Default Need to borrow safety wire pliers!

Well I got my safety wire in and started to work on the turbine housing bolts, well to make a short story short then locking mechanism sucks on the set I bought....

Is anybody willing to let me borrow theirs? I will pay for shipping, I dont feel like waiting to on returning these and finding a new set just to get my turbo back in the car....

Pretty please???????

You can do it by hand with a regular set of pliers, it just sucks a little. Much easier/faster than shipping a set.

I use shitty HF pliers, I had a nice Longacre set but the garage ate them.

I was just thinking about doing it the hard way after searching the web for another set of pliers and everywhere sells the exact same set I bought. Oh well, hopefully the place I bought this set from will refund my money!

I was really excited about getting to use them.....

Can you post pictures maybe of your pliers that suck? AKA: "stay away from locking mechanisms like this:"
