    Cool bleed nipples (Makes bleeding brakes easy)

    Has anyone seen or used these before:



    Introducing SPEED BLEEDER®, the patented bleeder screw with the built-in check valve. It is truly a one-person bleeder screw.

    Once installed, it becomes a permanent part of the brake system.

    When it is time to bleed your brakes, you loosen the Speed Bleeder 1/4 turn and pump your brake pedal. When the pedal is depressed the pressure generated opens the check valve letting air and brake fluid out of the end of the Speed Bleeder. When you release the pedal and it returns to the up position, the check valve closes and prevents any air from reentering the system through the Speed Bleeder. When bubble free fluid is evident you close the Speed Bleeder. In the closed position it works just like your stock bleeder screw and prevents any brake fluid from leaking out.

    It generally takes about 5 pumps to purge each caliper or wheel cylinder. That is all there is to bleeding your brakes. If at a later date you need to bleed your brakes, the patented thread sealing system makes it easy to open the bleeder screw to perform the bleeding operation. It is made of quality materials and it is economical.
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...

    My dad put something similar on his Viva back in the 70's, so it's nothing new.. just rehashing what's gone before

    that was the problem with the old ones - they didn't seal correctly. Luckily we noticed when we fitted them and tried to bleed the system.. they just kept sucking air back in.

    Humm - I love the phrase "lifetime " warranty. It sounds great but really is so vague... phone them and get them to define 'lifetime'. It usually makes a very interesting phone call.

    I'm not in a position comment on the actual product not having used them, but having had experience of something very very similar, I'd be in no rush to chance the OE nips

    Yes, lifetime warranty can usually refer to the lifetime of the actual product, so you buy the product and a week later they stop making/selling it, you have no warranty, its not your lifetime it refers to, its the products.

    Repair Service with a Smile

    Occasionally a customer will break a Speed Bleeder off in the caliper or wheel cylinder of the vehicle that they are working on. I guess they don't know their own strength.

    Well, we understand that these things do happen. Since we don't want the experience of installing Speed Bleeders to be totally devastating we are doing something about it.

    If you do break one off in your wheel cylinder or caliper, it is a tricky operation to remove . Unless you have access to a few specialized tools it is very hard to remove.

    This is what we propose.... Remove the caliper or wheel cylinder and ship it to us. We will remove the broken Speed Bleeder at no charge and return it to you repaired with a new Speed Bleeder installed. Generally it will be repaired the same day we receive it and will be returned the following day. We will return it to you via United States Postal Service. It will be sent "Parcel Post" and we will pay the postage. If you want it returned quicker you pay the postage.
    They are in America but this is the service.
