3rd Hand Brake Tool (Instructional Video)
#1
Hello everyone this video is on 3rd hand brake tools. It's purpose is to show that these type of tools are a nice alternative to 4th hand brake tools. I may make mistakes so it is fine to laugh Smile .

Way to go Bill now for the Park brake you don't need that one at all so if you will please send it to me lol.
Thats the one tool I have been wanting here but I have not found where to buy one at and no park tool does not list it any more :-(
And no I want go to ebay I have got burn one time and thats all it took for me. Any ideas where I may could get one online? Thought you did a good video for us all. You did give me some ideas on how to make one so when I get a little time I'll have to go out to my little shop and have at it.
My dad always told me a Sledge a matic can fix any thing.

Thank you tino and Alex. Surly I am not positive they stock these online other then ebay. You may find another website that does. As far as the other ones I am pretty sure they are becoming rare as the 4th hand Park BT-2 has replaced them. If one is really in a bind they could use a shoestring, big rubber band, or the sort the idea is to keep the caliper in a state held up against the wheel wall . The string method works with "almost" all type of brakes.

Hey nice video. I need to learn how to do that.

Not sure why but a basic c-clamp available for a few bucks at any hardware store would do the job. I got them in several sizes for many applications. I just use my fingers. Have band aids will travel. :-))
Never Give Up!!!
