I saw the pliers at Lowes in the fence parts area. But I just did a seat repair on my VW that needed hog rings but in a VERY hard to reach spot. Under the seat cover to the foam, not to the seat frame.
My Ace hardware store had the pliers too but in the pet supplies they have a rabbit or pet fence repair tool. Similar to hog rings but it uses flat J clips. The clip goes in the clip pliers and when you squeeze the J gets wrapped around curling back and makes a nice rolled ring.
