REALLY. DO. NOT. BUY. THIS. ITEM
What you will need to know is the particular order that is best for your vehicle. Normally its Rear Left, Rear Right, Front Left, Front Right. You will also benefit by having a Brake Pedal Jack and depressing the pedal all the way to the floor during the whole operation and releasing on completion.
My only issue with this device is the size of the bottle...rather small for bleeding a car system. I emptied it several times...messy!!
You could also buy Sealey VS020 and modify the compressor fitting so that you can attach a vacuum cleaner...a few people on Youtube have used vacuum cleaners to draw fluid out and once you understand the principle of how the bleed kit works its pretty simple to find household things to use.
The tool itself is well made in heavy, well painted, die cast metal with brass fittings. The vacuum gauge is large, clearly marked in inches and centimetres of mercury, and protected by a rubber shroud. Quite impressive and solid quality for the money.
The pump worked as expected and for the price of half an hour of a mechanic's time I was able to test the actuators on the turbo, vacuum valves, and EGR valve of my Skoda TDI.
A bargain really. It has paid for itself in one use - anything more would be a bonus. In the box is a 120ml container for fluids, two 18" lengths of clear plastic tubing and a dozen plastic connectors. If you are planning to use it to bleed brakes you will need to empty the container at least once on each wheel. The option is there though.
The kit lacks a tee piece connector that would have been useful to "listen in" to the vacuum running in a tube whilst the engine was running. In addition the plastic pipes are too short and stiff to be really useful so I bought a four foot length of rubber automotive vacuum tubing. That done, the kit is perfect. Five stars.
However, there are no instructions, even though the lid of the box has the usual slot for them. A curious omission in an age when, as Douglas Adams pointed out, even tooth picks come with instructions. When used in conjunction with a workshop manual the pump will be self explanatory but cobbling the DIY brake bleeder together clearly deserves more.
A hammer doesn't come with instructions so I suppose it deserves the five stars in spite of this omission.
One concern is the plastic canister which is a bit flimsy. It be be useful to be able to buy spares of these in case it becomes broken by accident.
Having carried out numerous brake bleeding/changes using these methods: two person and pressurised brake reservoir, the Draper Vac tool was the least messy and easiest way by far. One tip: be sure to seal the section of thread between the nipple and brake calliper when it's slackened to ensure vacuum is maintained, otherwise the hand pump will need to be continually pumped.

generally a sturdy bit of kit but really let down by the piston notch connecting the pump handle, it spins around and disconnects from the handle meaning you have to use both hands... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Toby Seed

The pump does pretty much what it claims to, but I found as you approach -70Hg it struggles to increase the vacuum. That said, it got my A/C system up and running. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Mr. J. J. M. Omara

I never thought bleeding brakes could be so easy. This kit is really nicely made and makes bleeding a doddle.Published on 2 May 2013 by Kevin J McGlue
very handy tool it has various uses for my car and motorbikes to cheak for leaks and to activate certian componentsPublished on 25 April 2013 by stephen
Imperfect product: the gasket supposed to seal the little tank doesn't do the job, hence the whole system won't work if used as bought.
