With a tapered nose that is bent at an angle to the tool body, bent-nose pliers can move around obstructions and maneuver between tightly spaced objects. These tools are ideal for bending and forming fine wire and are commonly used in electronics manufacturing and repair.
A good choice for everyday applications, these general purpose bent nose pliers can grip, bend, turn, or clamp a wide range of objects.
Reduce risk of electrical shock when working near energized circuits by choosing bent nose pliers with an insulated handle. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) includes choosing insulated tools in its best practice guidelines for electrical safety in the workplace.
Static Control Handles
Use bent nose pliers with static control handles to protect hands from accidental static shock and avoid damage to static-sensitive components. The handles are coated with a nonconductive material to safely dissipate static, making these tools well suited for working on aircraft and avionics components, electronic equipment, and other sensitive instruments that are prone to static buildup.
The long handles on these bent nose pliers provide better access in hard-to-reach areas than general use styles.
With multiple pairs of bent nose pliers in a variety of sizes, these sets will help keep you prepared for a range of tasks.
