Have you finally gotten that ball closure or segment ring you always wanted, but are struggling to actually get it on and off? Don’t worry, you are not the only one.
Luckily, there is an alternative to simply giving up: the forcep plier! These specially designed pliers are specifically tasked with making ball closure ring placement and removal as simple as possible.
The head of the pliers simple needs to be placed around the ball closure or segment ring, and squeezed open using the dynamic handles which make the task as simple as flicking a switch.
Once opened, all you have to do is remove or insert the ball or segment on your piercing ring. You can find instructions on how to use them below.
These pliers are meant for the thicker ball closure ring of 4 mm and 5 mm thickness. For sizes from 6.5 mm a lot of force is needed to open the rings.
