This is by far the best pair of snap ring pliers I own. The tips are very tough, come in a variety of sizes and can be rotated to meet the needed angle of approach.
I bought these pliers because the ones I had couldn't remove a particularly strong snap ring on a motorcycle drive shaft - these got it done on the first try. Putting a new ring back on was just as easy. The handles rotate to go from an internal to external configuration easily enough but at the same time lock into place and stay put when using the tool.
This really is a quality tool that will outlast whatever car you're using this on - it's the best pair of snap ring pliers on Amazon.
Bonus Points: Made in the USA.
The pliers are cleverly built and looked like a good product, but the center is made out of cast iron and when trying to squeeze a 3" snap ring the cast iron rounded off and left the pliers useless. Perhaps if you were using them on 1" or smaller rings they would be a good tool to have in your box.
I own an early 1970's backhoe tractor and also an old 80's 4X4...and run a small welding shop w/ various older machines. I have yet to find a snap ring that this tool cannot remove or install, no matter if it is an inner ring OR an outer ring! With so many tips, w/ various angles, to choose from,...plus the way the tool ingeniously inverts to do either inner or outer rings...it is all I need to keep on hand. No need for a "Complete Set" of snap ring pliers anymore. I do agree w/ other reviewers that there are SO many tips included, that they are hard to keep track of them all in their tiny plastic case...but what the heck? So I just need to be a little more diligent about not losing them, and I need to come up w/ a clever way to keep track of them...it is still SO worth the money! Just a quick note...take advantage of the small allen-head screws near the tips of the snap-ring plier's jaws...loosening these small screws enables a deeper and stronger mounting of the individual tips.
