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.

Rataining Ring Pliers did the job well.

Retaining ring pliers were the right tool for the job. I did not have to look any further other than look for other jobs that I could use this pliers in the future.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

solid tool

It's not a tool I would use very often but for those times when you need to remove a snap ring I think this tool is the way to go.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Get the job done

The Craftsman Retaining Ring Pliers, Internal/External do a great job. You can easily switch between external and internal retaining ring pliers with a simple flip of a switch. Also it comes with lots of different pins to get the job done. I cant tell you how nice it is to have both tools in one!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

great tool

Sears retaining ring pliers made it easy to remove/install retainer rings on a repair project. I was impressed with the number is pins and hex tool in the resealable plastic bag. The store container makes a great storage container too. A great bargain for the price!!!

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.
