Purchased this OEM pad spreader after years of using a large C clamp to retract the pistons. Lucky I did for this brake job, as the bleeder screws were on the rear of the piston cup, and a C clamp would not have worked. I should have bought this a long time ago. I have purchased OEM tools in the past, and have been very satisfied with their performance compared to their cost. Would rate them below Snap On, and Mac tools of course, but much better than any cheap Chinese tool from your local store. A similar quality to the Crafstman brand, and they carry a lifetime warranty, too. Other cheap similar pad spreader reviews indicated the knob was prone to breaking, or slipping around the threaded shaft. I feel this is a non issue with this tool, as it feels very precise and stoudt while turning the knob. Purchase this and you will not be dissapointed.

This is one of the simplest (and least-expensive) automotive tools I've purchased, but it is worth the $10 I paid. I used to use a giant C-Clamp (about 5x heavier than this spreader, and more awkward to boot) to push the piston back in on my disc brakes. Now I use this spreader, as it's a little simpler and easier to use.

Just stick the large metal piece in the brake, take one of the old pads and place it against the piston, and tighten the spreader until you begin pushing the piston back in. Just be careful to not push too far (which is easy to do with this spreader, since it's so easy to screw in compared to my C-Clamp), or the gasket around the piston might squish out in a weird way!

Best of luck!

Just what I needed to help reset the brake caliper on both my Silverado and Uplander van. It does take a bit of elbow grease to turn the knob. Retain one of the old pads and use it to help keep the entire caliper level as you turn.

I bought this at AutoZ0ne for four.99 on sale and bought a Lisle brand one from Oreally's to try them both. The lisle brand had a thread crossed and I returned it after doing one side of my minivan. The OEM brand was easy to use and of similar build quality minus the crossed thread. I was able to use the OEM brake pad spreader with one hand, while the other held the caliper. Great investment for under 10 bucks.

Most previous units I've had for this purpose actually have two cross pieces and they both expand in opposite directions to compress the piston without any additional tools needed. With this unit I had to actually put a wrench cross ways on the piston and let the center bolt push into it because the bolt itself wasn't long enough to touch the piston side by itself. I really wasn't paying attention when I bought this one, I thought they all worked basically the same. It did work, but there are better units out there, you might have to pay a little more but in the long run it might be worth it. If I had to get another cheap unit like this, I'd try to find one with a longer center bolt.

I was thinking this plastic would be *cheap*, but it is far from it. The ABS plastic is SOLID. You do need to leave one brake shoe in while using the spreader, but that's just fine. It's a great, inexpensive option to the pricey ones.

Worked fine on both single and double piston calipers. With the backing plate bearing on the inside of the caliper's outer pad stop fingers, used piston-side old pad to react the tool's press screw against while turning the screw and pistons easily retracted fully into cylinders. No complaints.

While a large C-clap works as well, I decided to buy this based on prior reviews. It works as described.
