  • Spacing gap between jaws keeps ends of multiple wires in position while twisting them together
  • Crosscut teeth distribute force evenly for sure grip in any direction
  • Side cutter with induction-hardened blades (HRC 58-64) cleanly snips copper, aluminum, and steel wire
  • Lower jaws exert nearly 30% more force than main jaws for closing wire clamps and crimping connectors
  • Wide, gently rounded handle profile with slim, nonslip grips lets you comfortably squeeze as hard as needed

Generously sized with a strong, heavy build, these pliers have flat, squared off jaws and large side cutters for wiring electrical circuits, installing distribution panels, and maintenance and repair of utilities and appliances.

Broad, Flat Jaws

Nearly square, with a straight, flat nose, these jaws can bend thin, flat pieces like metal tabs, mounting brackets, and cable clamps to a crisp right angle.

Gap Spacing Holds Wire Ends

A small gap (1 mm ±0.5 mm) allows the jaw faces to remain nearly parallel while holding the ends of multiple wires, keeping each wire flat and in position while twisting them together.

Crosscut Teeth

Oriented at 120 degrees to each other, the serrations are cut in two passes to form regularly-spaced, diamond-shaped teeth.

 

Grip in All Directions

Unlike straight serrations where the grip strength varies relative to tooth direction, a crosscut pattern grips evenly in any direction.

 

Finer Teeth

Crosscut teeth are smaller and finer than straight serrations, creating a more uniform surface and more contact area for a sure, nonslip bite with less damage to work piece.

 

High-Leverage Lower Jaws

Because they are located below the pivot and a little closer to the fulcrum, the lower jaws can exert about 30% more force than the main jaws, useful for crushing functions like closing wire clamps and crimping connectors.

Clean Cut with Minimal Effort

Machining the blades to an optimized 65-degree angle allows them to be strong yet sharp, producing a satisfyingly smooth, clean cut that requires minimal effort.

INDUCTION HARDENED

After the full pliers have been heat treated, a secondary induction-heating process hardens just the blades to 58-64 HRC, making them extremely durable and able to cut tougher materials.

KNIFE-TO-KNIFE

Comprised of two opposing blades that meet in the center, it is an extremely reliable cutting method, especially for harder wires. For a clean, low-effort cut, it requires a high level of manufacturing expertise to produce the near perfect alignment of the blades. When this cannot be consistently achieved, some manufacturers may turn to a less effective knife-and-anvil design (one knife blade, one blunted blade) that doesn't require such precise alignment.

Cutting Capacities

 

Wide Profile Handles

Generous in overall size, the handles have an extra wide, gently rounded profile that creates a large, smooth contact surface. This spreads out the pressure against your hand so you can comfortably squeeze as hard as needed.

 

Lean and Practical Grips

Single-layer vinyl grips offer a bit of comfortable cushion and provide a smooth, yet nonslip surface. They're slim, not thick and bulky, so they stay out of the way when space is tight and are always easy to handle, even with gloves on.

Non-absorbing and resistant to most common fuels, lubricants, and cleaners. Won't get soft or sticky over time. Easy to wipe clean.
