This is a genius method! I love it. I'll will be making one this week for a Dodge Truck brake job. It has two brake pistons and the C-clamp is always a pain to use due to it slipping off.

That is a good idea. However, watch out for disc brake set ups like the ones on the Ford Taurus Wagon rear. They have screw type pistons. You have to screw them back in. Found out the hard way.
