NEW PITBULL PLIERS
GEARWRENCH says automotive and industrial mechanics have a new best friend
Pliers are among the hand tools that automotive and industrial mechanics use every day, but that doesn’t mean they have to be mundane.
Instead, GEARWRENCH says it is proud to unleash its new line of PitBull Pliers designed with features and functionality that it says will quickly turn them into a mechanic’s best friend.
“Professional technicians we talked to said that the most important things they looked for in their pliers are grip and cutting ability,” GEARWRENCH Product Manager, Steven Tokouzis, said.
“We know they’re cutting day in and day out and we know that grip is critical to getting the job done. Those two goals are at the core of everything we put into our PitBull Pliers.”
Tongue and Groove Pliers
The PitBull K9 Tongue and Groove Pliers with dipped handles feature the innovative K9 jaw system with teeth that can grip and turn with up to a 35-degree offset angle. GEARWRENCH says the narrow profile provides 40 percent greater access than the competition.
GEARWRENCH says professional technicians can now cut with 35 percent less force thanks to the pivot-forward design and laser-hardened cutting edges of all four GEARWRENCH PitBull Solid-Joint Pliers (linesman, long-nose, universal and diagonal).
It says the innovative designs also translate to 50 percent longer cutting life, meaning techs aren’t replacing their pliers over and over once they’ve gone dull. All four styles are available in dipped handles for easy cleaning.
• Linesman: designed with a cross-hatched jaw for better grip, a fish tape channel for flat steel fish tapes and a reaming head for deburring pipes.
• Long-Nose: designed with a cross-hatched jaw for better grip, a fastener grip area to turn nuts and fasteners, and a nail/wire holder right on the jaws.
• Universal: designed with a cross-hatched jaw for better grip, a crimping joint for crimping non-insulated connectors, and a fastener grip area to turn nuts and fasteners.
• Diagonal: designed with a 20-degree angle for flush cutting and a reaming head for deburring pipes.
All PitBull Pliers feature pinch-stop design to prevent blood blisters brought on by pinching handles.
