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. It's just one of those tools that some people don't even know exists, but once you do you wonder how you lived without it.

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.

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).

I was debating on the cheaper model that you have to turn the handle to force the claiper piston back in and by the time I had the piston pushed an 1/8 inch of the way in, the threaded handle was bent 45 degrees and rendered the spreader useless. I decided to stop and see if I could find a replacement spreader and came across this model. I decided it was time I spent a little extra to hopefully get a better spreader. As soon as I took them out of the box, I could tell they were going to work great. The weight tells me they are made strong and will last a long time. I used them on the calipers with the frozen pistons and they went all the way back in with very little effort. If you do a lot of disc brake work, I would definitely recommend these spreaders to any mechanic out there. I am completely satisfied on the quality of this model.

On a C5 Corvette front caliper, the portion that should fit into the opening opposite the caliper piston, will not quite fit. It's just a little too big, but unfortunately, only a little, so it wants to slip and knock off the nice factory paint on the caliper. It should be ground down about 1/8" to 1/4" narrower overall.

Works great on the breaks in my 1989 buick lesabre. Very easy to use and works good on where the bolts go as well ,where they needed to be pushed back as well. Though if they are frozen in the bolt area you may need extra tools to push them out to grease them.
