PLIERS

The extensive Teng Tools range includes pliers for most applications. In addition, the range includes the usual side cutters, combination pliers and slip joint pliers as well as a number
of cable pliers, side cutters for cable ties, frapping pliers, nail nippers, electronic pliers, precision shears and tweezers.
Handles are available in two models to suit the user: slim rubber dipped as well as ergonomic bi-material handles.

• Steel alloy with CrMo gives a greater cutting capacity.
• The cutting capacity is laser marked next to the cutting edge – makes it easy to see which pliers you need to choose.
• Slim design gives better accessibility.
• The total length is designed to provide maximum leverage for each pair of pliers, irrespective of whether they are combination, water pump, flat or circlip pliers.
• Two handle types to choose from on many models – a slim rubber dipped handle or an ergonomic bi-material handle for a more comfortable grip.

• The ergonomic handle is wider where needed to support the palm of your hand when using greater force. However, it is also narrower, lighter and less bulky where needed.
• The cutting edges on cutting pliers are especially angled to suit different materials and application areas.
• The stripping pliers feature an integrated spring function.
• The new slip joint pliers have a button for quick setting of the jaw opening.

DO’S AND DONT’S

• USE THE RIGHT TYPE FOR CUTTING
If the plier does not cut the material without excessive force then use a stronger plier or a different type of tool. For example, standard side cutters are for cutting electrical wire not split pins.

• USE THE RIGHT TYPE FOR GRIPPING
Different types of pliers are designed for different types of gripping – make sure the plier selected grips securely and comfortably.

• USE THE RIGHT SIZE OF PLIER
The longer the handle the more power or torque can be applied when cutting or gripping.

• KEEP IT CLEAN AND DRY
After use always check the tools are clean and dry before putting them away, this will help to avoid problems such as corrosion and moving parts seizing or becoming tight.

• DO NOT USE THE WRONG PLIER
If the plier does not grip tightly and securely or does not cut with reasonable rather than excessive force choose another plier or tool.

• DO NOT USE ON LIVE ELECTRICS
If you have to work on electrical or electronic equipment disconnect the power supply wherever possible and always use insulated tools even if you believe that the power is off.
