I have this tool and had a tough time flaring good grade aluminum lines. I can't imagine how this could possibly work on a oem hard line.

The problem is the little holder bracket can't hold the line unless you put an ungodly amount of torque on the nuts. Otherwise the flare part of the tool just pushes the line through the holder. I had to a big ass adjustable wrench on the nuts to stop it from slipping
