This split ring pliers works well. Quick and easy and does the job. Sure saves the nails!!!!
These pliers are amazing! they make jewelry making so much easier not having to try to open split rings with your fingernail!
What a time saver, wish I would have got them sooner.
There is several things I do not like about this tool. First is it is not as easy as it seems to be to open the ring. It is hard to position the ring exactly right on the "tooth" of the plier. Once you manage to do that and open it, it is hard to hold the tool shut with one hand and use the other hand to hold and put what ever it is you are trying to put the ring on and get it into the opening of the ring. Once you get it on, the ring doesn't tightly close like it did before you opened it, so things slip off of it easily, especially if it is a small gage chane etc.
