Squeeze the handles of these plier-style hole punches to make holes or raised tabs in a variety of materials, from soft rubber and plastic to harder metals.
Also known as revolving punch pliers, these tools have a rotating head with multiple punches in different sizes. Rotate the head to the desired size, place your workpiece in the tool's jaws, and then squeeze the handles together to create a hole. Revolving punches are commonly used to make holes in leather, plastic, canvas, cardboard, and other light or soft materials.
Use snap-lock punches to create raised tabs in pieces of metal or plastic to join the pieces together. After making tabs in your material, snap them together for a secure hold. These punches are commonly used to connect sheet metal, duct, and plastic siding.
