I'm not selling anything, this is just a random question for all the do it yourselfer's as well as the seasoned Tech's...What sort of pliers do you all feel are the best to use when trying to remove those stubborn clamps (which seem to always be turned just out of reach) off of drain hoses on different washing machines?

Any old pliers works for me, but after doing it for so many years I have lots of practise.

Hope you find our site helpful.

You can buy from suppliers hose clamp pliers that have notches cut into the jaws forward and sideways usually less than $10.
