      Craftsman Adjusting Brake Tool Makes Brake Work Less Stressful

      When working on drum brakes, add the adjusting brake tool from Craftsman to the tool must-have checklist. DIY automotive maintenance is easier when you have the right tools for the job. Working on rear drum brakes often means relying on a brake adjusting tool before the drums can be pulled free for maintenance. This Craftsman adjusting brake tool features an offset head that will fit most drum brakes, allowing you to adjust the clearance between the brake drum and the brake shoe. If the drum is rusted to the wheel hub, it may be best to consult a trusted mechanic.

      The Craftsman adjusting brake tool works great for automotive brake jobs and also for brake adjustments on a mountain bike or other bicycle with disc brakes. It's usually better to use an adjusting brake tool versus a screwdriver for this type of work. This tool's offset head allows for an easy fit when tackling almost any adjustment job.

      • The adjusting brake tool from Craftsman is an essential tool for working on drum brakes and also can be used to adjust disc brakes on bicycles
      • Its offset head fits most drum brakes, regardless of make and model
      • Ideal tool for adjusting clearance between the brake drum and the brake shoe
      • Crafted from durable steel and features a silver finish
      • This sturdy tool from Craftsman weighs less than one pound
      • Easily fits into a tool box or on-board storage container when working away from home
      • Because it's a Craftsman tool, it comes with a Lifetime warranty

      Brake Adjustment Made Easy

      This is an ideal tool to adjust the old drum brakes on now "classic" vehicles. It has both an angled and straight blade to let you reach wherever the adjustment wheel is on your application.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Simple Brake Adjusting Tool

      I bought this tool to adjust the electric brakes on my 16' car hauler. Not a tough job by any means, and I suppose I could've fiddled with a flathead screwdriver and gotten it done - but in my opinion it's always nice to use the right tool for the job. At this price point, and with the Craftsman name stamped into the tool and standing behind the product, it was a no brainer for me.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Better than a screwdriver when adjust drum brakes

      This is one of the few tools you have a hard time justify buying until you actual do and wonder how you got by without it. Works as designed in adjusting drum brake star wheels in setting drum shoe to drum gap. Knock a point off because it is another tool that is no longer made here in the USA but now Taiwan. Still a quality piece but I have a hard time believing this could not still be made here and employing people here.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftsman Adjusting Brake Tool

      When you are adjusting the drum brakes on your old car, these tools are the best at performing that job! Yes, a slotted screwdriver can get in there on some model cars, but for some others you really need the curved tips!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.
