    I have never seen a tool like that does not mean there is not one out there.

    Now would a better set of Chinese Fingers work

    I have a cheapo pair like that. Don't have quite the heft I need and the surgical tool clips in place at whatever tension I'd like. I thought I'd get it good and snugged and snap shut and then use another thing like a screwdriver to provide the upward prying force to get the busted tube out of the tube.

    Bent long nose pliers are a grasping tool, the thing is I cannot grasp this part so they need to provide an "opening" force, not a pinching force. The working action of the snap ring pliers is the force I need, but those don't have the head shape I need to really dig into the busted part from underneath to provide me the lifting wiggling force I need to shimmy out this busted tube.

    There are hefty snap ring pliers out there. You might be able to do a crude rendition of your surgical tensioner with a pair of vise grips on the plier handles.

    There is also another style of snap ring pliers similar to this; I have a pair and they're quite sturdy:

    Or you could just use the surgical tool and give it a good cleaning afterwards... :anonymous:

    Oooh... those are a potential. And you only live like 5-10 minutes from me. If only they had a right angle bend to get down in this hole (no sick comments anyone) they'd be perfect. Might I try to borrow those Dave?

    So the channellock ones I linked have multiple tips at the end held in with a set screw.

    It sounds like you're looking for something that will hold open the tubing hands free, which is why I thought of the 927s since it can be switched up tips open or closed without pressure...

    Or the gyno tool

    No but my lazy ass doesn’t need to go out to start my truck anymore. That was prob the fastest mod I have ever done. It took longer to remove all the panels then to install it.
