had 2 rear brake cylinders to change last week so i thought i would buy a new brake hose clamp. i found this one in halfords pretty cheap so i gave it a go. all the laser products i have used so far have been very good for the price.
at first i thought, no way is that 'cheapy' looking thing going to be able to clamp a brake hose but i was wrong. very very simple to operate and works very well. for the price it is an excellent product, why spend more than you need to. simple but effective.
I recommend this product!
I like:very easy to use, strong clamping action, cheap

bought this socket set a few weeks ago and have used it to do some front wheel bearings on a few cars.
first of all, the quality is superb just like the rest of the pro range of tools.
i have a 1 metre long breaker bar that i use when doing front hub nuts as the one that comes with this set is no where near long enough to get the leverage. when your dealing with 3/4 sockets generally bolts are going to be very tight so a bigger breaker bar would have seen this kit better off. the sockets also come in handy when looking for something the same size as a wheel bearing for pressing it in.
definetly worth spending the money on but do bear in mind you may need to buy a bigger breaker bar
I recommend this product!
I like:quality, range of sockets
I don't like as much:breaker bar needs to be longer

these are the same to adaptors that come in the 1/4" and 3/8" socket set that retails at £99.99, they are certainly built to last. i have been using these regularly now for over a year and so far so good. these will only snap or twist if you put an enormous amount of torque on them which in my eyes is not what they are designed for, use a bigger drive size!

yes it does work in both directions, the head comes apart and you simply switch it around and put it pack in. takes 2 secs to reverse
