Circlips are designed to be removed with special circlip pliers (snap ring tool) which can be reassembled for internal or external clips.While it is sometimes possible to remove or install a circlip without the proper pliers, the job is typically much easier with the correct tool. Spreading a circlip may be possible with a couple small screwdrivers, though this is more difficult than using a circlip pliers, and can result in the clip being bent or ejected and lost. Interchangeable heads unlike a regular circlip pliers set,can allow a wide range of circlips to be removed and installed. Since many heads with a variety of peg sizes and orientations can be installed to a single handle, the set may take up less space and be easier to move around from job to job. Non slip grip rubberized black handles help ensure a sturdy grip on the clip helping to prevent loss during repairs especially in tight situations. CirClip or Snap-ring pliers are a tool designed to install and remove snap rings, which are small metal rings that hold in a bearing or other assembly item by setting into a machined groove. Circlip or Snap rings are common in car engine parts as well as in motorcycle and bicycle shocks and forks.

Circlips can be used on the outer diameter of dowel or peg, or the inner diameter of a tube or other hole, so the ability of circlip pliers to both squeeze and spread can be important.
