Questions & Answers

Do the brake line protectors for the 3/16 stainless steel brake line fit over the fittings or do you need to remove the fittings for proper installation?

There is no point in placing it over fittings.

The number on the stainless steel is what? Does it have any magnetic properties?

TheStopShop advised me that the item is made of stainless steel 302. There is something magnetic about the product I received.

What is the difference between this ss hose protector being polished or bright silver as opposed to dull gray stainless steel?

There is a line protector kit that I purchased that is the same color as the stainless steel line. It's not polished to a mirror-like shine but it's fairly lustrous. The above information may help you a little

Is it possible for it to slip over once the fittings are installed?

Sadly, no. To fit this spring guard over the open line, you need an aperture.

The build of the collator for Ammo Mike
5/5

The project is to make a bullet collator out of it. If it works as well as it has for everyone else who pointed me to this link, I am certain that it will work for me as well. There's a 9mm and a Print 300 blk. A special thanks to Ammo Mike for his outstanding contributions to the reloading community. It is a pleasure to hear from you and may Odin shower his blessings on.

A copper nickel brake line will look good with a strong rock guard
5/5

When I redid my brake lines with the newer copper nickel lines, I decided to keep the factory style rock guard. This product was a perfect fit. Once installed, these run with the rock guard look factory, even if you are using the copper-looking lines, stainless dominates the appearance, so it is a good way to hide the fact that you are using the If you want the material to go all the way across when you install it, you will take the time to compress it. There truly is not much to this spring except that it is long, so as long as you have about 24" or more of run, it is easy enough to compress to allow flaring of its second There may be a question in your mind about why stainless steel is the only option why not copper nickel or regular steel? My suspicion is that it has to do with cost, sales, and functionality. Steel that is usually cheaper may last longer, but it will not last nearly as long as stainless steel. It may not be strong enough to use copper nickel as a rock guard. A stainless steel construction is the most sensible.

My honest review of stainless steel gravel guards
5/5

I am an older car restorer and I also customize offroad trucks, I think they are great. The stainless steel looks awesome, and they are easy to work with and provide protection of the road. If you combine this stainless steel gravel guard with the nickel copper line, it will transform your car into a show car without breaking the bank.

The proof is in the animal! My gas line had been cut under my truck! EEK! He checked under my truck and confirmed that my gas line had been cut! Ouch! The truck was jacked up when I got home to find more droppings on and a hole in the line
5/5

I cut it apart and smurf tubing was inserted and bars were barbed around the connections. The plan didn't work because two weeks later another section was omitted. It might be a strong urge in mice to consume gas.

I eating the power cables like licorice. I put this on the 4th lamp cable, but they sit there, The device was made to keep brake lines from breaking, however, it works very well! BTW, the bunnies have unplugged the lamp from the wall now since the mouse is in rehab.

Nickel is being protected - The copper brake line was superior to the nickel-plated This brake line is made of copper to help it last longer
5/5

The original line had a 180° bend at the front wheel where the rubber hose is mounted that goes over to the caliper on the left side. Even with the tight 180° bend inserted, it was easy to slide to where I wanted it.

This listing has a good description, so I'm glad there was one
5/5

Being transparent, I didn't understand why it had appeared on my vehicle and it was on steel lines that had been installed to my car. It took me some time to understand the importance of coil shaped protectors since my vehicle already had This listing has a good description, so I'm glad there was one. You can find the lyrics to it on the Internet. There will be no issue with it. I'm using it over powder coated lines, not Stainless Steel, which will provide the best protection against gravel pitting since powder coat is not immune to them.

The construction of Nicopp in frame rails and around engines makes running it a lot easier
5/5

In order to replace the brake lines on my 1998 Explorer, I bought both of these products. Furthermore, it provides a rigid framework between the frame rail and the engine, which prevents the line from kinking. In addition to protecting the wheel wells, I found the line to be extremely useful when using the Nicopp in the frame rail and behind and under the engine. Even though it was a bit more expensive, it was well worth it.

This is a product we will buy again the next time we repair something
5/5

The seller of this guard spring is a reliable and excellent company & it is hard to find it on the market They are selling it, which I appreciate. The next time we need to repair something in our shop, we will purchase more. Be sure to place it AFTER flaring the tubing, before putting on the line.
