Product Description

These Professional Retaining Ring Pliers Internal/External Deliver

Built to deliver twice the function of ordinary snap ring tools, these Craftsman professional retaining ring pliers internal/external swap easily between functions to make room in your box.

Featuring a wide performance range, these professional retaining ring pliers internal/external work on internal rings from 3/8 to 2 inches, while transforming with the slide of a tab to open external rings from ¼ to 2 inches. Including 4 pairs of tips and a hex key to lock them in place, they’re ready to work straight out of the box. A solid tool built to get the job done, slip these pliers in your kit and get the job done with tools you can trust.

  • Craftsman professional retaining ring pliers internal/external includes: Pliers, 4 color coded tips, hex key and pouch

Craftsman Professional Retaining Ring Pliers, Internal/External

I just got back from the local Sears store with a pair of these I needed to repair a copier.  Mind you, I'm no copier repair guy but without these we would have spent a fortune on the repair bill!

Poor quality grips on the handles!
This tool will literally walk right out of its own grips when you firmly squeeze it. If you're working on anything these, it becomes extremely awkward because the tool handles slide forward and walk right out of the rubber grips, mainly because of hose the handle is shaped and the fact that the grips are poorly fitting and too loose to stay on under pressure. Please avoid this tool at all costs and buy a different model or brand if you must. I am returning mine, because I found all the product at the store did the same thing and it's obviously a design flaw, not a lemon. Save your money, buy something else. This will infuriate you when you're trying to do work.

This pliers was well worth the money!

All the other pliers I looked at were just plain junk! The Craftsman pliers is well made, and easy to use. The reversing option is ingenious and solidly made!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Replaced My Shifter in 5 Minutes

Wow, these are awesome quality. I replaced the shifter in my 240SX in 5 minutes. Amazing what a good quality product with the right tips will do. No sure how they will hold up over time, but they seem to be decent quality. Highly recommended.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

made in USA, good quality.

these pliers are made in USA, at least the ones I bought were, and they seem to be of good quality. I like the way they are convertible, and overall they seem to be pretty rugged. the grip material is very good, same stuff as my telescoping magnet. it seems to stay on, wont get sweaty, and wont get very dirty, right amount of gritty-ness for perfect grip.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Must Have

These snap ring pliers are the best that i have seen thus far. I walked into them by chance while looking for a screwdriver believe it or not and taking a look at it behind the package i knew i had to give them a try. i opened the package and held them in my hand and i was just needed to try them out and luckily i got the opportunity an hour later. they worked wonders and honestly gave me absolutely no trouble. your tips are held in by a set screw and have never slipped or fallen out while in use. they have a very good grip and feel durable. The only thing i'm still skeptical about is the duration of mechanism that swaps the pliers from internal to external( which is extremely easy to use and takes less than a second). When in use i get the feeling that if anything ever goes wrong with these pliers its gonna be that mechanism. So far i've had them a month and use every other day and i have had absolutely no trouble from them.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
