BOW SPRING CIRCLIP PLIER

BOW SPRING CIRCLIP PLIER

Long Nose Circlip Pliers

Long nose circlip pliers are a specialist tool designed for use with longer dowels or bores. They’re also handy for inserting and removing C-clips in harder-to-reach places.

These pliers feature noticeably extended tips for easier operation. Long nose internal circlip pliers tend to be more widely sold than external versions. This is because it’s generally more challenging to insert a snap ring inside a deep bore than around the outside of one.

You can buy long nose circlip pliers that come with either straight or bent tips. The best choice will depend on the types of installations or access conditions you will be working with most often.

BOW SPRING CIRCLIP PLIER

are a type of pliers designed for removing and installing circlips, which are a common type of retaining ring.

Circlip pliers may also be known as snap ring pliers or retaining ring pliers.

Circlip pliers are sometimes referred to as retaining ring pliers, snap ring pliers or C-clip pliers. They’re designed for installing or removing circlips, a type of fastener that works like a retaining ring.

Circlip pliers are a particular type of hand tool designed for installing and removing C-clips. the main difference between retaining ring pliers and normal pliers is that circlip pliers feature a tip specially designed for working with circlips.

Standard plier models generally have flattened or sharpened tips, depending on the particular applications they are intended to be used in. Circlip pliers, on the other hand, have tips shaped precisely to fit between the grip holes of circlips. This makes it far easier to manipulate and manoeuvre them into place.

Individual pairs of snap ring pliers are usually made to work only with circlips of certain specific diameters. Although C-clips can come in a fairly wide range of sizes, they’re most often sold around a more limited range of ‘standard’ gauges. These tend to be found in far more widespread use than other, non-standard varieties and sizes.

How to Use Circlip Pliers

When it comes to knowing how to use circlip pliers, the key is first to make sure that you’re using the correct ones for the task at hand.

First and foremost, selecting the best circlip pliers for a given job means knowing exactly what size of retaining ring you’re working with. Secondly, you’ll need to identify what type of C-clip installation or removal you’re performing – internal or external.

Installing and Removing Internal Snap Rings

  1. Insert the circlip plier tips into the lug holes of the C-clip
  2. Squeeze the handles, bringing the plier tips together; this will reduce the diameter of the retaining ring
  3. Ensure you’re only exerting enough pressure on the retaining ring to insert it into the required position (too much force can damage or break it)
  4. Holding the pliers firm and steady, slot the circlip into the groove inside the shaft or bore where it’s going to sit
  5. Release the pliers only when the C-clip is fully seated
  6. To remove an internal retaining ring, simply reverse the order of the steps above

Installing and Removing External Snap Rings

  1. Insert the circlip plier tips into the lug holes of the C-clip
  2. Squeeze the handles, forcing the plier tips apart – this will increase the diameter of the retaining ring
  3. Once again, ensure you’re only exerting enough pressure on the retaining ring to slip it into the required position around the outside of the shaft or dowel (too much force can damage or break it)
  4. Maintain a firm and even grip on the plier handles, and make sure the circlip is fully seated in the groove before releasing – it should click into place when correctly positioned
  5. Release the pliers only when the C-clip is fully seated
  6. To remove an external retaining ring, simply reverse the order of the steps above
