From time to time when you’re taking something apart, you run into an e-clip. Sure, you can pry them off with a screwdriver, but getting them back on can present a problem if you don’t have the right tool.  This set of tools from OTC allows you to both remove and install four different sizes of e-clip.

The set comes with tools for 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, and 9mm e-clips. One end of the tool removes the e-clip while the other installs them. Each tool locks into the provided handle to give you a better grip.

To buy this tool set you can pay anywhere from $10 to $20 before shipping and handling.

    I’ve dealt with the clips before but didn’t know them by name, makes total sense though after I google-imaged them. In case anyone else is wondering what they look like…

    At work we call them Jesus clips. Only Jesus knows where they end up when they go flying.

    I guess we’re not the only ones who call them that- there’s a Wikipedia entry for Jesus clip. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus_clip

    I recall my older brother – a mechanic – telling me these were “Jesus clips.” His explanation was a tad different though. He claimed it was because when the thing went flying you would automatically shout “Jesus Christ.” Of course, once that happened it is true that only Jesus might know the whereabouts of the danged thing.
    As for the tool here, I really dislike tools that have so many parts. I recall buying some snap ring pliers many years ago, They came with a bunch of interchangable tips. Various sizes and different angles and such. I can still locate the pliers in my tool box but all those tips….it has been years since they all ran away from home. This tool looks like on e of those. Pretty soon you will have a very nice handle to use for something.

    Looks like if they had put just a wee bit more thought into it, they could have made the handle such that the blades would have stored inside.
