Bent Nosed Pliers

Needle nose pliers shouldn’t be used for any brute force techniques but are often useful for smaller fasteners, tight spaces and manipulating spring clips. As with Combination pliers the jaws have a serrated surface and usually a cutter ahead of the pivot point.

Use to...

• Grip small fasteners from above.

• Grip in cramped space.

• Grip spring clips.

Buying Tips

• Look for thick comfortable handles.

• Unbranded items may have weak serrations.

• Unbranded items may have weak cutter blades.

Safety Tips

• Always wear eye protection.

• Consider impact protection.
