Hog Ring Pliers Bent Nose
Product Review (submitted on May 29, 2012):
If you are looking to make crab / shrimp traps, these are MUCH better than the cheap, straight-nosed pliers you find @ Lowe's & Home D. These will fit into the little spaces of the 1/2 " hardware cloth of your cage wire that you are making. The spring-load handles = less hand fatigue. That makes a LOT of difference when you are making bunches of cages. The price is WELL worth it !
