      Great tool

      Myself not being a real mechanic I decided to give this a try anyway.  What a great product! Worked like a charm even though it doesn't have instructions.  If a novice like me can figure it out anyone can.

      I just purchased this tool and found that the end caps would not come off either of the bolts in order to insert the bolt into the backing plate.

      Just makes life easier

      Sure you can use a c-clamp and a brake pad to push the piston back in, but this makes it so much simpler. The added flexibility of being able to use it on single or dual piston calipers is incredibly nice. And, it's cheap too!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      A better option

      For the past 20 years I changed brake pads with the tried and true C-clamp method but was finding it more difficult to manage on vehicles that have calipers where the backside (piston housing) is not flat to accommodate the fixed pad of a C-clamp. I picked this spreader up on sale as an option to make life a bit easier and it does just that but still requires the balancing act of holding the caliper (or strategically supporting it) and then getting the spreader lined up while ratcheting it down. It might be a "10" in design and performance but i rate it a"7" in terms of usefulness. Just my opinion

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Nice tool.

      Works as advertised. Better than using a C-clamp to compress brake pistons. Works for both single and double pistons. Made in USA! Guaranteed for life. Good value.

      very nice

      for two piston calipers there's no tool I would rather have. These are made of great quality and have great mechanical advantage over the pistons. If you do brake jobs you need this

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Heavy Duty Disc Pad Spreader is well made and built tough

      Quality materials, tough enough to handle an impact wrench for my sticky pistons, even fell off the lift five feet to concrete floor without a scratch on threads and other surfaces.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftsman Heavy Duty Disc Pad Spreader for Single and Dual Pisto

      I used this tool shortly after buying it. It was nicer than using the old "C" clamp. I used it with a spine-flex 1/4 ratchet which allowed me to use it as a one handed speed handle. Nice and smooth operation. A definate must for doing disc brakes.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Overall a good tool

      This tool is well worth the cost.  It is a bit of a hassle to remove the 2nd screw.  THe cap should be easier to remove.
