Product Description

Cable-Operated Hose Clamp Pliers Allow Fast and Easy Auto Repair

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.

  • Craftsman cable-operated hose clamp pliers quickly place or remove hose clamps
  • Sturdy cable finds and holds the perfect fit for each clamp
  • Works on a wide range of standard and space-saver hose clamps
  • Ideal for working in small engine compartments
  • Locks in place to free up your hands for other tasks

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

Great for hard to reach places, but couldn't remove most clamps
I used these spring clamp pliers to do a complete coolant hose replacement in an 89 Volkswagen. These pliers were indispensable to get at some hard to reach clamps and I would not have been able to complete the job without them. On the other hand, these pliers did not pinch most spring clamps enough to actually remove them over various fittings/nipples/junctions. I found myself using these cable operated pliers to spin hard to reach clamps into a position where I could get at them with a pair of Lisle spring clamp pliers (non-cable, and adjustable) which was kind of disappointing. I was hoping this cable operated plier would be the only hose clamp plier that I needed in my toolbox.

Handy set of pliers

No toolbox would be complete without this nice set of hose clamp pliers. The cable operation is a very handy feature to incorperate. It allows you to get to those hard to reach areas with ease.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Love it, Love it, Love it!!!

I'm a typical Do-It-Yourselfer. I gave a slight pause about buying this product, because of the price. I usually take off the clamps with a vise grip or some needle noses. I was having so much of a problem with them 1 day when I had to remove several of them for a coolant leak job. I couldn't take it anymore!! Upon reading the reviews, I gave in and bought it. Let me tell you, if you have any reservations about buying this product, don't! Buy it; like me, you will be glad you did because taking those @#$%^*" clamps off has never been so easy!!!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Lifesaver, worth every penny

When you have spring clamps, especially in tight spaces, having the proper tool is very important. These cable-operated pliers are awesome- easy to operate, work very well and work in very tight spaces. I would recommend these pliers to anyone that has to work on the cooling system of a car and doesn't have a lot of space to work with. I have only had them for a few weeks, but used them to do a radiator replacement once and will use them again in the next few weeks. With the lifetime guarantee, I'm not too worried, though, because I can always get them replaced at a nearby Sears.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great tool for hard to reach hose clamps

Great tool if your changing out your coolant hoses or radiator. I had to purchase this tool because of coolant clamp that was located next to the radiator that I couldn't access is regular tools. Struggled to try to get it back on for close to an hour when this had it back on in 2 minutes. It also made putting the rest of hose clamps a simple and easy job.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
