158 products
Retaining-ring pliers install and remove snap rings that fit into a bore or onto a shaft and hold components in place. Also known as circlip pliers, their tips provide a firm grip on the rings to prevent them from flying off. Each pair of pliers adjusts its jaws to accommodate rings within a set diameter range. Retaining-ring pliers are commonly used to place rings on actuators, gear assemblies, motor shafts, and other machinery.
