Product Description

Do It Yourself With This Craftsman Disc Brake Pad Spreader

Take care of your equipment by using the right tools, such as the disc brake pad spreader. This durable device is simple to use. Simply attach it to the brake and begin to tighten until the piston is compressed. The spreader is easier to turn than a C clamp, and it's compact enough to fit into spaces where a clamp is either an awkward or impossible fit.

The Craftsman disc brake pad spreader is made of durable steel with a black oxide finish that fights corrosion. The screw handle is easy-grip plastic. The spreader is eight inches long and a weighs 0.6 pounds. It works for most cars and light trucks. The tool comes with a user's guide to walk you through the process. The spreader is backed by Craftsman's lifetime warranty.

Nice tool to have

This is one of those tools that is not necessary, but makes life easier. It is decent quality does what it is intended to do. Keep the threads lubed and should last a long time even for daily use.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Does What You Would Expect

Simple design. Slip it in the caliper and crank it with an old brake pad fitted and it will reset the caliper piston so you can fit the new pad. No complaints with it. It's pretty sturdy and the grip hasn't stripped off yet. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase. It beats using channel locks.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worked very well

Over the years I have worked with many different brands of brake spreaders, this is by far not the best one I have ever used, however it is still very good and is currently being used daily in my shop. I do see that the only flaw would be the knob you turn, I do see that it will most likely come off some day but for now it is operating smoothly, I would still recommend to anyone to purchase one because it does get the job done and the price you pay for a tool like this is a great deal, and to Craftsman I would recommend a different type knob in the future.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great tool, makes job easy

I've been using this tool for years and have always had great results.  Works well for both single and double pistons.  Just put something flat in the caliper (like an old brake pad) to push against and it works great. Well worth the $10.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

useless waste of money

This tool is completely useless and a waste of money! The best tool to compress the piston in a brake caliper is a set of 16" craftsman channel lock type pliers. this tool is a design that was come up with to sell that's it. even a six" c clamp works a lot better. i tried to use it one time and it has been sitting in the bottom of my box since. in most cases you can stick a small prybar or large screw driver in the hole threw the top of the caliper into the grooves in the rotor and pry back towards you and get them to compressed before taking the caliper of the car.
