Drum brake spring tool. I know what the 2 parts are for on the bottom but what I would like to know is what the top end is for?

The curved piece with an opposite side (like scissors) but I can't find what that is used for does anyone know?


Reattaching springs. You can attach a spring to the post on the break and hook the other end onto the tool. Then spread it out, slide it over the other post and let go.

The hook is for gripping the spring and the finger is to hold pryinig pressure as you stretch the spring.


The tool is to attach the bottom spring. You can figure it out when you install the bottom spring.
