Braid Spreader for -3 and -4 Teflon Hose Product Description:
In order to insert the "olive" into Speed-Flex Hose, the stainless protective braid must be separated from the teflon liner. This can be more difficult than it sounds. JBRC's spreader solves the problem and eliminates the tiresome probability of poking holes in your fingers. In use, the tool is simply inserted into the cut end of the hose, and pushed spreading the braid. The olive is then placed on the tool mandrel, pushed over the hose liner and under the braid until the liner bottoms against the shoulder of the olive. The tool mandrel is double ended, one for the -3 hose and one for the -4. The handle contains a recess for storage of spare olives.
