Diagonal-Cutting Pliers

Diagonal-Cutting Pliers

Short jaws with angled, or diagonal, cutting edges allow these tools to cut close to surfaces and objects. Also known as wire cutters, dikes, and side cutters, diagonal cutting pliers can approach the workpiece from the side for hard-to-access areas and are frequently used in construction, repair, and manufacturing applications for cutting objects such as cables, wires, rope, screws, bolts, zip ties, and nails.

General Purpose

A popular tool for almost any industry, these diagonal cutters are well suited for cutting a wide range of objects in everyday tasks.

Long Reach & High Leverage

When cutting through hard materials such as piano wire, these high-leverage diagonal cutters provide more cutting force and reach than standard diagonal pliers. Long handles and a pivot point that is close to the cutting jaw reduce the amount of effort required for cutting and extend the reach of the tool.

Angled Head

Get better access to hard-to-reach workpieces and protect your hands from dragging on cutting surfaces with these angled-head diagonal cutters. The head is set at an angle to the tool body to allow the tool to cut at an angle.

Non-Sparking

Made from nonferrous materials to help minimize the risk of the tool generating a spark while in use, nonsparking diagonal cutters are useful in environments that contain flammable solvents, liquids, vapors, dusts, or residues. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has developed best practice guidelines for certain chemicals and processes that include choosing nonsparking tools.

Static Control Handles

Protect hands from accidental static shock and avoid damage to static-sensitive components by choosing diagonal cutters with static control handles. 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.
