KNIPEX Pipe and Connector Pliers
KNIPEX Tools’ new series of Pipe and Connector Pliers is the only of its kind to offer 25 easy adjustments with just the push of a button.
The pliers feature a box-joint design and ergonomic handle geometry for gentle loosening of hoses on nozzles. Other benefits to the new pliers include a soft jaw option to prevent corrosion by not allowing metal from being transferred onto the workpiece. The soft jaw option is an ideal tool for cannon plugs in aviation and electrical connections in high-performance automotive, truck and trailer applications. The rounded jaws grab round pipes and connectors up to 3 5/32 inches in diameter, suitable for tightening and loosening screw connections, plastic pipe fittings and round nuts.
The Pipe and Connector Pliers are forged and oil-hardened out of German, chrome vanadium steel and feature a non-slip plastic coating. The model 81 01 250 has serrated gripping jaws for diameters up to 3 5/32 inches, while the model 81 11 250 has replaceable plastic jaws for soft surfaces with diameters up to 3 inches.
“When it comes to repetitive work where efficiency counts, it’s important to have a tool that will stay in position every time,” said Todd Shumate, executive vice president, KNIPEX Tools. “The Pipe and Connector Pliers are the only pliers of their kind to offer the versatility of 25 different positions with a grip that’s sturdy enough to tackle tough jobs, but gentle enough to protect the workpiece.”
