Hi

I'm trying to locate a tool to buy online but cant figure out the correct name for it.

I have some equipment which locks a shaft into position. It's a C shaped thing like a piston ring and to install/remove it I need a tool to spread the ends of the collar so it expand and releases from the shaft.

Anyone know what this might be called?

Thank you. I will give this a try.

It's a bit on the pricy side for a one off job. But the most important thing is I know the name of what I'm after so I can get a set for £3 from ebay.

Sorry about the late feedback
