I mistakenly ordered two different sets of split-ring pliers, the first was the Beadalon Beadalon Split Ring Pliers, Classicplier from an outside vendor and worked all last night with them opening tiny little double-rings and getting frustrated. The pliers do open the ring but not nearly as wide as was needed.

Today, received my second set of pliers ordered from Amazon and was AMAZED at the difference between these two similarly priced pliers. This plier, the Xuron 496 Split Ring is awesome. If you look at the photo I submitted you can see why it works so much better. The tip is notched and the split-nose-thingy is wider and more angled.

I tried them out on the little rings I was working with last night and the results were 100% better. This is hands down a better set and the prices are similar.

Now, the disclaimer: I have only used these on tiny to 1/2 inch in diameter rings. I don't think these are made to open the super-thick giant rings you sometimes see.

Many split ring pliers are toys. You get what you pay for. This pair is professional grade. I fish many days a year and have had many pairs of cheap slit ring pliers. I finally bit the bullet and paid for a good set. So glad I did. The Xuron 496 pliers can open even the smallest rings without damage. The sharp nose fits easily in any size split ring and the extended lower jaw holds the ring nicely while you roll it on or off the lure. I'm buying more to use as Christmas gifts for my sons and fishing buddies.

This tool was recommended by "Good Old Boat" as a tool to help with fastening split rings into clevis pins as well as for removing cotter pins out of standing rigging. I can speak from experience that this tool will certainly eliminate broken fingernails and dropped split rings into the drink. Highly recommended.

I've used this "gem" on split ring (key ring) sizes from tiny 5/32" all the way up to 3-3/8" (4mm approx. to 8.5cm approx.) and it handles them all effortlessly.

Not much I can add to what other reviewers have already mentioned. This thing is quality-constructed of black anodized steel and insulated padded handles, it appears to work very well. Other identically-sized electronic-type cutters/pliers I've used remind me of similar construction, like the Xcelite 1178M. This pair of pliers should last me a lifetime, as well. I highly recommend it.

This has been an excellent product for my personal application. I more or less need a tool to split small key rings so that I can thread them through paracord for lanyards. A small, compact, and easy to pivot tool was required, and the Xuron does this perfectly.

The plier heads are big enough to hold up to lighter usage, but small enough to work with rings under 8mm. They are easy to get into position, and easy to use to manipulate the ring however you may need. The spring action of the unit also comes in handy.

So while I cannot speak to other uses, I think you will probably find this is a great light-duty tool for usage with split rings.

The notch on the jaw opposite of the claw cleverly holds onto my tiny 6mm and 8mm split rings so they don't go flying. And the plier effortlessly opens those impossibly tight, flat split rings used for handbag key fobs. If I could do it all over again, all my jewelry tools would be XURON. The extra cost is worth it.

THESE ARE A GREAT SET OF SIMPLE SNAP RING PLYERS. THE SPRING RETURN IS NICE SO YOU DONT HAVE TO HOLD THEM. THEY WILL STAY IN YOUR HAND BY SPRING PRESSURE.
I HAVE BIG HANDS AND THEY WERE JUST FINE.
I USED THEM FROM RING SIZE 2 THRU 10 WITH NO PROBLEMS.
