Great little tool. All I had to do was crack the valve and it practically bled itself. Only problem was the hose was a little small and was difficult to fit onto bleeder valve. I would recommend getting larger tubing and an adapter.

First, the plastic bottle is tiny and not very useful. Worthless if you want to flush the brake lines. Second, the magnet is almost too weak to hold the empty bottle. What happens when the bottle fills with fluid and the weight of the bottle increases four times? The hose included with the bottle will not fit a bleeder valve. The adaptors they include will also not positively attach to the bleeder valve. They call this a "One Man Bleeder" because you'll need one man to hold this collection bottle onto the bleeder valve (and another man or two to perform the bleed). Unfortunately, I opened the package to check it out so I can't return it. Ended up making my own collection bottle from a two foot piece of clear fuel line and an empty Ragu spaghetti sauce bottle found in my trash can.

      Worked just fine. Luckily it came with two brake bleeder tips because one of them broke off in the bleeder screw, but was able to pull it out.

        The magnet is very week. The plastic adaptations broke off in the bleeder valve. Only plus was it did keep air out of breaks.

                Comments about AutoCraft 7 pc One-Man Brake Bleeder:

                It's flimsy, but it actually works! Cannister is far too small at 3 ounces, so be careful not to overfill it. Still, at three ounces you probably need to refill the main reservoir anyway, which is most likely a safety measure to prevent air into the system. Do not pump the brake pedal more than 3-4 times. Have used pressurized systems before which don't require pedal interaction or monitoring, which are a little more expensive, but this still works with just a little more labor and only one man. It's a "guestimate" when you are done.

                  Comments about AutoCraft 7 pc One-Man Brake Bleeder:

                  Calling it one-man is accurate but a little ambitious. It relies on self creating vacuum of the included reservoir, after pushing down on the pedal, to hold the pressure. You as the "one-man" have to then get out of your vehicle and open/close the bleeder valves with each pedal push. Not the quickest or most efficient way to bleed hydraulics but does just that. Magnet not even strong enough to hold an empty bottle on any ferrous metal. No instructions.
