They worked, but it wasn't easy

Comments about AutoCraft Snap Ring Pliers Set (5-Piece):

I bought these pliers after struggling to replace a simple snap ring on my lawnmower wheel with a screwdriver. I wanted a cheaper version, but it was out of stock at the store, despite what the website said. I finally had success with the pliers, but it was almost as aggravating as using the screwdriver. The pliers as assembled didn't open the ring enough.There are no instructions for swapping out the tips, but I found them online for another brand. You have to remove the spring-loaded center pin, take off the tips and put a different set on the mounting posts, and then put the pin back -- none of which are easy. You also can move the tips forward to the top mounting posts, which I had to do to get enough leverage for the job. But they wobble around and make it hard to get a stable grip. I will save these pliers for the next time I have to replace a wheel. But I wish I had shopped around and gotten a sturdier set at a better price. Plenty were available at different places around town and online.

    Comments about AutoCraft Snap Ring Pliers Set (5-Piece):

    These things aren't even worth the scrap metal they're probably made out of. Do yourself a favor and buy something else and don't even bother with these. You'll just be throwing your money away. I have yet to be able to remove or install a snap ring with these things. I always ended up making due with a screwdriver or pick to dig out a snap ring. Will definitely be investing in a QUALITY snap ring puller set and throwing these in the trash where they belong. Would I recommend them to a friend?...Absolutely not...I wouldn't even recommend them to my worst enemy.

        The other reviews are right. THe tool is so poorly made the is will not open enough to remove or install a snap ring.
        If this tool is any indication about the quality of Autocraft tools I would never buy anything they made.

          Don't waste your money buying these totally useless pliers. They are so flimsy and poorly designed that they are impossible to use. To add insult to injury, they were also covered in oil inside the package.

            Comments about AutoCraft Snap Ring Pliers Set (5-Piece):

            Probably the worst tool I've ever bought. Very cheap and flimsy and wouldn't even open far enough to use. Not that it really mattered because they would have snapped in half anyway. Worst part is the identical set is way cheaper at another store. I wound up getting a far superior tool elsewhere. Not only are they bigger, more robust, come with a case, but they open wide enough!

            I ended up using needle nose pliers to remove the snap ring because these pliers wouldn't open the snap ring wide enough for me to remove it. These pliers eventually felt apart after fighting with these pliers for so long.
