Knipex Retaining Ring Pliers are designed for continuous, heavy-duty operation
Knipex Tools' Retaining Ring Pliers are available in several variations for use on a range of retaining ring sizes and styles. The Precision Retaining Ring Pliers product lines are designed for continuous operation. They are designed with high-density spring steel tips inserted into the forged body. The large contact surface around the tips is built to help hold the retaining rings in place. They are available in internal and external styles; straight or 90-degree angles; and in all popular sizes.
Knipex also has a fully forged retaining ring pliers line that is forged of chrome vanadium steel and oil-hardened. Available in straight, 90-degree and 45-degree angled-tip patterns, plastic-coated handles and non-slip tips make them easy to handle for applications with shafts from 5/16-inch to 5-33/64-inches in diameter.
In addition to these two product lines, Knipex offers two other specialty retaining ring pliers series; one for large retaining rings and one for horseshoe-shaped spring retaining rings and circlips without grip holes. The large retaining ring pliers work for applications requiring 4-51/64-inch to 15-3/4-inch diameters in both external and internal styles. The pliers are designed with a locking device that may be released without completing the cycle. These pliers are available in 90-degree-angle and straight-tip models. The special retaining ring pliers, designed specifically for fitting horseshoe-shaped spring retaining rings and circlips without grip-holes, feature an opening spring and are made from chrome vanadium electric steel that is forged and oil-hardened.
