Named for their long, tapered nose, these pliers can hold, twist, and bend wire and small objects in a range of applications, including electronics manufacturing and repair. Their slim nose provides good reach into small recessed areas, and the inside surface of the jaws may be smooth, for reduced risk of damaging the workpiece, or serrated, for improved grip.
Suitable for a wide range of everyday applications, these long-nose pliers have a range of features to improve productivity and efficiency during use.
Move more easily in recessed and confined spaces and maneuver around obstructions with these bent long-nose pliers. They are well suited for working on electronics and other small parts.
Also known as duckbill pliers, these tools have a long, flat nose with wide tips. They provide good access to tightly spaced wires and components.
Choose nonsparking long-nose pliers for working in environments that contain flammable solvents, liquids, vapors, dusts, or residues. Made from nonferrous materials, nonsparking tools help minimize the risk of the tool generating a spark while in use. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has developed best practice guidelines for certain chemicals and processes that include choosing nonsparking tools.
Long-nose pliers with insulated handles help reduce risk of electrical shock when working on wires near energized circuits. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) includes choosing insulated tools in its best practice guidelines for electrical safety in the workplace.
Static Control Handles
The handles are coated with a nonconductive material to safely dissipate static, reducing risk of accidental static shock and helping to prevent damage to static-sensitive components. Long-nose pliers with static control handles are well suited for working on aircraft and avionics components, electronic equipment, and other sensitive instruments that are prone to static buildup.
Squeeze the handles to lock the pliers onto the workpiece like a clamp, and press the trigger on the handle to release the tool's grip when work is complete. Once they're locked on, long-nose locking pliers reduce hand fatigue by eliminating the need for continual squeezing pressure and leave the operator's hands free to do something else. The pliers have a mechanism for adjusting the amount of clamping force applied by the tool when gripping and turning objects. Press the trigger on the handle to quickly release the tool from the workpiece.
Containing multiple long-nose pliers in a range of sizes, these sets help ensure you have the right tool for nearly any job.
