Braid Spreader for -3 and -4 Hose
Dash3 & Dash4 braid spreader. In order to insert the “olive” into TFE hose, the stainless protective braid must be separated from the Teflon liner. This can be achieved with a small screwdriver but is easier with a specialist tool. The braid spreader solves the problem and reduces the likelihood of the stainless braid ends injuring your fingers. In use the tool is simply inserted into the cut end of the hose and pushed—spreading the braid. The olive is then placed on the tool mandrel, pushed over the hose liner and under the braid until the liner bottoms against the shoulder of the olive. The tool mandrel is double-ended—one for -3 hose and one for -4. The handle contains a recess for the storage of spare olives.
