Rated 5 out of 5 by tbirdscwd Save time and frustration on hard to reach hose clamps
These things come in really handy with hard to reach hose clamps. Previously, I had cussed up a storm and scraped up the little prongs on some annoyingly placed clamps when trying to remove them and then re-install them.....now with these puppies, I just ratchet them down and maneuver the clamp off and on with my free hand. Best thing about them is not having to fit a set of pliers in to hard to reach places and once they are locked, the clamp is in your control. No longer do hose clamps control the outcome of my mood when working on cars/trucks :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by PierceTech A lifesaver!
This tool has definitely saved me so much time and hassle when doing work on the cooling system or anything that involves removing hoses. It's not a perfect tool, but it feels like it is when it saves you time and keeps you from getting frustrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TJohnson Time saver.
This is a good tool that will save you a lot of time when you are fighting with hose clamps. It's great for getting into places that are impossible to get a pair of channel locks into. The stop that holds the end of the wire can slip sometimes when you're really putting heavy pressure on it, but they give you an extra one and you can always get a new one from your tool guy if it breaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 16210C Saves time.
Had a coolant line on the back of the head on an isb cummins, if i would have had these it would have turned a half day job of removing the valve cover, all the air cleaning and routing hoses, and other brackets, to a 5 minute job. Reaches at any angle and fits everywhere, the last detent of the lock feature is difficult to lock and un-lock, but still performs well over any expactations, and a good time saving tool.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trincher87 it serves the purpose
the product does work, however, the locking lever will not lock into its last position. In trying to do so, the teeth that lock in have been slightly rounded off. also, unlike the snap-on product that i have used from a co-worker, it does not have a stow and go feature, so the cable and clamps tend to get in the way in my drawer. like i said, it does serve its purpose but the engineering could have been better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jordan Great for those hard to reach hose clamps.
Perfect for those hose clamps where cant fit pliers or even your hand. Makes the job a lot easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AndrewMiniCooper Great for Mini Cooper hose clamps!
I am a Mini Cooper technician and this works great for the hose clamps. The locking feature helps a lot and so does the length of the cable. Great tool!
