MaxPro Reverse Brake Bleeder
With the Phoenix MaxPro, one man can bleed the brakes on any vehicle in 10 minutes or less-even if it's a tough ABS job (you won't need a scan tool or special clips). Don't force trapped air down. Push it up and out. The Phoenix MaxPro Reverse Brake Bleeder is a revolutionary tool based on an incredibly obvious concept: Air wants to go up. That's it. Traditional brake bleeding tools and techniques fight this principle. At Phoenix we harness it, so you can quickly remove all the air from the whole braking system. Phoenix Reverse Bleeding is patented and approved by GM, Raybestos, Bendix, and the U.S. Military.
