Cable operated hose clamp pliers

Recommended Posts

Good or no good? I've had my eyes on some for the longest time and was going to buy a set untill I saw the new TIA video where Pat says they aren't worth the hassle. Has anybody had any experience with these and care to comment on whether they have had luck with them or not.

Anybody had any luck with these? https://www.channellock.com/558-Slip-Joint-Plier.aspx I've never gone wrong with a Channellock product before and am thinking that these hose clamp pliers may be the way to go. It would be nice if they made one with an angled/offset head.

I can live with getting both kinds. Like shetley said, there have been many situations working on FWD cars where this would have saved me a lot of time that I spent swearing wit channellocks or long reach needle nosed. I swear Corbin clamps haunt my dreams at night.

I had to change the heater core on a fwd Pontiac and I could not have gotten the lower radiator hose and heater hoses off without them. I think this is the pair I used. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000F5JM0O/ref=pd_aw_fbt_263_img_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=1DDE7Q0S4DH14BKA4Q2G

It looks exactly like mine, except mine are blue. So extremely handy many times, enough times to make it worthwhile to buy.
