      Craftsman Brake Spring Pliers

      An absolute must if you own a car with drum brakes! I have owned many classic cars and the most recent is my 1972 Chevy El Camino. I got the car from my dad and before he passed on he told me that he had planned on replacing the rear brak shoes since it had been a while since he last did any brake work.

      I once had a pair of these pliers when I was active in restoring Mustangs but when the time came for this brake job those pliers were nowhere to be found. Too bad, too, I really liked them. At any rate, I had to buy this pair and I'm happy to say that the quality hasn't changed a bit since I bought that last pair!

      There was one slight difference I noted in the new Craftsman pair over the older pair and that was that they fit the spring retainer just a wee better than before. On the old pair the retainer cap removal portion of the tool was a bit undersized which meant that they never really seated themselves over the retainer, just more or less pushed on it.

      Anyways, these are a welcome addition to my tool chest once again!

      Slick tool

      Tired of using vice grip pliers to get your springs off? Buy this tool. The notch on the end of the handle takes springs off with little or no effort. Just put the notch on the spring post rotate around and off comes the spring. Use the other handle end to feed the spring back on to the post.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great as always!!

      I found myself in need of this item to do a brake repair job on my car that I use for business travel. As always, with Craftsman, I got excellent workmanship with great value. The particular tool was on sale the day that I bought it, making it an even bigger value. I highly recommend Craftsman tools to everyone.
