ABN Snap Ring Pliers Set – 5 Pc Interchangeable Jaw Head C Clip Pliers Set – Straight – Very affordable

Haven’t used them yet but they seem like they will work just fine for changing the springs in my scooters clutch.

They’re not the greatest, either. Functional, but a bit fiddly. The slip joint nut that holds the tips on the pliers is a bit loose, so the ends want to move around a bit while you are compressing the pliers handle. Makes removing a snap ring situated in a difficult place a bit complicated. Yes, they are fairly well-made, but the engineering is a bit hokey. But, considering the price they are a good deal, especially if you are just a part-time or weekend mechanic. Professionals would buy snap on or erwin or something intended for industrial use. The price was fair, the quality was fair.

Pretty flimsy, but very cheap. Work fine for the rare instance when you need to remove and replace ring washers, with a little extra fuss. Harbor freight probably a better option.

Great set for the money- it can compress or expand snap rings and has multiple tip styles. Extremely versatile, although it’s not intended for very large snap rings that require a large tool with more leverage. This will work for 90% of the snap rings you’ll find in automobiles. I just used it on a fuel pump retainer ring and that was somewhat pushing my luck- i was worried the small pins on the tips of the tool might not survive, but they did. Great addition and a ‘must have’ for anyone who works on automobiles.

These do the job, but they are certainly not perfect. Other reviews note that the tips tend to slip out. You must secure the tip in place with the silver metal clip. It goes in straight, then you twist the back end to hold it in place. If you do it right, the tips won’t pop out all the time. If you don’t get that spring-loaded clip in place, they fall apart easily. Where you place the tips determine if the pliers open a ring or close it. Easy enough to figure out if you take a few minutes to tinker with it. I do wish they opened a bit wider. I had a hard time getting a couple rings loose because the pliers just didn’t open wide enough.

These were a perfect solution for a metal ring holding down a car antenna. Fine needle-nose pliers could have worked, but with these snap ring pliers, there was more control, less chance of slippage and marring the paint — that sort of concern. To get the ring off, i quickly saw how to change plier heads and attached the 90-degree one (included). With that, it was easy to keep the plier tips engaged and to remove the ring, then put it back when done swapping the antenna.
