Are these safe to use on an anti lock brake system? Says rated to 300 PSI

You need to flair the ends. A double flare is common and easy to do.

Thanks gr, I did buy some nickel copper tubing and flare nuts as well as inverted flare fittings. https://www.autozone.com/brakes-and-traction-control/brake-line-fitting/p/brakelines-brake-system-adapter-blu-4c/845016_0_0?searchText=brake line fittings

This will be my first attempt at flaring brake lines. Rented the flaring tool from Autozone. I was just kinda wondering if those fittings work.

They don't give the NiCopp away. :eek: https://www.autozone.com/brakes-and...73307_0_0?searchText=CNC-425&redirectUrl=true

If you feel you must use a compression fitting, there are steel and stainless-steel one that will handle 4000psi, and more. Those kind would work fine.

I posted once more right before you did. :)

I ended up replacing the entire line using NiCopper.
