Snap-on releases Toyota parking brake tool

The new Snap-on Parking Brake Tool (BT20) saves at least 20 minutes on average when working on rear parking brake springs on many Toyota vehicles, according to the company.

“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.”

Repairing the parking brake on Toyota vehicles requires a smaller brake spring tool with more reach.  Removing and installing the brake shoes can be a difficult task because technicians need to turn a small shoe hold down spring cup in an area with limited access. The new Snap-on Parking Brake Tool (BT20) features a special tip designed to engage the shoe hold-down spring cup so the brake job can be completed accurately and efficiently on model year 2000 and newer Tacoma, Tundra, FJ Cruiser, 4Runner, Land Cruiser and Camry vehicles.
