Where has a tool like this been all my life?! It’s not perfect, but it’s definitely good for what I need it for, and I know the option to upgrade somewhere has to exist.
-Cheap. These are the cheapest pliers I own right now
-Effective, for the most part. They pop rings open enough to get small objects through, which is mostly what I need right now.
-Definitely not ergonomic. I’d have paid a little more for a pair with better handles, and that had a hinge or spring on it to push it back open. They aggravate my carpal tunnel after a while, so I’ve had to work in bursts on this project.
-They don’t open very far. Unless there’s a trick I’m missing, these really don’t open the rings open very far, which only makes them useful for small-gauge projects.
Overall, not the worst product I’ve purchased. They suffice for what I need right now, and that’s all I can ask for for a pair this cheap.
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.
