A hacksaw is just a type of saw where you can change the blade. Vice grips are a type of pliers that can lock in place. Just ask someone at any hardware store Smile

If it isnt teriblly thick plastic you could use a box cutter or high qulity utility knife just put somthing straight next to where you are going to cut also a dremal tool might work.
