The ABN Brake Caliper reset tool is a MUST HAVE for anyone who wants to do their own brakes. You have to reset the Piston in the Caliper to get it over the new pads and rotors. There are other ways to do this, however this tool makes the job super simple! There are adapter plates for every type of manufacture so this will handle anything! A must have for do-it-yourselfers!
Here is a better description about this tool!

This is an easy to use tool set and the price was right. I highly recommend purchasing it if you need the special size for your vehicle's brakes.

As adveetised. This is a great tool. Great price too. But the case is cheap. The clip that keeps the case closed is already broken after one use. Using a large elastic band to keep it closed.
almost the same exact set as matco's

everything about this set is exactly the same as the Matco set, exept the case is red with no logo on it.(perfect spot to put my name)
No complaints, but one suggestion

Does what it needs to do. Seems well machined and the case is good enough. Perfect for shadetree mechanics but not professional grade. My issue is I couldn't actually fit it into my contracted brake. My pads were well worn, but not squealing yet. The distance required for adapter, the tools' spanner, another flange on the tool plus the rectangular bearing plate was too long - by about 1/8". This is possibly caused by the 'Z' adapter being thicker than the rest - for no apparent reason. I don't think there is anything special about my caliper causing this length problem. After thinking about it long enough, I took a larger washer and cut out a section (making it C shaped) so I could slide it in, in place of the rectangular plate. That allowed me to fully engage the drive pins first, saving me the 1/8 inch I needed and allowing enough space to get the washer in. So, it should come with slots in the plates for this (likely common) problem.
Must have item, no instructions for use, broke roll pin (fixed it easily with more robust pin) due my learning curve.

Roll pins are weak points, but rest of tool is very well made and once figured it out believe will last forever. Not big deal just be prepared to mess around with it if one should break. Certainly was a value and DIY brake job saved hundreds of dollars on my 2006 VW. Needed caliper 12 point socket to remove bracket, but well worth it and is a clear example of having right tools makes a job a breeze.
very good tool for the price.

If you own several different vehicles and service your own brakes this is a sturdy and well made kit that is easy to use on the right and left side of the vehicle . The case isn't bad either to keep things organized.

It works awesome. However, it would have been really nice, if in the box it gave instructions and mentioned that you MUST have an open ended wrench to back it off and remove the tool. More a rookie mistake than anything else, but yeah, I would have loved a instruction set that said you need a 22mm or whatever it is to back the tool off.
For twist in works great.

I just used this set on a 2010 Chrysler Town and Country for the rear calipers. Set worked perfectly. The only thing I'm not sure about is how to get the pin out to use it to compress a push in type caliper. For twist in works great.
