redsand, those tools are great but are way too big for our little e-clips.
greddy, that works great and is the way I have done it for years. The only ones that doesn't work on is the 2mm e-clips you see on shock shafts which can be a royal PITA. For that, Tamiya makes a sweet 2mm and 4mm tool for e-clips. You can see a pic and the part numbers here http://www.rccaraction.com/RC/articl...ool_guide3.asp
