Hayes Brake Pad and Rotor Alignment Tool

Tired of your disc brakes rubbing? The Hayes Brake Pad and Rotor Alignment Tool is exactly what you need! Two thin leaves of flexible steel insert into the caliper between the rotor and pad, spacing the pads evenly and aligning the caliper with the rotor. To use, simply loosen the caliper bolts, then insert the tool. After tightening down the caliper bolts, removal of the tool will result in evenly-spaced pads and no more brake rub! The two leaves fold into the tool body after use for protection. The body of the tool is made of long-lasting, bead-blasted anodized aluminum.

  • Aligns brake pads and rotors evenly and quickly
  • Easy-to-use, foldable design
  • Compatible with all styles of disc brakes, not just Hayes

    Pros

    • Fast setup of pad spacing the first try
    • Fits between rotor and pads perfectly
    • Versatile

    Cons

    • If you have good eyes and light, you don't need

    Best Uses

    • Fast and easy centering of rotor and caliper
    • Mountain Bikes

    Comments about Hayes Brake Pad and Rotor Alignment Tool:

    Simply slip the feeler gauges between the pads (one on each side of the rotor), hold the brake lever in while evenly tightening the bolts until correct torque is reached. Minor warp in rotor doesn't seem to be a problem with centering.

        Best Uses

        Comments about Hayes Brake Pad and Rotor Alignment Tool:

        I was having difficulty with a brake that rubbed after the standard alignment technique. The steel leafs make for perfect brake alignment ... no rubbing.

        Comments about Hayes Brake Pad and Rotor Alignment Tool:

        This is a pretty nice little tool to add to the collection, especially if you catch it on sale. If your brakes/rotors are newish and/or in good shape, this makes centering them a breeze. However, sometimes on my less than perfect brakes I still need to do it manually with my eye and trial and error. Also, the shims bend pretty easy, but thats no big deal.

        Comments about Hayes Brake Pad and Rotor Alignment Tool:

        Use this inexpensive tool for much less frustration when adjusting brake rotor clearance. Why did I not buy this tool 10 years ago?

          Comments about Hayes Brake Pad and Rotor Alignment Tool:

          Awesome tool.

          I found that once this tool is placed between the pads and rotor to squeeze the brake lever then tighten the caliper screws. Once the screws are tight, release the brake lever and the pads are perfectly aligned.

          Works great in my experience.
