Spidertrax Double Flare Kit for Brake Lines

Spidertrax Disc Brake Double Flares

Picture of Kit

This is a basic flaring kit. Just the cost of this kit alone will justify buying the complete  Brake Line kit from Spidertrax.  If you already have this tool flaring is a breeze. Remove the rear brake line. This is the drivers side. Make sure to capture the fluid for proper disposal.  Using a tubing cutter remove the end of the tube that went into the wheel cylinder. Save the nut for reuse.

Cut

You have done it now!

How many times have you flared a line only to realize... I forgot to out the nut back on <:-( This is a very important step. This is the first part of the double flare. In the kit you will find the little button looking tool. This puts the tube in the correct position. Align the tube in the block so it is level with the lip on the button tool.

It is on the block

Almost done

Oil the heck out of the tube and the end of the flaring tool button. Put the block in the vise and tighten away. Remove the button, oil and repeat. Inspect for cracks and admire your work!

Quick put it in for a test.
