    Good snap ring pliers

    Hello all!

    I need a recommendation for good snapring/circlip pliers. They need to be heavy-duty and have a longer handle for leverage. Being able to fit in tight spaces is a must.

    Any recommendations?

    I second buying Snap On. I have had mine for many years and so far they have never let me down.

    I've been through a bunch, I agree with the others. Buy Snap On, and stay away from the ones with interchangeable tips.

    This is what I use day to day. Snap-on, mac and big ones are Caterpillar. All really good and do the job. If a tip breaks they replace for free.

    These are the ones I keep in the truck. If you're just doing one job you don't have to buy a whole set, you can get them individually. Buying used on eBay is a great way to save some money, they usually sell for around 50% of new cost.
