Whether it’s for a holiday or birthday, this Tools Under 30 Dollars Gift Guide Series shows you important, yet somewhat uncommon, tools that any gearhead would want.

Today, let’s talk about Hose Removal Tools.


Rubber hoses have a way of fusing themselves to the end of fittings, connectors, and nipples.

And when we say “fusing,” we mean these hoses create some sort of weird magical bond akin to Thor’s hammer or King Arthur’s sword—they simply won’t budge.

So removing ancient, grungy hoses is a real pain. And no matter what you try to wedge in there, without the right tools, you’ll probably end up tearing the hose or damaging the fitting.

That’s why Hose Removal Tools exist. They’re basically specially-designed picks that are strategically curved and angled to help you pry off crusty hoses. And they really work too—making a frustrating job much more bearable.

A lot of folks don’t know about these tools, so they’re often a smart gift to give and receive. Better still, there’s a good chance you can find a set for under 30 bucks.
