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.

Very cool action

I love that these can change between internal and external retaining ring pliers with a flip of a switch. They seem to be very sturdy, and come with several sets of alternate tips. Great value

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Tips I needed cut wrong

Bought these on sale and needed for a purpose. Seem nicely made and durable. Problem is the silver right angle tips are cut wrong. One tip has the pin for the snap ring hole on the short side and the other matching tip has the pin cut on the long side which is to go into the pliers. Guess which set of tips I needed?? I'm sure I don't have the only set like this! Always something and now back to Sears tomorrow and what are the odds they will correct the problem? Don't need a refund, I need the matching tips in this size!

Well-made and versatile

These pliers are well-made and versatile. The best feature is their ability to switch from inner to outer use, taking up less room in my toolbox than two sets of pliers. The interchangeable tips are also a nice feature, giving additional versatility. On the less positive side - and nothing that would cause me to deduct a star from the rating - is the fact that there is a small amount of "play" mostly due to the switching mechanism. Also the tips are stored in a small packet - keep track of it!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Has some nice heft to it

Snap rings have a lot of resistance to them; yet so often most snap ring pliers are cheaply made because we use them so infrequently. They will twist at the joint, sending the snap ring flying. Short of going with a set of knipex, these are the only design that will handle more than a light duty ring and may be big enough to handle the snap rings in wheel bearings.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman Retaining Ring Pliers

I purchased these to replace a broken pair. It is a great tool but it's a little cumbersome to use. I kept this one and also purchased the smaller version.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

more replacement tools

these pliers replace my lost ones. They are more comfortable to use but a little bulkier to carry around. Guess that is the trade off for comfort.

Made in the USA

These are high quality snap ring pliers. The pros are they have replaceable tips and they can be configured to switch from internal to external spring design with the flip of a lever.The handles are comfortable and sturdy and the tip holders line up precise. There are not many Craftsman tools left from the Professional line so I would get these while you can. They do sell replacement tips so I recommend getting one or two extra packs for the future in case they stop selling this item. This may not be that big of a deal since the tips are near identical to other name brand tips and should be a universal fit. I don't have any cons so these rate a definite buy from me.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Channellock Clone

Top notch product identical in every way to the Channellock version even down to the "Wear Safety Goggles" warning ground into the handle. The reversing switch is clever and takes a minute to get used to but is very handy. Well worth it. Wait for the sale/.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good tool, if you use it correctly

Occasionally I have a need for removing retaining rings, mostly snap rings/circlip types (with the holes on the end). For those, this tool is excellent. Works well on both internal and external, with a quick flip of the lever. Changing tips takes a minute or two, but doesn't bother me as I don't need to change them often. For a home user, these are excellent.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Funtional and Covenient

I'm not a professional mechanic, but I do my own automotive repairs when possible. I believe the professional may want different pliers readily available by his side, but I believe the average "shade tree" mechanic will have the patience / time to switch tips if the situation arises. I used mine for ball joints with a snap ring retainer and these pliers worked great. The tool worked as designed and I'm relieved to only have ONE set of pliers in my toolbox. I highly recommend these pliers if: 1) you can keep track of the included pouch with extra tips / allen wrench. 2) Don't need multiple pliers in a short period of time. I would definitely purchase another if I lost this tool. Look for it on sale / online.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
