Hog ring pliers are a tool used to clamp together hog rings. Hog ring pliers are a fast and easy method of attaching or connecting various materials together. These hog ring pliers are spring loaded and have groove marks on the inside of the nose to hold the hog rings in place for easy installation. Hog rings and pliers are commonly used in upholstery, marine, automotive, gardening and outdoor uses.
Hog ring pliers are used in the marine industry to attach hog rings around a length of shock cord to create tethers and tie downs. Making custom length looped shock cords and bungee cords with hooks on each end allows you to secure stowed items onboard your vessel as well as securing reefed sails and for luff enforcement.
These hog ring pliers are curved, which helps to secure hog rings in tight places such as automotive upholstery applications. You can also use hog ring pliers to quickly attach sides of a plant cage or chicken wire to build a cage for housing plants in your vegetable garden. Repair a chain-link fence by connecting the broken links together with hog rings.
These hog ring pliers are suggested to be used with both hog rings for shock cord (non-sharp ends) and hog rings for upholstery (sharp-point ends). These pliers are compatible with hog rings that measure 1/4 inch to 1 inch in length before crimping.
