If you are a fisherman, saltwater or fresh, you have used split rings to join lures to a hook. Pretty simple concept, however opening the rings can be a challenge. Xuron’s Model 496 Split Ring Pliers offer a fast and convenient option (as opposed to using your fingernail or a thin knife).
What makes Xuron® Split Ring Pliers different?
✔️ The curved tip is long enough to effectively fit between the rings and open them
✔️ The opposing blade has a “notch” that seats and holds the ring for better stability
✔️ Made from heat treated high carbon steel
✔️ Made in USA!
Thanks to the good people at Today’s Angler, for this instructional video showing the pliers used while reshafting a musky bucktail fishing lure.
