If you read some of the broken tool reviews here you will come away with the impression that this tool is cheaply made. It's not at all a cheaply made tool. If the retaining ring is stuck from retaining pressure the only way to remove it will be penetrating oil or heat after the pinching or squeeze retained force is removed from the assembly.

I grew up in my dads shop and the most common airborne tool was the retaining ring pliers. Yes, when used improperly with strong hands they all break no matter what brand or how expensive the tool is. The reason I say airborne is because I will never forget a mechanic that worked for my dad threw the freshly broken retaining ring pliers across the shop and stuck into the drywall. They all had a good laugh and left them in the wall for quite a while.

The normal common wear item on retaining ring pliers are the tips. The non replaceable tip pliers we have at work are Matco and Snap-On but getting warranty on these items because of normal wear is getting harder to do. I even walked into the $nap-On distributer warehouse in Nevada and tried to get a worn tool replaced and they said sorry, no can do. That's one of the reasons why I'm always looking for decent well made tools without the $nap-On price..

I went to Home Depot as my regular snap ring pliers were too big to go in my locking hubs, i was looking at needle nose pliers, but found this channellock one for 20, which is VERY expensive, but since i always have to be taking my snap rings off, i figured this would be a good investment. When i got home, it is SO easy to use, the switch mechnaism is great, you can make it close or open by using the same action.The tips are interchangable, and it comes with 5 pairs of different size tips in different metals, it even comes with the allen wrench to change them in. All the tips are skinny and should fit into tight spaces, provided the space isnt too deep, say and inch. Some of the tips are even angled at 90 degrees, and the handle is very comfy, not a detail is missed. This tool is top of the line and a great investment, FOR THOSE who say that the switch mechanism is junk, they probably threw their tools around, and dont know how to take care of em, i say this is a great tool and i highly recommend it.

Sears sells this tool rebranded as Craftsman so you might want to consider getting it there for the lifetime warranty BUT the grips are a lot nicer on the Channellock's IMO; the Craftsman grips feel somewhat mushy plus they twist to an extent when you squeeze the handles. If you are working in very narrow spaces this probably isn't the best tool for the job as it's rather large, but nonetheless they feel/look well-made and comes with a variety of tips (including right-angle) which is cool. There seems to be some concern about the longevity of the switching mechanism...I took these apart to see how they work and everything is solid/simple. As long as you squeeze gently when switching-over from internal to external (or vice-versa) then these should last a long time. Smartly designed, well-made tool.

I didn't know what to expect, but I decided to spend a few extra bucks and buy American, since Channellock is a respected brand in pliers.

I'm happy to report that the tool, using one of the larger silver-colored tips, was strong enough to compress and remove a retaining ring for a wheel bearing in my car. That ring sits inside a 2.9-inch bore and is rather thick. The tips did not bend, and the plier felt nice and sturdy. I used it again to put the same snap ring back into the bore, and again it did the job admirably.

I liked that the company included a nice little allen wrench for the set screws holding the tips, as well as a couple extra set screws. Tips and spares came in a nice plastic pouch.

It's a good idea to exercise care when switching between internal and external modes of operation. Sounds like some people had a problem with the mechanism. I think, with care, it should last just fine.

One of the best snap-ring pliers out there and without a doubt the best for the money. When you need to pull an inside retaining ring cheap pliers just don't work and I don't use these enough to spend 40-60 dollars on a German tool. The channel lock seemed like he best compromise between quality and price and I was well pleased with how well these worked and the overall level of quality. There's no need to buy two tools or six because with a flick of a switch these can be inside or outside snap-ring pliers. Having replaceable pins is also a big plus, the tool comes with several sizes and angles of pins and the replacement pins aren't expensive. The only bad thing about the tool is that when you're pulling out a small internal snap-ring there's some flex in the tool causing it to not close fully by about 1/32". This caused me not to be able to pull a small snap-ring but I was able to fix the issue by filing the stops in the back of the tool to compensate for this flex and that fixed the problem. Now under pressure the pliers fully close. That's something that the engineers who designed this tool should have foreseen.
