The 72485 allows the technician to quickly and easily fabricate brake, fuel, and transmission line flares in a repair or new install. On-vehicle application and production quality leak-free flares are ensured due to smooth hydraulic operation. Universal application is possible on brake, fuel, and transmission lines, including GM Jify-Tite.


No longer does the technician need to struggle with a manual flaring tool to create leak-free flares. Manual flaring tools can be difficult to use, and the resulting flares could possibly leak. The 72485’s smooth hydraulic operation and the pressure it creates ensures the formation of any flare, on or off the vehicle, according to the company.

Manufacturing specs

The heavy duty construction of the 72485 provides for years of field service. The head of the hydraulic yoke is constructed of zinc-plated steel. The dies are constructed of sintered steel and the adapters are constructed of zinc-plated carbon steel. The 72485 creates 5,000 psi to ensure the creation of production quality leak-free flares.

Storage and display

The 72485 is packaged in a custom molded ABS blow molded case.
