tool designed used to loosen oil filters, especially where access
is limited. Oil filter pliers are available in different lengths,
may be off-set, or may have a slip-joint.
To use oil filter pliers, reach into the engine bay and clamp firmly
onto the oil filter, being careful not to clamp down on any of the
hoses or hoses that surround the filter. The jaws bite into the
body of the filter giving a firm grip, while the long handles of
the tool provide the leverage needed to remove a stubborn filter.
