Snap-on has introduced its SRPCR Series Snap Ring Pliers, which enable technicians to easily switch between internal and external rings up to 80 percent faster with the push of a button, while the longer 45° and 90° jaws allow for easier access to hard-to-reach retaining rings, the company says.
“These pliers can cut the time it takes to install and remove rings on transmission repairs, AC compression clutches, starter and turbo chargers in half,” says Rik Hopper, a Snap-on product manager. “Techs can use them to more quickly power through heavy-duty truck applications like installing and removing semi-floating rear axle bearings on the WARN M254 Dana 50/60 Hub Lock.”
Snap-on says the wide cushion grip of the tool offers more comfort and control, while its cold-forged steel contains a higher alloy content that makes the pliers stronger and more durable. The tool features a natural steel finish with a protective clear coating to defend against corrosion.
Technicians can safely store their tools away with the complete SRPCR112 Master Kit, a molded case with foam inserts and the full available line of new snap ring pliers, the company says.
