    Just FYI . . .
    I prefer reverse bleeding as I feel it works better and faster, especially regarding air bubbles.
    These do not work. Besides, manual tightening is not difficult and more positive IMHO.

    I think he means they will not work for reverse bleeding

    I dunno...maybe for a contortionist! I’m not as flexible as I used to be.

    Manual bleeding, to me, is like playing twister: Left hand brake, right hand wrench.
