Description Specifications
Craftsman Adjusting Brake Tool Makes Brake Work Less Stressful When working on drum brakes, add the adjusting brake tool from Craftsman to the tool must-have checklist. DIY automotive maintenance is easier when you have the right tools for the job. Working on rear drum brakes often means relying on a brake adjusting tool before the drums can be pulled free for maintenance. This Craftsman adjusting brake tool features an offset head that will fit most drum brakes, allowing you to adjust the clearance between the brake drum and the brake shoe. If the drum is rusted to the wheel hub, it may be best to consult a trusted mechanic. The Craftsman adjusting brake tool works great for automotive brake jobs and also for brake adjustments on a mountain bike or other bicycle with disc brakes. It's usually better to use an adjusting brake tool versus a screwdriver for this type of work. This tool's offset head allows for an easy fit when tackling almost any adjustment job.

Craftsman Adjusting Brake Tool

When you are adjusting the drum brakes on your old car, these tools are the best at performing that job! Yes, a slotted screwdriver can get in there on some model cars, but for some others you really need the curved tips!

Great Tool


This is a very useful tool for rear drum brakes. In the past I would use needle nose pliers and picks to try to remove and install the springs. It it excellent for removing and installing those brake springs. Glad I got it.
