Klein makes "slip joint hose clamp pliers" that I use.
They have notches cut out in the tips so the spring doesn't slip out. They're like 15-20 bucks.
I like Channel Locks (w/o the grooves/teeth). Mine are made by Cooper Tools (orange handles).
Thank you, OP, for reminding me to deal with this irritation - only going to get worse eventually as the 90% law kicks in.
I'm going with FrostyBeer's Klein slip joint hose clamp pliers and replacing with hose clamps as I go...
