Review on πŸ”’ Lisle 22850 - Ultimate Hose Pincher for Efficient and Secure Sealing by Joseph Long

Revainrating 2 out of 5

Absolute plastic scrap

So cheap. Made of plastic, does not squeeze the brake lines as stated. Possibly suitable for small overhead lines such as PVC lines. With Herculean strength I was able to tighten them just enough to create enough grip in the lines for my tests. Unfortunately I couldn't unlock the mechanism because it was so bent on the inside. I unscrewed the wing nut to no avail. Tech support was good, but by the time I finally got a call back from tech support I had already figured out how to unlock it with my channel locks to bend the mechanism (also a plastic mechanism that looks like metal) as a last resort. I also think that my lines were damaged in the process. I will never buy a Lisle product again as this is my first and last experience with Lisle.
