It's a good tool. It gets dings for the directions and lack of storage when not in use.
When using the tool to engage a clip, if too much pressure is applied to push the clip on the tool tip does lever away from the pressure due to a large amount of slop in the way the tip is clipped to the tool.
Also, when stretching a clip prior to placing it on the part, if you stretch it too far the tip will slip sideways and can bend the clip.
The problem in both situations is that there is just too much slop between the toolheads and handle.
I also don't like the lack of a storage box for the tips, I hate having parts for tools strewn all over my toolbox.
Because often this leads to one of the parts getting lost. A tool with multiple parts should come with a storage box
for all the parts so they can live together.
This is a cheap tool and its performance is sub par. I regret buying it.
For really big snap rings get bigger pliers because these are meant for your typical smaller size rings. Would be nice if it came with some kind of storage pouch or container but the plastic packaging works well enough. Overall These are great pliers and very versatile in their design. For the price it is a no brainer unless you plan to use this tool on a daily basis then yes just invest in a good set of dedicated pliers..
Get ready for slipped pins and flying snap rings!
I have primarily used this tool for snap rings used on bike parts. These tend to be quite small (<1 inch across) and have tiny holes. The pins on this tool are too big for such tiny snap rings and I had to grind them down to fit (see photo). I would have scored this tool lower but I think it probably works much better with large snap rings. Steer clear if you are need small stuff or very delicate work. I also included a photo showing a 90 degree bend head that comes included.

DO NOT BUY! The quality of the tool is just cheap. The Snap Ring attachments are loose. I feel that this tool is not meant for heavy duty work. Read morePublished 14 days ago by 916barber
