Thank you for your purchase from etrailer!

The flexible brake lines you selected, Titan # T0777300 and # T0776500, are not designed for cutting. These are offered in the various lengths to allow you to avoid that need and these flex lines are also intended for use near the brake assemblies where their flexibility allows them to handle the motion of the trailer suspension.

If you purchased elsewhere a brake kit with rigid steel lines you will need a flaring tool (which we do not offer) that you should be able to find at your local auto parts store.
