Pliers for professional users from the electrical/installation trade

VDE tested: for installation and assembly tasks, as well as cutting

These forged, oil-hardened and insulated stork beak pliers with multi-component grip are ideal for installation, insertion and assembly, as well as powerful cutting. The cutting edges of the pliers are shaped to produce a pierced cut. The Knipex 26 26 200 also cuts hard wires.

Dimensionally stable under torsion – very powerful when cutting

The flexible precision tips made of vanadium electric steel are torsion-resistant and angled 40°. The pliers allow you to control the manual force. The cutting edge position near the joint favours the transmission of force. This results in impressive cutting values for medium-hard wire of up to 3.2 Ømm and for hard wire of up to 2.2 Ømm.

Components and wires are easily accessible in control cabinets, machines or electric motors

Whether connecting wires to conductor terminals, in junction boxes or in control cabinet construction – the extra-long tips of the VDE tested stork beak pliers from Knipex 26 26 200 allow you to work efficiently, especially when space is tight. Their qualities are appreciated whenever cables and wires need to be held, inserted or cut.
