KENOSHA, Wis. (March 18, 2014) — Snap-on Tools, a subsidiary of Snap-on Inc., has launched the Snap-on Parking Brake Tool (BT20) for working on rear parking brake springs of Toyota vehicles.
According to Snap-on, repairing the parking brake on Toyota vehicles requires a smaller brake spring tool with more reach. Removing and installing the brake shoes can be difficult because technicians have to turn a small shoe hold-down spring cup in an area with limited access.
The new tool features a special tip designed to engage the shoe hold-down spring cup so the brake job can be completed accurately. It is compatible with model year 2000 and newer Tacoma, Tundra, FJ Cruiser, 4Runner, Land Cruiser and Camry vehicles, Snap-on said.
“In the automotive service and repair business, time is money,” said Scott Amundson, product manager for Snap-on. “We work very closely with our customers to provide them with tools that help increase productivity and profitability. The time saved by using the BT20 on Toyota vehicles can be put toward completing another job in the service bay.”
