Designed for work on fuel hoses, vacuum pipes, suction nozzles and many other applications, the series features maximum leverage for opening and closing clamps without much effort. Rotatable tips reliably grip click clamps in all positions.

The 7-inch pliers have special grooves in the jaws that are designed to securely hold the ring or clip and guide them into proper crimped position. Other features include a high transmission ratio for easy compression of the hog rings and a closing spring to hold the pliers closed so the ring may be securely positioned before it is compressed.
The Hog Ring Pliers are forged and oil hardened out of special grade German tool steel and feature a chrome-plated finish and multi-component grips for added hand comfort. They are suitable for use on any wide range of fastening projects that deal with fencing, wire, fabric rope and cord.

The pliers can be used on a variety of clamps up to 2 3/4 inches in diameter and offer leverage to allow clamps to be easily opened and moved without exerting great effort.

The pliers include a special convex contour on one jaw for a highly secure, three-point grip on workpieces. The pulling groove in the gripping area permits small parts, such as nails, pins and bolts, to be held and pulled without slipping.
10-inch bolt cutters designed for versatile, powerful cutting
with significantly less effort and hand force required.
BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – KNIPEX Tools introduced its series of compact XL CoBolt® Bolt Cutters to add to its original 8-inch CoBolt® Mini Bolt Cutters series. The bolt cutters are now 10 inches in length and are available with straight blades or with a notch, which allows for easier cutting of thicker materials.

The micro-structure, laser-etched cutting edges are uniquely designed to stop thicker, round objects from slipping during use. The notch in the blade keeps large cross sections close to the base of the blade for maximum leverage and easier cutting.
