Actually, this "ring" is a "C-Clip, or an "E-Ring", not a snap ring that has little holes in the ear. There is no specific plier for this as it is commonly removed/installed with a simple set of needle-nosed pliers.

A tip, if you have a small piece of rubberized magnet like commonly used for those magnetic business cards, tape a small piece on the pliers so it it close to the clip being gripped. When the clip is removed it will stick to the magnet, even if the plier grip is released. These magnetic business cards are also great for keeping track of small parts (if they are ferrous) and keeps them in one place.
