The present structure is a grip clip mounting tool having both a plier-like head for separating the clip prior to mounting on a shaft and a hollow cylindrical handle for driving the clip down the shaft once the clip is mounted on the shaft. With reference to Figs. 1 and 2, the whole tool shown in Fig. 1 has a plier-like heal 10 which may be used for separating grip clips and a semicircular handle 11 which may accommodate a shaft 14 as the handle is moved, in the direction shown in Fig. 2, to drive the clip 13 which has been separated previously by the plier head down the shaft so as to move the clip against a stop plate 15.
