PUSHLOCK HOSE TOOL


Recommended Posts

Pffffft.....  Who needs one of those fancy tools.  Assembly is so easy, especially when you can easily stink up the house warming up a can of engine oil on the kitchen stove and then simply dunking the end of the hose for a few minutes.  You'll only pop a few eye blood vessels and hopefully not blow though your shorts as you soil yourself trying to shove the two pieces together with all the strength you can muster.....generally resulting in a small gap between hose and fitting as you near the end, followed by some harsh language.

Maybe I do need one.

Nice tool, a must have if you have extra cash.

Here is another tool to have, http://www.handsontools.com/Mastercool-71475-Universal-Hydraulic-Flaring-Tool-Set_p_2039.html

Much cheaper on ebay, this one has pictures of different flares. 

My daily driver has bad brake and fuel lines discovered after I changed rusty leaky fuel tank. So instead of trying to piece things together with random fittings I bought 2 coils off line 3/16 and 5/16 I'll be able to make flare and quick-connect fittings all out of one line without  splices. Plus I was planning on redoing the brake lines on my truck hope this thing works as advertised. I actually bought a flaring tool before that was Calvan. Sold it to a friend.    https://www.walmart.com/ip/Cal-Van-Tools-165-In-Line-Flaring-Tool-For-3-16-To-3-8-4.75MM-To-8MM-Makes-Single-Double-Or-Bubble-Flares-Case/49773827?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=1397&adid=22222222228037422383&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=m&wl3=85501913930&wl4=pla-193583642690&wl5=9018697&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=112550031&wl11=online&wl12=49773827&wl13=&veh=sem      and it did good double flares, butt bubble flares little bit ugly. And it wasn't able to do Quick Connect fittings. You can find better deals im sure. Though I'd share.
