I Love this tool

The Craftsman 2.5 in. Hose Pinch Off Tool is definately one of my favorite tools. I have a small engine repair shop and use this tool regularly. It is awsome and works great. I use it on radiator hoses on ATVs and sand buggies and on fule lines when doing carb work on othe routdoor power equipment. They clamp down very easily and shut the fluid supply completley off and does not damage or crimp the hoses at all. When you are done working with the hose pinch off pliers, it is just as easy to unclamp and remove the tool when you are done using it. I like this toold the most becuase I have never had any type of hose damage while using this tool. I have even used this tool while working on my son's boat over the summer. It worked well on the sump pump repair we did as well as cooling lines that we were fixing. I actually have 2-sets of this tool.

High Quality Mac Rebrand


Like others have stated, this is the exact same item as MAC Tool HCP556. When this came in, it was in a plain white box. It may say Craftsman on it, but like the Knipex Cobras Craftsman rebrands, this is a very high quality product. Made in USA. When they are available, I would grab them if you can.

USA Made MAC Tool Rebrand


Exact same as MAC Tool HCP556 which retails for $65.99. If Sears will still let your order it, just go for it. One of the last good tools they sell period.

Made in USA, as of 03/31/2018. Works great, really clamps well, and releases well. Great for clamping off upper and lower radiator hoses, or other large diameter hoses. Not a drop leaks when you clamp with this tool.
