This tool made changing the rear brakes on my 98 Accord simple, quick, and easy. You will need a 3/8 drive socket extension if you don't already have one in your tool kit. Easy to use, small, and a good tool if you do work on your own vehicles. Well worth it for the home mechanics tool kit!

This tool is made from pot metal and the "nubs" intended to engage the piston will wear away quickly.

This is supposed to be a "Universal Tool" - but it did not fit ANY of the calipers on my Mustang (Cobra calipers) or my Taurus.

Spend the money and get a real tool. The price on this poor substitute is scandalous.

            This tool is not for a 2012 Taurus. Sales person picked it out for my Taurus. Drove 30 miles home just to find out it was too small for my car. Useless and a waste of my time.

                    Purchased this from my local Advance Auto Parts store to turn-in the rear brake caliper pistons on my 2002 Honda Accord EX V6 Coupe. It worked great!

                    It is an inexpensive yet effective tool if you are replacing the rear brake pads on your Honda Accord.

                    Simply attach it to a 3/8" ratchet (with an extension bar), and you can turn the caliper piston with ease.

                    Seems to work fine on my son's Hyundai, but "not so much" on my wife's Ford Freestar. Small, versatile, stores easily on my 3/8ths socket holder. Seems OK for the general DIY mechanic - except for Fords, per the reviews.

                            Is not compatable with my Mustang. Took it back to the store and they said I had to shave down the prongs to get it to work on a ford. The prongs dont look strong enough to shave them down as much as needed.
