Can't help but thanks for the link. I've wondered who made them better hog ring pliers, great for getting in at wire unlike the common design style.

 

I bought an expensive Stanley/boostitch one and the rings are too weak. Great for a triple bypass zip up or carcass join up.

Im pleased someone has brought these hog ring pliers up! I have got over 8 pairs of these bloody things in various states and what a waste of time they can be! I have a brand new set and several others and all most of them do is fire the clips out the end! I have tried 4 different types of cl22 clips from steel to alloy ones and the alloy ones are the best but even then they don't work properly. They are in my opinion such a massive rip off at near £50 a pop and does anyone know of any good ones that actually work. I also have some Stanley Bostich ones but the clips are not man enough really. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Mike, here here, the price of them they should be much better, hardly cutting edge technology involved, surely,

 

I have the problem of they reach final ten or so clips, then the spring isn't fit to push them forward,

 

Or the clips wont shut right,

 

Can anyone suggest consistently good working sets, I usually use the

Airco clips stocked by tornado.

We use and sell the Rapid ones, don't be put off by the plastic bit they are light and work well and are a dam site cheaper than the metal ones the hog rings are different also.
