Nothing Better at TWICE the Price! Review by Thick7inches
Quality

I am a retired Federal purchasing agent, and searched worldwide for a quality set of ring opening pliers, and never found anything remotely resembling the quality of these ones. In the hardware business, they are more commonly known as "snap ring pliers", but cost almost as much, and can't handle anytjhing larger than 6 gauge.
So folks, do yourselves a favor, and buy THESE ones and be DONE! My only negative comment is that the head of the pliers, from the hinge up, should have a thick and durable plastic or polymer coating. The first thing I did with mine was dunk them in Plastidip tool handle coating (available at most hardwear and home improvement stores, and in several fun colors), a couple of times, with ample curing time in between coats. It protects your jewelry, and more importantly, provides a very sure GRIP on them (especially useful for smaller rings, particularly youjr nipple rings.
Finally, a real bonus: those pesky spring, or hog ring clamps under the hood of your car, lol...

Great pair of pliers! Review by TNT
Quality

These work very well for my 00 gave ring! The heavy duty pliers open the thick gage fairly easy allowing for me to add the captive bead!

Just the right tool. Review by Tony
Quality

I have this wonderful 0 ga circular captive that I haven't been able to use because nobody could even get it open. These pliers were just the tool for the job.

They just showed up and I am very impressed.
Not that I mind going to my piercer to have my PA ring changed. These opened my 00ga 3/4" captive ball ring with little effort.
The pneumatic action of these openers is outstanding and I will be recommending them to other people I know who have large gauge rings.
Using my digital caliper I did some checking and this set of openers should open any large gauge ring that is 3/8" to 1 3/16" on the top dibit and 7/16" to 1 3/8" on the lowest dibit. That is a nice range. Mind you, the low measurements would be tight fits.

I want to thank the Chain Gang staff for having these.

These pliers are strongly built - I use them to open a 00 gauge segment ring - but their maximum opening is only about 1", so they may not be large enough for really large pieces. Good quality though, and a fair price.

The pliers are sturdy and well built. They will open 2g rings but not easily unless you are fairly strong in the hands.

Seems very well made. Worth the money, and now I don't have to go have someone else put in/remove my jewelry. Worked great for opening my titanium smooth segment ring for my PA!

This tool was absolutely required to handle my new 4gg surgical steel segment ring. I couldn't open the ring with any other tool. This one is great.

Top quality! Nicely curved surfaces so it won\'t scratch your jewelry.

Excellent well designed tool. The pliers worked easily in my \"man\" hands. Someone with smaller hands may have a tougher time gripping the handles with one hand. I appreciate the ring notches in the noses. The tool exceeded my expectations.
