Utilizing the mechanical advantage of an innovative compound action joint, GearWrench PivotForce Compound Action Pliers require 40 percent less force to cut than regular pliers, according to the company. The unique design delivers a more efficient transition of power from the handle to the jaws, enabling users to make the same cuts with less effort. The dipped handles provide added comfort and have an easy-to-clean gloss finish. The pliers also meet or exceed all applicable ASME specifications. They feature induction-hardened cutting edges for enhanced product life. They are designed with standard bevel edges for general wire cutting. The pliers are available in long nose and diagonal cutting variations; the long nose model has a machined, crosschecked jaw pattern, which assists in gripping and twisting in any direction. The pliers are made of forged steel for superior strength and durability, and have an anti-rust coating to guard against corrosion.
