Pliers for gripping, positioning and cutting
The Knipex 25 05 160 which is pointed at the front combines several qualities. The needle nose pliers are suitable on the one hand for the fine, measured gripping and holding of components, and on the other hand for the powerful cutting of cable and wire. The shape of the cutting edges produces an efficient bite type cut.
Thanks to additional induction hardening of the blades, the Knipex 25 05 160 (cutting edge hardness approx. 61 HRC) can be used for the powerful cutting of cable, soft, medium-hard (cutting capacity Ø 2.5 mm) and even hard wire (cutting capacity Ø 1.6 mm).
Stable needle nose pliers, also when twisting and during powerful cutting
The precision tips of the Knipex 25 05 160 are elastic and therefore remain stable when twisted. Users can easily find the optimal amount of manual force to use. Larger components can be held firmly, while smaller components can be gripped gently using the right amount of force. Little effort is required when cutting because the cutting edges near the joint of the pliers are in a favourable position for transmitting manual force to the material to be cut.
Work well even in confined spaces
These needle nose pliers are very suitable for working in confined spaces, because they are pointed at the front. Components and wire can also be gripped and held where space is tight, which is an advantage in house installations and repairs, for example. The Knipex 25 05 160 has quality chrome plating. The chrome layer offers good corrosion resistance: useful when the pliers are also used outside or are kept permanently in a service vehicle where temperature changes can cause condensation on the tool.
