Congrats.... I guess I need to try that out Where to get one?
It really isn't if, but when. Happened to me tightening up a hinge on the barnyard gate. I had an old French tool called the Seaboard Steel I tried using. Sucker not only pinched, it actually caused a deep cut that bled like crazy and took forever to heal. It is unsafe to use without the spring; as the plier handle, when closed is to lay flush with the handle. The SOG Toolclip definitely improved that design.
