Small Ring Opening Pliers for BCRs

Isha Body Jewellery

  • Got a Ball Closure Ring (BCR), but unable to use it?  You need these pliers!  Tried and tested by Body Piercers worldwide.  These pliers are spring-loaded which enables very smooth usage, particularly useful when using with small gauge jewellery in a tight piercing.  Without this function, ring-opening pliers can be tricky for the inexperienced to manipluate.  We see this as an extremely important feature and for that reason, use these pliers in our body piercing studio.   

    To Use:
    Grip the ball of the ring in your fingers and with the other hand, hold the pliers.  Place the tip of the pliers inside the ring and very gently squeeze the handles to open the end of the pliers.  Gently brace the ends against the two sides of the ring until the ball comes out.  If you squeeze too much, you'll risk stretching the diameter of the ring and the ball won't sit tightly when replaced.

    Length: 120mm
    Width: 55mm
    Suitable Jewellery: Ball Closure Rings (BCRs)
