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.
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.
The bottle needs to have more capacity, but then maybe they made it that size knowing their weak magnet wouldn't hold a heavy big bottle, and less apt to completely drain the master cylinder if the small bottle gets full first.
I made my decision to buy this from Autozone based on a video demonstration ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkd7iq-dIQ0 (looks like the exact same product ).
UPDATE: I had to make another modification to this product. The little black cones would pull out shooting break fluid every where. Also they were easy to distort trying to push them in harder. Easy solution was to find a flexible house to slide tightly over the smaller house from the bottle and the larger hose would slide tightly over the bleeder nipple. It worked for me.

Well, the price was right but totally useless for bleeding the brakes for me. The tube is too small and would not fit over the bleed screws. Read morePublished 19 days ago by Amazon Customer
