FWIW...I had a Princess Auto brake pump and it broke after the first time using it. I don't think the seals were meant for brake fluid.

I'm now using one of these. Works okay but a little slow. You need to get used to putting grease around the nipple and screw to false stop air leaks.

If you need the bleeder kit for a different purpose than brake bleeding or need it to do multiple cars at work, ignore my post.

I suggest upgrading your bleeders to speed bleeders. $7 a pop, but you'll never have to worry about your old bleeders breaking, or bleeder kits for that matter.
