It has a few problems:
1. The bottle must be positioned higher than the brake cylinder to allow air bubbles to rise and go into the bottle. To do this, there's a magnetic disk on the back of the bottle that you're supposed to place on the frame of the car. The magnet is not very strong, and when the bottle fills with brake fluid, the magnet will likely let go and then the bottle falls on the ground, spills brake fluid, etc. Big mess ! If the frame is rusty, forget it !
2. After you bleed the brake and close the bleed valve you remove the tube and tapered fitting from the valve. If you don't pay close attention, you will VERY LIKELY have brake fluid running out of the bottle and all over your hands, clothing and the ground.
Good things about the product: (1) It DOES do what it claims. (2) It's dirt cheap. (3) It comes with a lifetime warranty from OEM Tools.
I began by connecting the tube to the bottle. I then realized the bottle was too small and there wouldn't be an easy way to empty it. I tried to remove the tube and the plastic bottle nozzle tore off. I ended up cutting the tube off the nozzle.
I attached the pointy plastic nozzle to the other end of the tube. I tried to hook it up to the bleed valve but the nozzle keeps coming loose. It kept leaking fluid everywhere. I finally got it changed by I got a lot of air in my rear brake line and I will have to go back and flush out the air bubbles. It took me a long time and a lot of paper towels and was a huge pain in the butt because the longest tube is hardly long enough.
If I had it over again, I would go to Home Depot and buy a plastic tube that fits tightly over the bleed valve then just use a razor to slice it off when I was done.
Basically, the plastic nozzles suck. The bottle sucks. The tubes can be used but are too short (and therefore suck). Bottom line: go another route.
The bottle is tiny. Depending on what exactly you're doing this might prove troublesome. I was bleeding the caliper at each wheel before removing and changing pads. Basically I wanted to get the majority of the old brake fluid out of each caliper before forcing the fluid back into the system (because the fluid at the caliper is where the fluid breaks down over time the worst. The small size of the bottle means I would get about 4 pumps of the brake pedal before I needed to empty the bottle. It didn't kill me, but it definitely added time to the whole project since I was flushing the majority of the fluid out.
The magnet is worthless. It's a very thin, very weak magnet and it has almost no grip. I still used it, but instead of risking the magnet, I wedged the little silver disc in between the fender liner to hold the bottle.
The different fittings and tubing are a nice touch, but most are too small to do anything. I heated up the tubing just a bit to make it more pliable and forced it over my bleed screw fitting. Just barely fit, but at least it was tight. without heating and stretching it a bit, the tubing is very rigid and tends to slip off the plastic fittings.
Overall, it really is a neat little tool and it does indeed make it possible for one person to bleed the brakes, albeit quite inefficiently. I might glue on a new magnet, super glue some of the tubing onto fittings and add it to my motorcycle toolbox. But for larger applications, a friend's assistance or a pickle jar copy might be better suited.

It works well, however the bottle is a little small. It is an easy to use tool for a gravity bleed. It takes time but it works. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Harbinger
