Using Split Rings to securely attach your lure to your trebles is a snap when you use split ring tweezers. With the right tools you won't have to watch the little buggers go flying across the boat as they snap shut and try to escape.
Are split ring pliers better than tweezers? Pliers and tweezers basically work exactly the same. The main difference is the grip. With pliers you grip the handles using your entire hand. When using tweezers you use your thumb and index finger to press the tip of the tweezers together and open the split ring. Tweezers are more lightweight, easier to use and cause less hand fatigue, especially when re-rigging a number of lures.
