Too big to fit-in to hook onto the spring Simply use a pair of needle-nose vice-grip pliers. Pliers worked GREAT for removing and replacing the springs.

The body on this, where you would hook on to the spring shaft, is too thick. I couldn't find any way to hook onto the spring, as it was pressed up against the back plate of the wheel mount.

Prior to purchasing this tool and its big brother the Lisle 44800 Heavy-Duty Brake Spring Tool, I could count on cutting a couple of knuckles and wasting considerable time removing and replacing drum brake springs. These two tools are real time savers.

For those of you like me who can't decide and are considering buying both this item along with needle nose pliers - this item works much, much better at the bottom thicker spring. That said, the metal is starting to bend after first shoe replacement. Be prepared for a strenuous workout when replacing your shoes - night and day compared to replacing pads.

Very helpful for working on cramped foreign car drum brakes. Instructions could be better. Then again, it is assumed that anyone capable of performing this kind of job should be able to figure out that the brake spring can't be grabbed until the tool's shaft is backed out enough to completely clear the slot in the tip.

I bought this product to get at stubborn brake springs. It works very well as long as you use it correctly. The one I received is not the black one in the picture. The one that I got is a red handle, but they both do the same job.

I recommend this tool!

Purchased this tool to simplify the many brake jobs I perform. Unfortunately this tool is not designed to work on shoe-to-shoe springs. The tool was too big for in-hat parking brake applications on vehicles with rear rotors. The tool was also unusable on rear drum brakes that have shoe-to-shoe upper springs. It does not have a blow-molded case and looks great buried with all the other "loose" application specific tools in my tool chest. This tool has helped on vehicles built pre-1995 and on vehicles larger than passenger cars. I do recommend this tool for the tasks it can be used on. Never had the tool break on me, then again I do read instructions, and can not say how it would perform if not following directions. Research the tool instructions for any tool before you make a purchase and prior to each use. It will save you wasted time, money, and doctor visits.

First, I didn't buy this item through Amazon. I believe I got it at a local auto parts store. If you need a brake spring tool in this style order a Lisle 44800 instead of this Lisle item, the larger one is only a few dollars more. When I was tightening it up the tip that grabs the spring broke off. Only difference between this item and 44800 is the size. If the larger 44800 will not fit I would use a pair of needle nose vise grips. I like this style of spring tool because there is less chance of burying the hook end of a brake spring in your hand when the needle nose vise grips slip (if you've ever done drum brakes you know what I am meaning.)

So I had the misfortune of having to replace my brakes recently. I purchased one of these brakes spring tools and I am glad I did. You will see that the end piece of this tool, which has a one inch adjuster, the black piece. Slip the grooved area onto the straight part of the spring and turn the handle to tighten; it sure does make it a lot easier to stretch a new spring. I have tried to remove the springs with a vise grip and pliers but the brake spring tool is so much easier and Best $5 I have spent on a long time!
