Menards cheapo house brand pliers

I trashed my junk lockring tool and found this idea online after some searching so I thought I'd throw it up on here. Pretty self explanatory, get some decent sized cheapo pliers, mine were five bucks at Menards. Use either a dremel or a bastard file to file off some of the teeth, leaving the front tooth. File it down enough that it'll fit in the lockring notches. Boom bish! Fi dolla lockring pliers!
