Hose Clamp Pliers

I used a Hose Clamp Pliers to remove a radiator hose clamps on a school car today, It was the Matco brand, man what great tool, I was having problems using channel lock pliers, there was no room, used the Hose Clamp Pliers, and moved the clamp of the hose.
I would recommend a setup like this.
I feel like I was born again

That for sure is one neat looking tool! Conventional pliers, Channel locks or Vise Grips are frustrating for that purpose to say the least and most hose clamp pliers are not a whole lot better. I will definitely check those out and most likely put one in my box, thanks for the tip!

Thanks for the tip on those, I have had much better luck using Linesmen pliers than anything else on those type of clamps.

The work great. The only issue it the cables tend to kink if you are not careful. They are great for getting into hard to reach places.
