To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
These hose clamp/spark plug wire pliers are the best money can buy.The quality of them is second to none! My only gripe is,they are not cheap,but you get what you pay for,and will last a lifetime of use.
I had recently bought a Cub Cadet snow blower, and while I was storing it for the summer, I saw that I could not remove the metal shroud that covered the spark plug. It was several inches long and fairly deep into the side of the machine, and I had very little access and absolutely no leverage to pull this shroud off. I called Cub Cadet and a tech support person suggested I buy a spark plug pliers. I had never heard of this but found a ton of them on Amazon. They ranged in price from about $10 to this Knipex item, which cost almost three time that amount. But this item was not only the highest rated, but it was made in Germany while virtually all the others were made in China. Well, it took me about two seconds to remove the shroud. Could a less expensive spark plug pliers have done the trick? Probably. But when I buy a tool I expect to have for life, I try to buy quality -- and this is exactly what these pliers are.
Amazon warehouse deal, looks like a fork lift ran them over, and they got stuck under it, skidding the rubber coating off the handles, and causing some wear off the metal it’s self, but as a testament to the quality of Kinpex tools, they work beautifully still, no play, align perfectly. Excellent quality, definitely recommend. See pictures
