3 oz bottle way to small and since magnet is weak I'd suggest a way to hold it in place. I used a slot where the coil joints the frame above bleeder. I suggest you coat the bleeder tube connection with grease to keep air from going into the bleeder threads during process. It came with 2 small hoses?? and 1 longer one. Longer one was about 1 ft long, 2 ft would be better. Bled each front brake in less than 2 minutes each.

Don't bother

Flimsy little product. Tubbing is too small for standard car bleeder valves. Don't bother spending the money

      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.

          This was a time saver. The magnet is weak, but I used a stronger magnet and it held to any part of the rusted car I needed it to stick. A lot of the other reviews complained about the bottle being small. This keep me from draing the RES.

          Comments about Autocraft 7 pc One-Man Brake Bleeder:

          This was a great tool that saved me a lot of time and frustration. Loosen up the bleeder, then put the conical fitting into the hole in the bleeder. After that, you pump the brakes until there's no more air in the line: very easy and being able to do it without an extra person was great. The only downfall is the magnet is weak, but on my car I was able to rest the bottle on an edge and did not rely solely on the magnet to support the bottle. Otherwise, this thing was great and can't be beat for the price.

            Great = works well on dodge caravan, saved me over $75 over having a shop do it.
            Not Great = no description of how all the fittings included are to be used, Bleed screw connector not soft enough to be a secure connection, ( has tendency to get blown off by bleed flow.
