A number of our kit assemblies include stainless "ear clamps" that require this tool for installation. Ear clamps are superior to the standard "screw" clamps because they never loosen up, and they do not damage the surface of the hose.
While one can get away with using "end cutter" or "bullnose" pliers for the job, we are pleased to offer the genuine German-made Oetiker brand tool. This is the best pincer plier on the market today, and will be an excellent addition to your toolbox.
Kits that require this tool are listed below as related items.d: toolspecial
