These Whole Spring Removing Pliers are used for gripping and removing springs. The jaws of these pliers are cut away to reach around posts while still maintaining a firm grip on the spring. The jaws are not hardened which will allow them to conform to the spring surface giving a more secure grip on the spring. The long handles allow for extra leverage for stubborn springs. These pliers work well for all woodwind instruments. You can use these with smaller woodwinds in areas where traditional spring removing pliers cannot easily fit.
