Best Hose Clamp Pliers: Top Tools for Removing Clamps
These top hose clamp pliers make engine work easier to do
The Astro pliers allow you to remove the plastic and/or metal self-tightening hose clamps with diameters of 11/16-inches to 2-1/2-inches (18mm - 54mm).
These maximum-strength pliers feature a precision clamp on the end of a flexible cable for extended reach. The cable is very thick, and the tool provides a very strong grip.
It may take more effort to compress the handle and release the lock compared to competitor products. Also, the pliers may break the first time you use them.
This pliers set includes cross slotted jaw pliers and wide, flat band hose clamp pliers. They can be used on most ring-type or flat-band hose clamps.
These pliers securely hold spring clamps and make removal and installation simple. The jaws swivel to access hose clamps in any position, and they easily grab just about any type of clamp.
They may not squeeze certain clamps enough to get them on or off the hoses. They also may slip off the clamps and don't work well on smaller clamps.
This set includes flexible hose clamp, swivel jaw, curved hose, hose remover, and cross slotted jaw pliers as well as a hose removal hook and a double-head screwdriver.
The tools work well and fit your hand nicely. The set provides everything you need to remove and replace hoses on items such as a water pump.
One issue is the kit does not identify the type of clamps for each pair of pliers. Also, the pliers are cheaply made and may break after a short period of use.
