The first thing I want to mention is the first thing that hit me when it arrived. It is much bigger and much much beefier than it looks in the picture. The one I got is light grey instead of black as well, but I don't care. One of the reasons I hesitated on this product is because it looked like a plastic or at least rinky dink gimmick. But I relied on the positive reviews and bought it anyway, because I was sick of using a C clamp that never seemed to seat easliy or perfectly square due to brake hose or caliper design, etc. The c clamp was even more of a pain on dual piston calipers, trying to get it perfectly centered and squared up so the pistons go straight back and do not get cock-eyed and stuck. Can I get by with the C clamp? Sure, but it was almost always more of a pain than I'd like, and I found myself seemingly doing more brake jobs lately.
Now, I've only used this once, on front dual piston calipers, and it worked awesome. It is super easy to use, and pushed them back without any trouble.
One tip I'll give is that you need to let the pistons depress back slowly. Each squeeze of the trigger does not just instantly jam the pistons back, but instead, it builds pressure against them, which moves the pistons back slowly. Essentially you build up the pressure, and as the pistons move back, the pressure is obviously going down, so what you do is give it an extra squeeze as the pistons move, and maintain the pressure against them, which forces them back. It worked great for this, and took maybe 30 seconds or less per side total time to depress the pistons, from grabbing the tool, putting it on the caliper, and fully depressing both pistons.Read more ›
It's also a fairly needless luxury.
Was it slightly handier than using a C-clamp? Yes.
Was the slight handierness worth the money I spent on it? Not really.
Will it look cool when other guys see me doing a brake job? Probably.
I don't regret buying it, but I wouldn't replace it if it broke...which it probably won't. It's pretty solid. If I did brakes every day, I might, and that's a big 'might', find this worth the money. A C-clamp can scratch calipers, and it can be a hassle on roundy surfaces. This solves those problems in an elegant, simple manner. The pro might care about such things.
The cons are, it costs more than a few C-clamps, it's very bulky in comparison, and it's an extra tool to keep track of. It's also kind of weird to use until you get it figured out, after which it's quick.
So if you like a lot of tools, you have extra money in your pocket, you want to impress other dudes, or you're a pro, this is just the thing.
Otherwise, I suggest you go with C-clamps.
I am giving it 5 stars, because it does exactly what it was intended to do, it is very well made, and I don't feel ripped off.
I highly recommend this product.
