These Swanstrom parallel-action heavy-duty flat-nose pliers offer an extra-secure grip on your workpiece or wire. The pliers are designed for the highest level of strength, durability and comfort; they are ideal for heavy-duty shaping of sheet and wire stock and for creating curves and crisp bends. On flat-nose pliers, both jaws are flat. Use for wider, broader bends in wire, metal-forming, straightening and flattening out metal, making angled bends in metal and holding components. Parallel action pliers close first at the tips, then the rest of the jaws close as the pliers are squeezed. This ensures a strong, even grip on your workpiece.
• The compound joint keeps the jaws parallel as they open and close, and deliver even pressure along the entire length of the jaw, eliminating slipping.
• The knurled jaw stop allows you to achieve even, repeatable pressure with no over-extension of the tool.
• The double-leaf spring holds the pliers open and ready to use until they are squeezed closed and delivers a fast, strong rebound for improved productivity.
• The Soft-Touch™ sure-grip foam handles are longer, wider and ergonomically designed for maximum comfort over extended periods of use. All Swanstrom tool handles are latex-free.
This tool is made of high-carbon, high-chrome alloy steel—the highest quality tool steel—and forged for the best combination of strength and durability. The jaws will not be nicked or deformed with normal use. The dark matte finish prevents eye strain caused by reflective glare and increases the visibility of the workpiece.
Swanstrom Tools manufactures technically advanced cutters and pliers, forged from high chromium, high carbon alloy steel and hardened to 65 HRC. This material, along with a unique proprietary heat treating process and computer-controlled induction edge-hardening maximize tool life.
