Our Hi-Leverage Linesman's Pliers require 40 less effort compared to conventional linesman's, side cutting and combination pliers. The forged-in axle of the joint ensures maximum durability and smooth operation. A cross-hatched serrated gripping zone provides firm gripping and pulling for demanding jobs like fencing and engaging heavy-gauge springs. An extra gripping area inside the joint provides an even higher degree of leverage. Cutting capacity is 3/16" for nails & wire pin, and 1/8" for braided wire rope and steel. The tips are tapered and ground flat for deburring conduit and junction boxes, while the flat face even makes a useful hammer in a pinch. With a fish tape puller and universal mandrel crimper. Overall length, 9-1/2"; weight, 15.3 oz.
The 7" Detailing Pliers fit the hand comfortably and are the choice for close-in detail work like installing an outlet, rewiring a lamp or repairing appliances. The tips are 3/8" wide for easy maneuverability and serrated to the tip for a secure grip. The head is tapered for deep access into crowded junction boxes, with shaped edges for deburring. A stepped relieved area in front of the cutter holds small nuts and bolts securely. Weight, 7.5 oz.
