- On basis of DIN 5256 C and DIN 5256 C, but bent 45°
- Pliers body and tips: chrome vanadium steel, forged, oil-hardened
Firmly grip, dismantle and fit difficult to reach internal circlips
Accurate and stable, forged tips for an ideal hold
The precision of the pliers tips is crucial when fitting and dismantling circlips, because the tips have very little room for manoeuvre in the circlip installation holes. They must overcome the ring tension and securely hold the circlip after removing or before inserting it.
High demands are placed on the accuracy and stability of the pliers tips. With the Knipex 44 31 J02, the handle and tips are forged in one piece, which produces correspondingly high durability. The very accurately twisted tips are also machined so they slant inwards slightly. As a result, the circlips are held tightly on the pliers tips.
Reinforced, measured manual force precisely into the installation holes
For reasons of accuracy, manual force must be applied to the component in an accurate, well-measured manner. This applies especially to pliers for circlips, because the circlips are subjected to considerable pressure when installed and removed. Thanks to quality machining, balanced tool geometry and precise joint, manual force reaches the circlip on the Knipex 44 31 J02 in a way that enables the user to work in the best way: accurately, and gentle on hands.
Good access to concealed circlips – pliers at a 45° angle
Reliable circlip pliers like the Knipex 44 31 J02 noticeably simplify work. They are very narrow at the front and at a 45° angle for ideal access also to circlips that are difficult to reach. The pliers sit comfortably in the hand, can be positioned accurately in the circlip installation holes and hold the circlips firmly. Working with first-class circlips pliers such as the Knipex 44 31 J02 saves a great deal of time, as anyone who has tried to extract a circlip from a drilled hole using makeshift tools will know. Having to search the workshop for a circlip that has sprung off because the tips of poorly machined circlip pliers have failed to hold it well can take a long time. With the Knipex 44 31 J02, every circlip and every hand movement sits properly.
