Rated 3 out of 5 by stevenp does the job but can see many ways to improve
It has its specific purpose but it hums up very often requires constant cleaning. if it was made into a sealed unit with a flex head locking tool it would be perfected. but overall good tool and get the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dollman0 Great Brake tool for the Professional
Some of the guys laugh at me when I get a new specialty tool off the Matco Truck, but this one is awesome! You need to use a blow gun to get the grease out of the ratchet when you are done, it gets gummed up. Otherwise, this tool set makes easy work of adjusting the square drive slack adjusters, the release tool stays in place to free up your hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Prybar9821 Easy to use
Tools are easy to identify, which makes for a seemless adjustment on the slack adjuster. You don't have to fumble with a screwdriver and box end wrench. The fork pawl tool holds in place which makes life a little easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Craig Great idea
Nice and easy operation. Ratchet could use a upgrade. I have had a few replaced over the years because of the ratchet skipping. You have to keep the grear cleaned, should be sealed to keep the grease out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cpost562 Makes my job much easier
The tool is great for the slack adjusters with the 5/16 square adjuster and is much easier than using a screw driver to open the release pin

Rated 4 out of 5 by thunder87m A must have
Great tool for the purpose. Price is high for a tool that only has one use and rarely gets uesd.
