The Mustad Split Ring Pliers are a specialty plier designed to assist in the oft frustrating tasking of opening up split rings. The split ring pliers, from Mustad Fishing, are aid anglers in opening split rings in order to change out hooks, attach hooks to lures or remove hooks for storage purposes. Any angler who has ever tried opening up split rings knows the task can be nearly impossible at times and often downright frustrating. The split rings aren't designed to be easily opened, which is a good thing when it comes to fishing, but not so much when replacing or removing hooks is the task at hand. Aiding in this process are the Mustad Split Ring Pliers. Featuring a diamond teeth split-ring design, these pliers easily open all split rings. The pliers also incorporate a crimper, mono/wire cutter and serve as a standard pair of pliers in a pinch (terrible pun not intended). The pliers are constructed from stainless steel with Nor-Guard black nickel finish for maximum corrosion resistance. They feature exclusive Mustad Posi-Traction grips with moisture-channeling ridges that help the user maintain a firm grip. The pliers are kept within reach at all times as they include a durable high-denier sheath with locking belt strap and caribiner for belt loop with 20” adjustable wrist lanyard. The Mustad Split Ring Pliers are a great tool for any angler and make the process of changing out hooks or modifying lures much easier.
