It's time for new bearings for my rear hope pro 2 trials hub. I have not worked on these hubs before so I watched a couple of videos and it looked pretty straight forward. However, when I went to pull the hub apart I see that my hub has a "barrel circlip" in the driver that was not shown in either of the videos.

Why does Hope use a circlip on the trials hub and not on their other hubs?

Anyway, I cannot remove the circlip with regular needle nose pliers and was hoping someone could recommend the right tool for the job. E.g. Would these park tool circlip pliers work?

Thanks for your help.
