Anyone know of a way to plug a brake hose temporarily? I have a car that the caliper is leaking fluid in a stream. I need to drive the car across town to a friend's garage to fix it. Too cold to fix it outside.

This is a GM brake hose. It has a banjo bolt through the caliper end.

Pony up for the tow, your going to kill someone. One caliper will work full power and whip you into the other lane. You will die. If you do use the vise grip method then duc tape the handle shut
