A friend had installed a set of these "Earl's Solo Bleeders" so I thought I'd give them a try. They seemed to work well when we bled the new lines. The theory is that they have a spring loaded end piece that acts like a regular seal when tightened. When you want to bleed the brakes, you loosen them about a half turn and then one person can pump the brake pedal without need for the usual assistance. As usual you push a small hose onto the bleeder and put the other end in a jar to catch the fluid. As you push the brake pedal, old fluid and air bubbles exit the bleeder and as the pedal is released, the spring loaded brass piece seals the bleeder, preventing air from being sucked back in.
