EMERGENCY USE ONLY!!!
Ever been on a trail or water crossing and had a branch or rock smash a brake hard line or literally have the brake hose ripped in half? I've had the displeasure of dealing with it twice in 35 years; once used a pair of vice grips to clamp the hose closed and once twisting the hard-line into a curl to get it to close.
Dealing with this in the middle of nowhere can be frustrating and confusing if you aren't sure about how to get back home with brakes. But you can eliminate one of the brake circuits by blocking the line if the hose/tube gets severed. You will still need brake fluid but at least it'll get you off the trail and to a solid repair.
This TEMPORARY EMERGENCY ONLY fix will only work on M10 x 1.0 inverted flare fittings soooo Toyota. All Toyotas. This little fitting is used to plug a damaged hose or line. This plug is a solid plug. No flow in or out. The fitting is properly designed to use on female or male inverted fittings.
This fitting is CNC machined and anodized with a yellow warning disc. This warning disc is a reminder that this is NOT a permanent solution but a TEMPORARY EMERGENCY ONLY fix. The areas of the fitting that are not anodized (raw aluminum) are the surface areas that come into direct contact with the inverted flares. Because of the hardness of the anodize layer, the anodize was removed from the flare contact points in order to guarantee proper contact. This contact is done following Toyota's inverted flare angles of of 45deg and 42 deg at the critical mating edge. Unlike an AN fitting, you don't want inverted flare fittings to be perfectly angular match. There must be an angular offset to guarantee a proper contact patch to avoid leaking.
Fits all Toyota trucks.

It’s an awesome product that I will always carry in the truck, but wish I never have to use.
