AA rings are breaking. Any advice?

Recommended Posts

Tighter rings take more skill to open - if you are getting a stress mark likely you are only seeing it on darker colors because it is easier to see. This is due to placement of pliers opposite each other which puts all the bend in 1 location on the ring. Use less plier surface on the ring like a chain nose instead of a wide nose. 

Breakage can occur simply from plier placement as noted above. It can also occur from over bending the ring - opening it too far or opening and closing too many times. This is again an issue with tighter AR rings.
