I rebuild differentials for a living. My Craftsmen professional snap ring pliers are good, but will not open far enough to remove large hub and wheel bearing snap rings on the full floater differentials. I just used them this week to rebuild the hubs on an '06 Silverado 3500 with the 11.5" Ring Gear rear differential. The 1/8" hardened tips in straight, 45 deg., and 90 deg. are hardened, and remove the internal snap rings easily. I really appreciate the locking ratchet mechanism that holds the snap ring compressed so it can be lifted out of the hub. These pliers are made in Tiawan, are spot weld built from stamped heavy guage sheet metal. The welds are of good quality, and the construction is solid. I have no doubt these will last a long time. My opinion for selecting hand tools is that Tiawan built is good quality, but China or India built hand tools are generally of poor quality. I prefer U.S. built tools, but let's face it--- they are hard to find and comparatively very high priced.

These are a lot larger than I expected. They easily weigh a couple pounds apiece. That being said, they are also very stout and will work well for removing inside and outside snap rings in larger diameters--approx. 2 1/2" to 6" or so.

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.

These are not a cheap set of snap ring pliers. One of the pliers compresses while the other expands the snap ring. They are also not small. I have had to use them 3 times now and am very glad I bought these. There are additional sets of tips set at 45 and 90 degrees along with an extra set of machine screws. They come in a nice case and these are good tools.

Very beefy tool. They were much larger than expected when I first received them. Compared these to a much less expensive set of almost identical Cal-Hawk brand snap ring pliers, but this OTC set seems to be heavier duty/better quality. Made removing snap rings from wheel bearings and turbochargers a 10-second job instead of struggling for 10 minutes. I'm sure this set will last a good long time!

These are huge, and great for the bigger snaprings in transmissions and axles.

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.

Very nice set and use a lot on hydraulic cylinders. They are kind of bulky but will hold a large snap ring perfectly when you need the extra power only one of these can deliver. A lot less expensive than the tool truck for sure.

This tool set is WELL worth the money. The pictures don't do it justice. The quality and size made me realize I purchased the right tool for the job.

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.

Oversized Snap-ring pliers for those jobs that need extra oomph to accomplish. Craftsmanship is excellent with the tools and tips provided. They have the hefty and ridged feel that other high-end tool makers have. I have managed to break transmission gear retainer rings with these pliers and yet to have bent the grips out of shape. Great tools for transmission, turbo, and engine rebuilds.
