Working on the hoses on the '95 Century today; never an easy job. But, these pliers take a hateful job, and reduce it to a mere nuisance.

On a-body cars like the '95 Century, with the trans lines on the cool tank of the radiator, the lower hose is very crowded. The tool allow you to grip the spring clamp on the fender side with ease.

It also make quick work of the heater core clamps; difficult on any a-body car!

Not a real cheap tool; made in France. It does do the job though!

Very useful tool. I have a slightly different version (made in USA) and it has been very handy. I take it junkyarding and collect many of the spring clamps when I have that opportunity.

The way this one is built, I actually prefer it over the standard tool because the jaws more securely hold the clamp. Never thought about taking it to the yard. Good idea!
