Heavy Duty Split Ring Plier

- Featuring a Locking-Jaw Design to Keep The Strongest Split Rings Firmly in Place -

The Pitbull Tackle Heavy Duty Split Ring Plier offers the same great performance as our standard Split Ring Plier but with a newly redesigned jaw specifically made for opening stronger split rings. The angle is created in such a way where any user can open up 300lb split rings with ease. When rigging for heavy fish you need a tool that can stand up to the challenge, and this split ring plier delivers.

What sets these pliers apart from the rest is a double lock head design. This feature holds the split ring firmly in place and does not allow it to slip out of the pliers grip. Traditionally a split ring plier when closed will hold the split ring in place, however the split ring can rotate up and down within the pliers grip. The double lock design on the Pitbull Tackle Heavy Duty Split Ring Plier grabs and holds split rings in place, keeping them perpendicular to the pliers at all times. This ensures a steady and consistent angle every time, allowing for easier placement or removal of hooks and lures. Once in your hand you can feel the pliers open and lock in the split rings with ease.

Pitbull Tackle also wanted to give the user an improvement on traditional thinner handles and longer bulkier designs. The handle was made thicker, designed to naturally fit into the palm of your hand. Next, a non-slip material was chosen to give the user superb grip, and a bright color choice was chosen to make the pliers easily visible to the user. These pliers are lightweight and can easily fit in your pocket or tool holder, yet are constructed with corrosion resistant stainless steel to give the user both durability and functionality. We also offer a full line of Split Rings, check them out here!

    I needed split ring pliers and read in a Forum that these would work and were recommended. I needed to help with those Owner Ultra split rings in rigging for Bluefin. These pliers did not help open the gap enough to install 'Saltwater' hooks. Same on the Owner Hyper Wire split rings. Since I have to pay the return shipping, it was not worth the return.

    I was somewhat apprehensive to order these, I didn’t see how such a small pair of pliers could handle Owner’s Ultra Split Rings rated at 420-695 lbs. I was pleasantly surprised, they aren’t perfect but they are far better that any other split ring pliers I have, including the two from “Texas”. Great price , small but MIGHTY.
