Pliers

Pliers are hand tools designed for a wide range of applications and can be used for a wide variety of tasks to grip, lock, twist, hold, bend or cut materials like wires. Some pliers feature also a locking mechanism to securely hold the material in place, without the need to re-adjust.


Pliers are generally made from chrome vanadium steel, carbon steel, or other hardened steel alloys to ensure optimum durability, allow heavy-duty use without compromising the finish and prevent corrosion.


What are the most common types of pliers?


  • Cutters - occasionally called wire cutters, they are designed for cutting through wires and cabling and are available in variants like side cutting, end cutting and diagonal cutting

  • Longnose pliers - needle-nose pliers or snipe-nosed pliers, are suitable for multi-purpose tasks like bending and crimping and can be used in anything ranging from electrical work to jewellery making.

  • Combination pliers - designed to be both a functional pair of either round- nose, long nose or flat nose pliers with a built-in cutter that works with multiple applications

  • End cutter pliers - are designed to cut through or twist materials, such as wires, springs, nails, rivets and bolts

  • Waterpump pliers - occasionally referred to as a pipe wrench, are extendable and adjustable, which means they can adapt to fit almost any irregular shape due to their wide jaw, making them a versatile tool to have

  • Circlip pliers - a unique type of pliers that are used to install and remove internal circlips from a range of appliances

Who uses pliers?


Pliers are commonly used by professionals like electricians, plumbers, carpenters, gas engineers, car mechanics and DIY enthusiasts.


Note: If you are working with live or energised currents, ensure your pliers are VDE approved to ensure user safety.
