          Comments about OTC BRAKE BLEEDER HOSE:

          Think about it "Moron Killer." Why would anyone need a bleeder hose if they had an assistant? And who is the moron killer? I think the name says it all even w/o the "Moron Killer" part.

          Comments about OTC BRAKE BLEEDER HOSE:

          attach to bleeder, tighten valve at other end, loosen bleeder nut, pump brakes steadily as many times as needed ( i did 10-20 to be sure I got all the air out). At this point all the air should be gone and pressing the brake should force brake fluid out of the tube. Tighten bleeder nut then disconnect bleeder hose and the job is done.

            Comments about OTC BRAKE BLEEDER HOSE:

            One-man Brake Bleeder Hose - Good idea, poor execution. The idea of a check valve in a brake-bleeder hose is a great idea, however the implementation of this great idea fell well short of the mark. The resitance presented by the check valve was so high that the hose separated from the end fitting when pressure was applied - spraying brake fluid everywhere but in the collection receptacle. I could only use this after removing the check valve, thus converting this undertaking to a more traditional two-person brake-bleed job.

            Operator Error - Disregard the badreview

            Comments about OTC BRAKE BLEEDER HOSE:

            This product works fine. Of course air gets sucked into the system if you let off the brake pedal. Attach the hose, open the valve a little, close the valve. Have someone press the brake pedal, open the valve till only fluid comes out, then close the valve. Do not allow the person pressing the brake to let the pedal go back up until you have closed the valve or it WILL suck air into the system. Cmon guys, this is first day stuff. Hose works. Operator error.

            Does not work. It lets air leak back into the system when you let the brake pedal come back up.

            • Q:

              The instructions given in the review titled "Operator Error - Disregard the bad review" seem to disregard the fact that OTC calls the product "One-Man Brake Bleeder Hose". Would it have been too much trouble to include a short step-by-step instruction sheet in the package? It's probably easy for people who do this on a regular basis, but not so easy for first-timers. Should the "free" (knurled) end be submerged in a container of brake fluid, or just hang there? Should it be screwed together tightly, or not? It may be a good product, but if it takes two people to use it, what's the point?
