I used to have circlip pliers but they must have been borrowed by the family! This set from Screwfix is ideal and does the job well and at a good price. Thank you again Screwfix!

Rated 4 out of 5 Look cheap but get job done
I use these pliers in an industrial maintenance environment and they hold their own. The hinge does not wobble and the pins stay straight. The only downside is they look cheap and the handle grips feel cheap, but....they are cheap! So not really a complaint. Overall excellent value for money and do the job without fail

I work a lot on machinery and the circlips are always a nightmare to remove/replace. Other methods (usually a couple of nails and a normal set of pliers) will almost always distort or damage the clip. Without these you'll be wasting time and probably trapping fingers or grazing skin. These pliers make any job a walk in the park. No problems whatsoever. Sturdy set of tools. Should last years to come. (Don't be put off by the cheap packaging).
One final point - might be important to someone - the pliers are spring-set to the open position making them ideal for internal circlips. They WILL work with external circlips but you might need both hands to operate them as the handles need to be pulled apart for that operation. On smaller external circlips, not requiring much force, one-handed operation is still possible - just a little more fiddly.

Needed some Circlip pliers with a wide reach and capeable of compressing a rusted in item.
Had priced individually elsewhere, but then found these same as other supplier but pack of 4 for less than 1/3rd the cost and they did the job
