Hog Ring Pliers

Hog ring pliers info:
Harbor Freight has a "straight" one at USD 7: http://www.harborfreight.com/straight-h ... -3102.html
Advance has a straight one at USD 23 and a 45° one at the same price: http://www.harborfreight.com/straight-h ... -3102.html
I dunno the differences, but thought it would come in handy - the HF version is cheap enough to buy for a one time use. It's possible that some stores may "rent" the tools - I could not find it on the AZ site or on the ADV site.
Boy - hog rings are expensive - 20 of them range from USD13 to 15!

I always reuse them, but be careful not to bend them too far because they can break.
