As Hook'em said, the regular speed bleeders are seven bucks apiece.

I was thinking that the SS maybe worth the extra dough for strength & corrosion resistance.
I read about bleeders shearing off (after a few years of rust). But, these only get a quarter turn to start the flow.

If you bled the system once a year & used a little anti-seize, they probably wouldn't have a chance to corrode.

I'm lax on mine, so maybe this will kick it up a notch.

They have a pre-applied thread sealant to keep air out when opened.

Sealant

I would think this also would help with the seize factor?
