KNIPEX Tools launches gripping pliers series


By CRM Staff

Cleveland, Ohio — October 23, 2017 — KNIPEX Tools has announced the launch of its series of gripping pliers, which features universal, long-nose and welding gripping pliers.

The 10-inch universal gripping pliers feature a unique, pivoting bottom jaw, which the company said automatically adjusts to any workpiece in the field, including square, round, hex and flat materials. The pliers also feature toggle lever action for a high clamping pressure grip, which KNIPEX said makes the pliers “ideal” for secure, one-handed operation.

The 8-inc long-nose gripping pliers are bright zinc-plated and feature narrow, long jaws at a slim width of 1/4-inch. The pliers are specially designed for difficult to reach areas, and also feature a non-serrated gripping area for pinching off hoses.

Meanwhile, the KNIPEX 11-inch welding gripping pliers feature movable jaws with clamps for cumbersome workpieces and sections with high ridges up to 1 1/2-inch. The maximum gripping capacity of the pliers is 3 17/32-inch.

“The heavy-duty KNIPEX gripping pliers series are designed to deliver powerful results, no matter the angle or workpiece,” said Todd Shumate, president of KNIPEX Tools. “With their heavy-duty design, unique jaws and extensive gripping abilities, all three pliers will make a great addition to any tool box.”

All KNIPEX gripping pliers have a heavy-duty design with an adjustment screw and release lever for ease of use. The pliers feature one-hand operation and a toggle lever action for high clamping pressure. The body of the Gripping Pliers is made from high-strength rolled steel and the gripping jaws are forged out of chrome vanadium electric steel.
