One tool, four uses!

"I purchased these snap ring pliers a while back thinking to myself that I'd probably never use the other heads. Well I was completely wrong. When you need to get an "E" clip from out behind a window crank handle, the straight nose head is absolutely worthless. But with this set just like magic, I install the 90° head and ta-da! That "E" clip was off!
Cheaper and much higher quality then the ones down at the auto parts place!"

Great Product & Great Price

"This is a great litte tool for the money. I'd been using a pair that would remove both external and internal snap rings with buttons on the middle of it and it would always slip. The tips change very easily on this set and don't slip while removing the snap-ring. Just wish it had a case for it."

"Vice-grip produces excellent products with the user in mind.
The pliers are sturdy, and function exactly as they should and are available at a reasonable cost.
They are a good investment for easy removal and installation of snap rings

Vice Grip snap ring pliers

,
January 14, 2008
By Cush
from Lewisville Texas
"It doesn't get any better Vice Grip quality at a price reasonable enough to purchase an individual set for each of the four ends. I struggled for years with dime store quality snap ring tools. Purchase these and save lots of time and frustration as well as skinned fingers and lost or broken snap rings."
