Video Transcript for Review of Performance Tool Hand Tools - Angled Hog Ring Pliers With 20 Hog Rings - PTW88003

Hi everybody, Andy here with, and today, we're gonna take a brief look at these angled hog ring pliers. Now, these Performance Tool angled hog ring pliers are useful for many applications like upholstery, fencing, craft, rope, bungee cords, bag closures, furniture, and much more. They are spring loaded, as you can see here, to aid in holding the hog ring. So I took out one of the included hog rings, you are gonna get 20 hog rings by the way, and as you can see, that spring loaded action is going to hold that ring into place, so you can easily then close that ring over whatever you're gonna be using this for. And the head is angled for easy access, and the head is especially designed for the hog ring to roll closed. And then the red cushion grips are gonna provide a comfortable grip, and I think those red cushions are going to allow you to have not only a comfortable grip, but a sure grip when you're using these.

These pliers are of a heavy-duty steel construction, and the overall length of these pliers, we're sitting right at about seven inches long, and the ring gauge compatibility is gonna be 16 gauge to 9 gauge, and like I said, you will get 20 hog rings and they have a diameter of 3/4 of an inch. That's gonna conclude our look today, I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy, thank you for joining me..

I had to replace 8 rollers on my boat trailer,the rollers came on time like etrailer said they would and the ones I purchased fits my easy loader trailer perfectly.I pulled one hog ring off,and yes it snapped in half so I got ahold of etrailer again and got the heavy-duty hog rings got them today on time and they worked perfectly,I ordered the hog ring pliers forget buying them they will not work with the heavy rings.I used a vise to bend the rings close to a snug fit the placed them in the holes and used a set of channel locks to finish the job works perfectly, hope this helps other people out. Thank you etrailer associates for your help,will keep you in mind for future orders!


Bought new rollers for my boat trailer. They were just what I needed. They are working out very well. The hog ring pliers I purchased to install rollers are a joke. I had to use heavy duty pliers to install the rollers and never used the pliers that I was told would do the job. Complete waste of money


Too small to be used for the installation of the Wobbly roller Retainer ring.





These pliers were totally inadequate for the retainer rings that came with the rollers. I used my large channel locks to secure the rings.


Very happy with the service and professionalism I received. Will order again from etrailer.


Worked great

  • Are Special Tools Needed to Attach Wobbler Rollers to a Shaft Using Retaining Rings
    I have tried to use channel locks before and they do not work all that well. You need what are called hog ring pliers such as # PTW88003. These pliers also come with fasteners but for boat trailer rollers you would want to use a retainer ring such as # CE10981 as an example.

  • Are There Different Sized Wobbler Roller Retaining Rings?
    There are different sized wobbler wheel retaining rings, however we only carry the one size of retaining ring. The CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring - Zinc-Plated Steel - Qty 1 # CE10981. This is designed for holding roller on 1-1/8" shaft size and 3/4" shaft size only. The diameter of this retainer ring is 3/16 inch. This is a fairly standard size and that is why we don't carry others. If you need a washer for this install, I recommend the CE Smith Wobble Roller Washer for 3/4"...

  • Wobble Roller Along With Washer And Retaining Ring
    The Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller - Heavy-Duty Rubber - 5" Diameter - 1-1/8" Shaft # YR530R-9P is normally retained with the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring - Zinc-Plated Steel - Qty 1 # CE10981 along with the CE Smith Wobble Roller Washer for 1-1/8" Shaft - Zinc-Plated Steel # CE10982. This is the only retainer ring we carry with the exception of the ones that come with the Angled Hog Ring Pliers # PTW88003.

  • Tool Recommendation for Installing Retainer Ring for Wobble Rollers
    Sounds like you are looking for a way to secure the # CE10981 to the shaft for the installation of the part # YR343R-6P. A decent set of pliers like the part # PTW88003 would do the trick. Or a set of channel locks.

  • Key Dimensions for Selecting Boat Trailer Wobble Rollers
    Boat trailer wobble rollers like # YR500YW-7P and not trailer-specific or brand-specific so if their dimensions match up you'll be fine using them as replacements. The key things to note are the size of the shaft hole in the roller, which is about an inch so that it fits well on a 7/8-inch diameter roller, and its overall diameter (5-inches) and width (3-inches). Clips like part # CE10981 are crimped on the ends of the shaft to keep the roller in place using Angled Hog Ring Pliers # PTW88003.

  • How to Install Wobble Rollers on Older Boat Trailer
    If you have enough of the shaft still intact then you can use the CE Smith Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981 and a Wobble Roller Washer # CE10983 for the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller # YR343R-6P for a 3/4" shaft. Otherwise you may need to get a new shaft and use the above products to secure the rollers. To install the retainer ring you can use ring pliers like part # PTW88003.

  • Parts Needed For Replacing Yates 530R Rollers On 7/8" Shafts
    Yes, there is an inner washer then the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller # YR530R-7P, outer washer and finally the Hog Ring Retainer # CE10981. We do have the Angled Hog Ring Pliers # PTW88003 to aid in the installation of the retainers. You may also consider upgrading to the TPR Roller # YR500YW-7P. This thermoplastic rubber outlasts the standard rubber rollers and will not mark up the boat hull.

  • Replacement Wobble Rollers 5 Diameter, 3 Wide For a 3/4 Shaft
    We have the Yates Ribbed Wobble Roller in either a Heavy-Duty Rubber # YR530R-6P or Thermoplastic Rubber # YR500YW-6P. These both are 5" in diameter, 3" wide and fit on a 3/4" shaft. These will both have a 7/8" hub diameter. We do also carry the 3/4" Wobble Roller Washer # CE10983, Wobble Roller Retainer Ring # CE10981 and Angled Hog Ring Pliers # PTW88003. These will allow you to replace any missing damaged or worn parts you may need.
