I saw ones from Autozone for just under $10. NAPA has one for $20. Does anyone know if the cheaper ones work well or should I go with NAPA. I don't mind paying a little more for something that works better. I'm working on my dad's TO20. Thanks to anyone who can give their 2 cents.

There is a difference in size and quality. I would go with the larger, heavy duty one.

I use the cheapest possible.....A piece of baler twine! Make a long loop of twine, hook the top of the spring into the brake shoe and then with your loop of twine through the bottom of the spring, place your foot in the twine loop and stretch the spring. A pair of ordinary pliers will help guide it into the bottom shoe.

I bought a cheap set once and they slipped and the handles actually crossed over each other backwards catching my fingers in between the handles that had crossed over each other. Very painful and I took those back and got my money back and actually bought a good quality used pair at the flea market. They have been good pliers.
