The tip diameters are approximately 1/8th inch (.125"). The different tips are held in place by 2 large screws, and are very strong. One advantage of this is that a person could make tips of his own for specialty uses.
I like the feature that locks the snap ring in position--too many times I've almost had a snap ring out, only to have it slip off the tool and have to start over again.
However, I gave it 4 stars because the ratchet arm on the lock feature prevents the tool from reaching inside snap rings that are more than 5 or so inches down from the surface--something often encountered when rebuilding transmissions, hydraulic cylinders, or spindles on machine tools etc. It also gets in the way when working in confined spaces.
It would be nice if you could remove the ratchet arm when you need to reach rings deep inside a cylinder, etc., then install it again. In fact, I may do this anyway by drilling out the rivet that holds it in, and putting in a nut and screw instead. If it already had this feature, I'd give it a solid 5 stars.
High quality and very sturdy, not like a lot of the pliers that have clamps to hold the tips, these tips are keyed and don't twist or slip.
I struggled for hours upon days trying to get the snap ring retaining clip into the steering knuckle of a 2006 Ford Explorer. I used regular snap-ring pliers from an auto parts store and a flat head screwdriver to get it out, but putting it back in was more of a challenge. When the standard snap-ring pliers wouldn't do it, I tried a pair of long handle bent nose pliers. Those gave me the leverage, but the tines barely made it into the holes of the snap ring. I could just about get the ring closed but as I tried to put it into place...PING!! it went flying. Out of shear frustration I searched for a better tool and came across this set.
When the package arrived, I was surprised by the size and weight. I thought no way "pliers" could weigh this much. But when I opened the box, saw the case and opened the case, I KNEW this tool was going to do the job. Picking up the pliers and feeling the quality and weight, I just knew I was going to OWN that snap ring! I didn't even have to change the tines on it. The size of the tool gave me the leverage to squeeze this 4" snap ring with one-handed ease and the locking mechanism on it was such a relief! The ring went in so fast I thought something HAD to be wrong, but everything worked just right. I'm kicking myself for not getting this sooner.
