      Hose clamps can be a pain, but the Craftsman cable-operated hose clamp pliers cut through the inconvenience and let you place clamps in one easy step. Rather than struggling to hold the clamp tightly in place while adjusting the screws or other fasteners, you can use the pliers as your extra set of hands. Set the clamp wherever needed, and the pliers firmly draw it closed in exactly the desired spot. Lock the tool and let go while you make final adjustments to your clamp for a totally hassle-free placement.

      These cable-operated hose clamp pliers work with most standard and space save hose clamps for an all-purpose tool you'll want close at hand for all hose replacements or repairs. Remove the old self-tightening clamps with the same easy steps. With steel construction and thick vinyl grips, these pliers are made to be used for many years to come.

      Spring clamp hose pliers
      I have aVW Cabriolet, Toyota Camery and a Isuzu Trooper, all of them have spring hose clamps as do most european cars. I had the oil cooler hose burst on the VW. After fighting with some chanel lock pliers I was able to remove the spring hose clamps. it only took four hours. It took half the time to replace them. After talking to the mechanic at work he said they make a tool for that and he bought his on a tool truck that comes to the shop. I looked on line for spring clamp pliers and found some in the range of $75.00 and up. I checked an online auction and found a pair they sold for $69.00. I went to the local Sears store and went to the auto specialty section and found a pair of craftsman for only $39.99. I hesitated a bit before buying them. It was the last set. I Bought them and the first thing I did when I got home was to try them out on the VW. The clamp slid right off in seconds. If I had had these a couple of weeks ago I could have saved hours not fighting the clamps using chanel lock pliers. A real must have. If you have any type of spring clamps on your vehicle you have to get this tool. It will get into places chanel locks wont and save hours of frustration

      horrible!

      I have bought three of these from three different Sears and exchanged them all atleast once within a week, because the crimp all the way at the end that holds the top portion of the clamping peice never holds it is not crimped tight enough for even use on one hose clamp. I would not not reccomend this item to anyone

      Good Quality

      I purchased these hose clamp pliers because they are absolutely necessary to remove the spring type clamps found on many cars today. This set has a locking lever that works well and the cable is long enough to reach in tight places. Has worked well for me so far.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      CRAFTSMAN Cable Operated Hose Clamp Pliers

      After struggling for over an hour trying to loosen a clamp in a very difficult to reach location behind the engine, I gave up and went looking for these. Literally 2 mins and the clamp was off. This is an indispensable tool for hard to reach places, and it can grip a large variety of clamp sizes very well, and is definitely strong enough to handle some large radiator hose clamps. Must have product.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Must have for mechanics

      These are great pliers - a required item if you work with hose clamps which are deep down in many newer vehicles, especially European ones. Once you try them you will realize how much they save your knuckles.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Works... but average quality

      I used this tool a few times now... it works OK, however, it seems very flimsy... the quality of the tool is not that great. I've also noticed after a few days in my tool box, it started to rust very bad. I had to pray it down with WD-40. I don't recommend this to anyone.

      Essential Tool

      If you work on modern cars with factory hose clamps these are a necessity.Working in the tight confines of an engine bay you'll find yourself reaching for these often.Once you've used this type of tool you'll wonder how you made do without.This tool is made in Europe and the quality seems excellent.This tool is offered in a ratcheting variety by some other companies which is somewhat more versatile but tend to strip and slip over time.The simple mechanism on this unit locks securely with no issues.Good luck.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      VERY unique

      This is an extremely unique and useful tool. Its uses are limited, but when you need it, nothing else will do the job! Some clamps are located where no other plyer will fit.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Great for intercooler pipes

      Just the right tool for removing hard to reach factory style hose clamps on import cars. I bought these to get the intercooler pipe clamps off my volkswagen TDI.
