WHAT KIND OF SNAP RING PLIERS TO R/R MASTER CYLINDER CLIP

I know it sound dumb. But what kind of snap ring pliers have you used to remove the snap ring clip in the 81 master cylinder for the plunger/piston to be removed. I have 2 pliers and neither will reach down in there to get clip.
thanks

I picked up a pair of right angle snap ring pliers when I was working on a CB 750. They also worked on the oldwing when I rebuilt the master cylinders.

The clip isn't very far in to the master, yet I broke my right angle pliers on it. Even after soaking in Blaster for a couple of days it was that frozen. I ended up just grinding down the tips of some needle nose to fit the holes and that finally got it.
