I need a new remote hose clamp plier and would prefer the ratchet lock. I currently have a Matco Tools HCPR10 (although they seem to be rubbed off whereas the Made in France is still very visible - hmm) which has the ratchet lock. The cable mechanism has failed. There is not a Matco Tools distributor in my area.

Mayhew 28680 is $60 on Amazaon & made in France.
Mayhew 45680 is $40 on Amazon & made in France. It doesn't show up on Mayhew's site any longer though.

What others would be recommended over either of these two models? Prefer not Chinese made. Also prefer something not crazy expensive such as Mac Tools HCPR1 for $146 or Snap-On SHCP1B at $157.

Thank you.

Edit: Wait, can you replace the cable set?

Mayhew and Snap-on are both made in France by the same company. Save your $$ and buy the Mayhew.

The Mayhew 28680 are identical to my Snap-on SHCP1A set.

I've been less than impressed with them, The Snap-on set I had before were a lot better, Don't remember the part#, But were also made by Mayhew, Unfortunately the end broke & got warrantied out for a SHCP1A.
The cable bunches up a the end after @ 50-60 clamps & becomes useless on smaller heater hose clamps. In fact I'm due for a new whip again.
