Using Split Ring Pliers

Step 1

Grasp the pliers so the bent nose is at the top.

Step 2

Align the tip of the bent nose of the split ring pliers with the seam in the side of the split ring.

Step 3

Push the pliers down so the tip of the bent nose of the pliers slips between the rings.

Step 4

Slip the clasp into the opening between the rings created by the tip of the bent nose of the pliers.

Step 5

Release the pliers and rotate the clasp around the ring until it slips inside. This is similar to putting a key on a key chain.

Step 6

Congratulations! You have successfully used split ring pliers.
