Pliers Are Designed to Prevent Overexpansion of Circlips
Knipex Tools LP has released a series of circlip pliers with an overstretching limiter for all snap rings with a diameter of 1/8 inch to 3-15/16 inches.
The series includes internal circlips for bore holes and external circlips for shafts.
Both series of Knipex Precision Circlip Pliers feature an overstretching limiter with an adjustable screw stop to prevent overexpansion of circlips and a bolted joint for precision operation.
The external circlip pliers have a spring inside the joint, which prevents the spring from getting dirty or lost.
