Knipex Tools LP has introduced a 7 ¼-inch size to its series of spring hose clamp pliers. The company says the new size is easy to maneuver in tight spaces and ideal for small engine applications.
This new pair of pliers features the same rotating tips as Knipex’s 10-inch hose clamp pliers and 10-inch locking hose clamp pliers.
The company says the hose clamp pliers feature 15 positions that ensure a precise fit to suit the most diverse clamp sizes. The pliers have a 2-inch working capacity and the additional feature of serrated gripping jaws to easily loosen tight hoses. A push button allows for fine adjustment.
The slim head design is ideal for reaching into tight places and the forged, box-joint design provides high stability. The built-in pinch guard protects against blood blisters and finger and hand pinching.
The pliers are made from German chrome vanadium electric steel, forged and oil hardened.
“With the newest addition to our line of hose clamp pliers, removing hose clamps has never been easier for small engine applications,” says Todd Shumate, president of Knipex Tools. “With their rotating tips, Knipex’s hose clamp pliers make it quick and simple to maneuver between different angles and positions, even in confined areas.”
Knipex Tools LP is the North American sales and marketing organization of Knipex‐Werk, which is based in Wuppertal, Germany. For more information, visit knipex-tools.com.
