    Tools for removing obstinate hoses for auto repair

    I thought the hose pliers in this thread might be good for getting off obstinate hoses when I'm working on cars.

    That sent me on a fishing expedition where I found two neat tools on rockauto.

    This one is for pulling off hoses.

    ... and this one is for the little clamps that seem to always be in precisely the wrong position to be able to get a pair of pliers on them. I usually use a pair of needle-nose vice grips for these, but it's cool to know the tool exists.

    Specialty pliers to a mechanic are closely related to kitchen utensils no matter how many different types you have there will always be that one different design which will fit the niche use making life easier
