9-inch Hydraulic Wheel Cylinder
The 9-inch Hydraulic Wheel Cylinders is controls and converts non-hydraulic pressure into hydraulic pressure. AL-KO-style 9-inch hydraulic backing plates feature a dual wheel cylinder, meaning they have two pistons to complete this function.
Wheel cylinders have a bleed nipple located at the top of the cylinder. When bleeding your hydraulic brake system, air rises to the top of the cylinder and is therein released. Couplemate™ recommends attaching a clear tube to the nipple to return fluid to the bottle when bleeding.

How Do Hydraulic Brakes Work?
The principle on which a hydraulic brake system works is simple. Force applied at one point is transmitted to another location via an incompressible fluid, called the brake fluid. Suitable for 9-inch hydraulic back-plates, this cylinder converts your foot-pedal force into hydraulic pressure that forces the brake fluid into the calipers. Subsequently, this pressure forces the brake pads to clamp the rotor and the slow down the vehicle.
