    Neat, but how does this work? Is there a cap or something?

    ^^ just like a normal bleeder. Seals at the conical when seated. When unseated fluid can only go one way because of the check valve. You loosen the bleeder, jump in and pump the brakes. Jump out and tighten it down. Done

    I just use a piece of clear tygon tube and an empty clear plastic bottle with a hole in the lid. Put a little brake fluid in the bottom to cover the tube. Place it in a concrete block or what ever to keep it standing up. Open the bleeder and pump the brake pedal a couple times to the floor. No mess. Great to recycle the fluid if your doing a complete over haul of the system. Otherwise I just keep the old crap fluid to loosen rusted bolts and nuts.
