In order to insert the "olive" into Speed-Flex Hose, the stainless protective braid must be separated from the PTFE liner. This can be more difficult than it sounds. Earl's Braided Hose Spreader solves the problem and lowers the probability of poking holes in your fingers. Simply insert the tool into the cut end of the hose and push, spreading the braid. The olive is then placed on the tool mandrel and pushed over the hose liner under the braid until the liner bottoms against the shoulder of the olive.
