This toll works fine, has multiple heads to adjust. Did its job to remove the lockring on a 97 accord A/C compressor pulley. Had no problems removing both lock rings. However I damaged the compressor taking the pulley off (totally my fault). When taking pulley off do not hit just one side with a hammer (might could tap both sides lightly), you will damage the o-ring groove which is made of aluminum and not be able to get the new pulley back on. Take it to a shop, wiggle off with hand, use a puller.

Weak design for larger snap rings

Bought the product to remove a large snap ring. Broke one attachment and bent another before grinding down an old pair of pliers and using them to get the job done.

    Comments about Performance Tools 5-Piece Snap Ring Pliers Set:

    The item was available at the location because it had been returned previously. However, after examining the item, it was apparent that nothing was physically damaged. The item is just cheaply made and does not function as any mechanic would desire. I believe for this reason, the store no longer carries this product. I would recommend spending a little more money by buying a superior product to avoid the frustration that you will encounter if you buy this set and find out that it will not work for you while you are in the midst of completing your desired work.

        When you break your nails and fingers trying to take a seal off and finally break it, one is able to understand the need for such snap ring remover. Contrary to belief, it is a tricky stuff and cannot always be done with a screwdriver and you have to use one like this. Well priced and useful addition to every car's toolbox

            I didn't heed the warnings and thought but surely these would work for the job I was doing, how could something made of metal be THAT poor? Pretty poor apparently. Even at [$] they weren't worth that if they don't work at all. Abandon hope, all ye who purchase.

                  • Q:

                    Is there a snap ring plier smaller than 3/8"? I am trying to remove the snap ring from a PRHT latch on a Mazda Miata, and the smallest 3/8" setting on my plier is just a hair to big to fit into the grooves.

                      No, this is the only size of snap ring pliers we offer online. I would recommend visiting a local Advance Auto Parts store where they may carry a smaller size.
