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.
Having been in the maintenance world my entire life, I am always looking for an easier and quicker way. This tool is not top of the line but works for what it was intended for....
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
