Knipex combines capabilities of pliers and wrench in one mini tool
Knipex Tools LP has introduced a tool that combines the capabilities of pliers and wrench. The company says its five-inch-long Pliers Wrench Mini eliminates the need for SAE or metric wrenches.
The company says the new Pliers Wrench has a full-surface gripping capacity of up to 7/8 inches that grips 10-times greater than a human hand can grip. Its smooth, parallel jaws will not round off bolts or nuts and will not damage the workpiece.
The Pliers Wrench has a push-button adjustment and unique ratcheting action, so the tool stays in place for fast turns on repetitive tasks, according to the company. The tool is forged and oil-hardened, constructed from German, chrome-vanadium electric steel. Additional sizes are available up to 16 inches.
The company says the tool’s small size and powerful utility make it the right choice for plant maintenance, automotive, hydraulic piping, utility companies, food and bottling industries and countless other industrial and residential applications. Specifically, the Pliers Wrench Mini is suited for pipe constructions, pneumatic-sensitive union joints and precision mechanics with ultra-fine union joints.
“Don’t let its small size fool you, because this little tool can perform with surprisingly great strength,” says Alan Sipe, president and general manager. “As a company that keeps our customers’ hands in mind, the Pliers Wrench Mini was designed to get the job done without lugging around extra, clunky tools, this one fits perfectly in your pocket.”
Knipex Tools LP is the North American sales and marketing organization of Knipex‐Werk and is located in Arlington Heights, Ill. Knipex‐Werk, Wuppertal, Germany, says it is the largest manufacturer of professional quality pliers in the world, producing up to 65,000 pliers per day, or up to 325,000 pliers each week.
