakes. I used to use a huge C-clamp to push pistons back in, it worked but was quite a hassle. This? One hand, one squeeze, you're done.
Just keep in mind you can't use it on self-adjusting rear calipers that have a parking brake mechanism - most of these need to be screwed in instead of pushed.

I work on cars for a living so when something can help me work on cars quicker i want it. this is the best tool for compressing single pistons calipers. they make another one for duel piston calipers which is also a must have. i can't tell u how much time this saves me if your fault rate then you know that time money so quit wasting time and buy this tool.

I bought this tool to replace a matco pad spreader that I had broke the grab ring on the rod. this one is made a lot stronger and cost allot less. I do not think this one will break.
