If you press the brake pedal down and hold it down (I use a jack stand pressed against the seat) it blocks and brake fluid coming from out of the master cylinder and draining out of the lines. The majority of the fluid in the lines will stay similar to the way liquid stays in a straw when you hold your finger over the end. The first time I opened my brake lines I didn't do this and it was a terrible mess. On subsequent times, it worked like a champ :0

Edit: this way, you can just disconnect the caliper from the hard line and not have to fiddle with the brake hoses at all.

Cool videos BTW!
