      Just buy flared lines from NAPA and replace all way? One afternoon of work. If you need fix fast just call taxi. Why would someone bother with this? Plus no way compression fitting would go at my brake lines.

      When using this type of union is it not necessary to use the tool to make a relief at its end?

      My mechanic used compression fittings for my brake line repair. The other day, I almost had an accident and had to slam my brakes. My brakes blew. Don't use compression fittings on brakes. They will fail in these types of situations.

      Compression fittings yes do fail for the inexperienced mechanic performing the repair due to the fact they have to be tightened to the correct torque which is hard to predict for the inexperienced person performane the repair

      Let me rephrase my comment from a couple minutes ago...when a mechanic posts, "Cause he’s a rookie slow motion Typically a Jamaican a black American" you can assume that he's an asshole, doesn't care about others and shouldn't be working on your car.

      All good procedure except DON'T use common compression fittings. I haven't read all the comments but I'm sure the consensus by all real mechanics, automotive engineers and Automotive manufacturers is that flare fittings are right, compies are wrong.
      My 2 cents worth as a mechanical engineer and rust car owner. Also a rock and ice climber...so i know about keeping risk out.

      No Just the alcohol without ABS thanks to hold a lot longer with compression fittings haven’t seen one blowout yet even on ABS brakes are the people did just that some people just don’t know how to snuggle them and tighten them just the right amount that’s why they’re dangerous due to inexperience people installing them

      I love all the know it alls saying those are illegal. Uh no they are not. Google it look it up on auto zone website. The same fitting he is using is on there as a brake line compression fitting. If illegal pretty sure they couldn't advertise it for brake lines. Fucking idiots I've used these for 15 years and never had one fail, next they'll say you can't bleed brakes by just cracking line loose you have to use the 20 year old bleeder.

      I've always wondered why the hell brake lines are not factory standard stainless steel? Considering the safety issue here, I would think this would just be common sense. I lost a brake line once while driving almost smashed the the guy in front of me, scared the crap out of me.

      Allen Yates In reply to Allen Yates

      Its a comment to a video that i didnt make. Not once did i say thats what i would do. If it was mine I would replace the whole line. Its not hard to replace the whole line then you dont have to worry about either kind of fitting not sealing or having a defect..but again im sure you will miss the point again as you have no common sense.. and to be able to debate something you have to use facts and reason like for instance useing compression fitting is not illegal everywhere, dont take my word for it look into it for yourself you might learn something ,But thank you for the useless banter ,and if were getting into my political views i am a conservative...

      I fully understand the pressure differences between the front and rear. You speak of common sense?? It is obvious you have none. I won't waste my time debating with you anymore. You have made up your mind, probably a liberal mind which effects all your judgments. . Compression fittings are ILLEGAL to use on brake systems, PERIOD! Wonder why that is?? Why not put some tape on it like another suggested?? Is your life worth that $2 dollar fitting?? Go ahead, enjoy.

      Allen Yates In reply to Allen Yates

      You should look at what i wrote and also look into how they engineered those things with the abs modular the the master cylinder rhe rear brakes are a low pressure and only produce 30 to 40% of the cars stoping power the front tho is completely diffrent it has more clamping force and provides 60 to 75% of stoping force more force higher pressure and thus is why you should never use compression fitting on front lines....and it is also true to not open your mouth if you have the chance to look stupid if you want to learn anything else let me know we might be able to get you to use some common sense as well...maybe

      Sorry dude, As a mechanic for over 45 years I suggest you read this:
      A compression fitting may work but it is not legal and can't handle the high brake fluid pressures within that can occur under a panic stop. The proper way is to DOUBLE FLARE each end of the pipe and mate them with a union. Safe, legal and the only way to do it. PERIOD. But fix them the way you want. Hope you don't get somebody killed since you won't be driving that car. WATCH THIS GUYS 9 MINUTE VIDEO AND LEARN.

      Honestly, the guy in the video seems like a good guy so people want to come to his defense I guess. The fact that a compression fitting was used at some point and is "still working" doesnt make it right or legal. Brakes hold pressure and if you need to SLAM your brakes on thats when they will probably fail because the compression fittings cant take the pressure. If you dont think thats true, read the package on compression fitting packaging and it says do not use on brake lines. So believe what you want and I know there are many people doing this but it isnt safe. Do some research before you attack this comment but then dont let facts stand in the way of a good argument. People are only pointing out its wrong to save someone from being hurt. The rest of the video was great.

      Arty's Garage I've been the lead tech in an auto body shop for a few decades. We also specialized in salvage rebuilds, licensed by the state.
      Every time we had totalled car come in we took a good look all around and under it. The majority of the worst ones, where there were stains from blood and guts on the dash, steering column and seat, almost all had brake jobs done with these awful compression fittings.
      You have not had any complaints, because your customers are likely dead. The dead don't call customer service.
      I've also been hired as an expert in court cases for major car accidents on behalf of insurance companies. If the car that caused the accident had compression fittings on the brake lines, all insurance claims were denied. In some of those cases, the person at fault was charged with manslaughter.
      If you have a legitimate shop, your insurance carrier will drop you if they know you are doing this.
      A spool of brake line 20 feet or better costs less than $30, a basic yet effective double flaring tool can be had for the same cost or less. There are lots of sources for learning how to use those tools correctly too.
      There is ZERO excuse to continue this deadly practice! Just because you haven't seen one fail means nothing.
      Compression fittings are designed to handle WATER at an average pressure of 30-50 pounds, max pressure of 150 pounds.
      A car that uses BRAKE FLUID, aka hydraulic fluid, has a normal pressure on a gradual stop of about 1500 pounds, and a panic stop will easily see 5000 pounds of pressure.
      No excuses for this!
