Ring opener

Larger gauge captive bead rings (CBRs) often require a ring opener for inserting or removing the bead. Ring openers operate by gently applying outward pressure to the sides of the ring from the interior, allowing the captive bead to be removed without warping or bending the ring. Ring openers can also be used to open the shape of circular barbells to make them more suitable for certain piercings (like triangle piercings).
