Opening and closing loops
|To open a loop or ring, use one or two pairs of pliers to grasp the wire at the opening. Pull one pliers toward you and push the other away to bring the ends of the wire apart and out of the plane of the loop. Never spread the loop side to side, which will fatigue the metal. Close the loop by pulling the ends back into the plane.||
