I had bent nose pliers in my collection long before I realized how helpful they were. The only thing I thought they did was open split rings.
Then one day I used them to open jump rings. I don’t know what it is about the bend that makes them so useful opening jump rings, but once you try them, you won’t look back.

Nylon pliers are great because when the nylon starts to wear out, you just replace it.
