  • Brake line forming tool
    Best thing since sliced bread! Had to fabricate brake lines on my 91 Cherokee from the master cylinder to the proportioning valve and along the frame rails.. This tool made fabricating lines a breeze. I was able to get close to the firewall and frame to make very clean and professional looking bends. My other tubing bender makes bendsthat are too wide. With this tool I can make very tight bends that look great. Along with the on car flaring tool I don't need anything else to make professional looking brake lines.
  • Works Really Well!
    I'm a novice with brake lines. I used this tool to bend a line that required a tight 180 today and was really happy with the result! You really can't beat Eastwood for great value and unique solutions to common automotive repair problems!
  • brake line tool
    good product works really well to make tight bends and can get it in tight places without removing the line every time. will mark up the line some,especially coated ones. does not work real well with stainless
  • Handy tool
    Works perfect for tight bends , gets into tight places and made very sturdy
  • Good for tight spots
    Very handy little guy for tight corners and tight spots.
  • Fast and easy to use
    Makes fast and easy bends in soft tubing. A lot easier to use than most bending tools.
  • Must Have Tool
    This is a must have tool for any custom brake line fabrication,eliminates head scratching and time waisting guess work.Great tool,Eastwood !
  • Well built
    I thought the tool worked well. I have never ran brake lines before but after I was finished I was impressed. I thought it looks very professional. Could not have done it without this tool.
  • great tool
    I bought this 3 week ago and happy I fix my brake line for my self
  • super tool
    works great on smaller lines, bends are nice and tight, easy to use and didn't cost a very much.....thanks guys a long awaited addition to my tool box
  • brake pliers
    Very cool tool works great wish I had one years ago
  • Works well
    Only tried it on a scrap peice of tubing so far, but it worked great. I made a tight bend in 3/16" brake tubing, and it looked good with no kinking of the tubing. I'll be putting it to use in a day or two replumbing the brakes on a 67 Dodge Charger.
  • Awesome Pliers
    I bought these bending pliers on a whim and I'm glad I did!! I had some brake lines I needed bent due to doing a motor swap and I almost freaked out til my buddy showed the pliers to me. So not only did the pliers do their job perfectly (fast too) they also saved me a bunch of money. I'm looking forward to doing more business
  • A great tool
    I have just purchased this tool and found it to be a great for tweaking the brake line for the correct fit into the Brake Cylinder or Proportional Valve. It does leave a small mark where the jaws clamp onto the line but nothing that will impede the flow of fluid through to the brakes. All up, it works for me.
  • JC
    Great tool!
    Easy to use, straight forward and always a great bend where you want it in those tight areas.
  • Great Tool at a good price!
    I needed a good quality tube plier for tight bents close to fittings. I looked at several different pliers from different companies and found these to be the best for the money. It is a well-made plier and worked perfectly on forming several tight bends! Eastwood…please continue to provide quality tools at affordable prices to the auto enthusiast!
  • better than autozone tools...
    I'm running all new lines on my truck. I have one of the autozone tubing benders and it works really well but you cant make small, tight bends with it. I found these pliers on ebay for $15 so I thought I would try them out. I think the edge needs to be rounded all the way out to avoid kinking a line but it still beats wrapping the line around a socket to get a tight bend
  • Good tool
    Perfect for 3/16 size: no marks, fast and easy.
    A little bit more hard with 1/4 pipe, but it work well.
  • Nifty, Easy to Use
    Often as I make brake lines for race cars, I need a tight bend without crimping the line. I used many tools and methods to do this usually wasting a lot of time. This line pliers does the job easily. Now it is not a problem to make a tight bend close the fitting and get the line run just right. A must have tool for working with brake lines.
  • brake line tool
    I' m restoring a71 Olds Cutlass from ground up and this tool makes it easier to bend brake lines and all other lines.Thank you eastwood
  • brake line tool
    great addition to my tool box works well.
  • When in a tight corner, bend your way out!
    There is no subsitute for a quality bender but with the Eastwood brake pliers, tight bends in a narrow confine are very easy. There is absolutely no way you can make a brake line fit a closely in a tight place and seem so factory like as with these pliers!
  • JD
    Good tool
    I used this tool along with the Eastwood Steel 3/16 Brake line kit that came with fittings. For the price I thought it was worth a try. I found it very useful. For me it did make an tiny indention on some bends where I didn't do it well, but it never kinked or did anything close to what I would consider an issue. I used it to make a new driver side wheel to proportioning valve line, (2-3 tight 90 degree bends) came out great. I then made some custom hidden lines from the Master down to the frame. These worked great, very pleased with them and the brake line.
  • best price and a must have tool
    the best tool you ever need for doing brake lines
  • a must have tool
    these are great. you just have to use them to under stand how much help they are. these are a must have tool for the tool box
  • Dan
    Great Tool!
    A little bit of practice and you will have great looking brake lines. Easy to use once you get the hang of it.
  • Very nice and they work for alot of jobs
    I use these quite often on nitrous hardlines. Especially for purge solenoids...good stuff, they work in tight areas without removing the part from the work area. Great tool!!
  • Glad I got it!
    Surprisingly, I need to use the brake line pliers within an hour of when they were delivered. The line on my compressor to the cut-off switch had developed a leak, and they were perfect to re-align the tubing so I could get up and running right away. I have used them a couple of times since then working on the brake and clutch lines on my Pontiac Fieros that I'm restoring.
  • Excellent Tool
    I work for a restoration shop in Houston, Tx. I have used these in a professional environment and I have seen professional results. I often find myself fabricating brake lines and these come in quite handy. Bare in mind, these are primarily designed for making slight adjustments and not complete bends. When used for what they're intended, these work great. They are a welcome addition to my tool box.
  • Very good tool for the mechanic that has to get the job done
    I found these pliers to be particularly handy for tight bends and tight working spaces. They are not a manufacturing tool, so to speak, in that you don't insert the tubing and the tool does all the work for you. They provide a bending surface that helps prevent kinks, especially when the bend radius needs to be tighter than ideal for the tube diameter. The jaws of the pliers are sharp enough that they will leave a small ring cut into any coating on the tubing, so "working" a complicated bend will result in tool marks on the tube. All that being said, it is the first bender I reach for when doing brakes.
  • Excellent investment
    These are a God-send. So much easier to use than traditional bending tools and so much more versatile.
