Frequently Asked Questions

Are your hoses D.O.T. Certified?
Absolutely! we have been approved and given a registration number by the D.O.T.
All brake hoses manufactured with the equipment we use and the components meet or
exceed D.O.T FMVSS106 and SAE J1401 standards. Our hoses meet all International
Safety Standards and have all the proper labeling on the hoses to pass Vehicle Inspections
in any State or Country. 


Why should I care if the hoses are D.O.T approved?
When a hose has D.O.T. certification it means that the Equipment, Parts and Process all

met the requirements to make a safe hose. Unfortunately there are people selling counterfeit

brake hoses to the public that have not been D.O.T. approved which makes them illegal to

use in the USA. Are you risking your Life and Vehicle with cheap hoses???


How are the hoses identified as being D.O.T Certified?
All the hoses we make must have our D.O.T. number crimped into the fitting when made.
The hoses are also D.O.T. labeled and date coded per regulations.

So at any time, no matter where our hoses go, they can be traced back to us.

Do you offer any kind of a warranty on your hoses?
We have a two year warranty that covers the fittings and crimp for leakage on our

Rubber and Braided Stainless Hoses from the date of purchase. The warranty does
not cover hoses because of improper installation that results in hose rubbing or stretch failure.

If I have a problem with a brake hose what do I need to do?
All you need to do is contact us by email or phone and we will give you the information

where to send the defective hose. Once it arrives we first make sure it is our hose by the D.O.T.
number in the crimp area. It will then be examined and we will contact you on what conclusion

we came to and what we can do resolve the problem.

Why do you have to have the PVC Cover on the hoses?
 A few years back the D.O.T. determined that the Braided Stainless Hoses used for Street use
needed to have a coating to protect the hose. It was found that dirt particles were working through
the uncovered braid and getting down to the Teflon inner tube. Then as the hoses moved it acted
like sand paper and wore away the inner tube causing failure. Uncovered hoses are still being sold
but they are suppose to be labeled for "OFF ROAD USE ONLY" when sold.

What is a Whip Insert?
The Whip Insert is placed on the end of the Braided Stainless Hose before we slide the fitting onto

the end prior to crimping. The Insert is made with a special aluminum that is a buffer between the stainless hose and steel fitting. This is required to prevent premature hose wear if there is any side
movement (Whip) as the hose is used, being a softer material it buffers some of the motion. If you have
steel on steel the hose would wear out prematurely. There is actually a D.O.T "Whip Test" that our
process and hoses had to pass before we were allowed to make Street Legal Braided Stainless Hoses.

 

What about liability?

We carry a $5 Million product liability policy that we must have in order to make and sell brake hoses.
 

Do you test your hoses?
All hoses are pressure tested to 3000 psi, twice the maximum operating pressure of any normal vehicle.

Do you make Custom hoses?
Yes, we can make almost any configuration you need to make your Custom or Rod look great.
No need in having a hose that is to long or to short, or a bunch of hodgepodge adapters to make it fit. 

Normally how long does a brake hose last?
The average life expectancy of a brake hose is about six years once it is put into service.

Do you make Rubber Brake Hoses?
Yes, We can make any hose in either Rubber or Braided Stainless Steel.
