Securely grip, dismantle and fit internal circlips that are difficult to reach
Accurate and stable, forged tips for an ideal hold
Very precise pliers tips are required when fitting and removing circlips, as they have very little room for manoeuvre in the installation holes of the circlips. The pliers tips must overcome the high ring tension and hold the circlip securely after removal or before insertion. The Knipex 44 31 J12 has been machined with the necessary degree of accuracy. 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 tip.
Reinforced, measured manual force precisely into the installation holes
Accurate work with circlips depends on an effective reinforcement and well-measured transmission of manual force to the circlips. Stress is applied to circlips when installed and removed. This must be overcome without overstretching the circlips. Thanks to quality machining, balanced tool geometry and precise joint, manual force reaches the circlip on the Knipex 44 31 J12 a way that enables the user to work in the best way: accurately, and gentle on hands.
Good access also where space is restricted: pliers at a 45° angle at the front
The Knipex 44 31 J12 is very narrow at the front and at a 45° angle for ideal access also to circlips that are difficult to reach. These reliable circlip pliers noticeably simplify work. They 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 J12 saves a great deal of time, as anyone who has tried to extract a circlip from a drilled hole using makeshift tools will know. If this succeeds at all, it takes time. 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 also take a long time. With the Knipex 44 31 J12, every circlip and every hand movement sits properly.
