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.

      The product is cheap. It did work. However, the plastic tip that goes into the bleeder value broke the first time I used it. Thankfully there was two in the kit.

      Less than I expected

      from Massachusetts

      Cons

      • Lacks A Check Valve
      • Not Worth The Price

      Best Uses

      • Motorcycles
      • Small Vehicles

      Comments about AutoCraft 7 pc One-Man Brake Bleeder:

      I bought this to help me bleed the brakes on my truck. The collection bottle is tiny and the tubing was far too small for my bleeder valves. It also lacks a check valve of any sort, so ideally it should be pre-loaded with some brake fluid in order to block air from entering your system when first opening your bleed fitting. I needed far more bottle capacity so I made my own bleed system from an empty pancake syrup container and 3' of aquarium air tubing. I should have done this first instead of wasting enough money to buy lunch on what looks like a child's toy. Unfortunately I ripped open the package to check it out and cannot return it.

      Last resort option

      from Greater DC

      Pros

        Cons

        • Small Dia hose
        • weak magnet

        Best Uses

          Comments about AutoCraft 7 pc One-Man Brake Bleeder:

          The magnet is weak. Can't even hold its own weight without any fluid in it. I had to heat the hose and stretch it to fit over my bleeders. Finally it's small so you can only pump 3 to 5 times and it's full. That being said, it takes a while to use this to change out all you cars fluid. I modified me to make it work but it would have been easier to get another one.
          But it was my last resort.

              Comments about AutoCraft 7 pc One-Man Brake Bleeder:

              I bought this kit to do a complete fluid replacement on the front and rear brakes of my Harley-Davidson. It worked like it was made for my bike.
              The magnet stuck like glue to my brake rotors which is where I positioned the bottle. VERY convenient! I had no problem with the tapered nozzle fitting into the bleeder valve hole as I see others did in previous reviews. There is no need to force it. It's a snug fit with gentle pressure and there's no leakage.
              The bottle is small but, I found that to be a plus because it didn't get in the way and it only takes a couple of seconds to remove the bottle, drain it and screw back on. I drained the bottle four times for each brake line (front and rear).
              This was the easiest, fastest brake bleeding I've ever performed and no mess.

                For such a bargain price, this little tool saves time and trouble when bleeding brakes. I had not done a brake job in more than 35 years but this device made bleeding the disc brakes on our YJ Jeep easy and simple.

                    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.
