Rapala Mini Split Ring Pliers
The mini split ring pliers are a great value for any fisherman who switches treble hooks or does anything that involves those tricky rings. This saves so much time and effort by opening up those rings, instead of trying to use a pocket knife of something that takes forever to get the job done.

Bought these pliers after seeing the Rapala name. Broke soon after purchase. Loosened up and stays loose. Virtually un-useable. Was very disappointed since I very much like most Rapala products but this one is a complete bust. Junk !!!

Broke upon second use
I thought this would be a great tool. It was difficult to use on small rings and the plastic spring in the middle broke the second time I used it. The tool then separated and is difficult to keep together without the spring I called Rapala to see if I could buy a replacement spring and they will not just sell me one I must have proof of purchase and send the entire tool back> Shipping would cost to much. I am very disappointed with quality and customer service by Rapala

Worst purchase ever!
The mini split ring pliers were a huge disappointment. Changing hooks requires patience and I was looking for a new tool that would simplify this job. The pliers do not open wide enough to easily clamp on a No. 3 split ring so I had to pull the handles apart before I could attempt to open the ring. I never could get the pliers to work and put them down and pulled out my longer needle nose pair. At least they work.
