Home Made "Pinch Off" Pliers
Casey Schrock, Elkhart, Iowa: “I made a pair of ‘pinch off’ pliers, instead of buying them, by slipping a couple pieces of 1/4-in. rubber fuel line over a pair of 6-in. needle nose vice grips. It works great for pinching off fuel lines when removing carburetors from small engines. Or pinching a brake line when replacing calipers. Really, any time you open a line and don’t want all the fluid leaking out. Once you release the pliers, the hose springs right back to its original size.”
