It does the job. I needed this to reinstall ~4" retaining ring from a Ducati swingarm.. It was relatively not so difficult removing it but it was impossible reinstalling it. I broke down and ordered this tool, even it would be a once or twice used tool. I run a fab shop so I may have a need for it again.
First the good. It's pretty dang tough! It opened up a fairly big ring with ease.
The ratchet action is a real plus, especially when you're trying to keep big rings open. This is my first set of ring pliers with a ratchet and I'm quite pleased.
It comes with different size pins, but I have not had a need to swap them out at the moment. I'm sure they are fine.
The tool switches from internal to external, and vice versa, with a flick of a lever. This is also quite nice. In the past, I've always had to install internal/external adapters for this purpose.
The bad: The ratchet does not have an auto-release. You...
I purchased this tool after being unable to find a capable plier at any of the local tool depots. I needed to remove and replace an internal, 2-3/8 inch retaining ring. Nothing I found was large enough for the task. I was a bit apprehensive when I first put the item in my cart, but once received, those concerns quickly vanished. Although an odd looking contraption, the tool is well engineered, is rugged, has nicely cushioned handles, and sold with a very nice assortment of tips. Six pairs: an almost straight pair, and almost right angle pair in 3 color coded tip sizes to be exact. Plus two extra set screws, an allen wrench, and a handy pouch to carry all the loose pieces (not the tool unfortunately) were included.
The ratchet design worked effortlessly. A thumb release, although clumsy to use at first, was very effective in releasing the tension applied to the ring once installed or removed. The "Ext" and "Int" worked magically to reverse the force of the tool. A...
I use a couple of fixed size retaining ring plier sets at work, one is a Snap-On and the other is a Matco. Considering the cost of this tool vs the more expensive fixed size arrangements this one wins hands down for several reasons. It doesn't take up nearly as much space in my tool cabinet drawer at home and is quicker to change from internal to external with the flip of the switch. The hardened tips are replaceable vs the fixed pliers needing to be totally replaced. The quick change tips on this tool are keyed in the socket and don't get loose and turn like some of the other replaceable tip retaining ring pliers.
This item even included 2 extra Allen Head set screws with the 6 tips. The mechanism is twice as strong as the fixed set pliers I have at work with no flexing on the heavy thicker retaining rings. Retaining ring pliers are the most abused tool on the planet. If you ever worked with exhaust assemblies, turbos and the like you know that retaining rings rust in and...
