For cutting, wire stripping, crimping and shortening: the multifunctional pliers

An all-round tool with several useful aspects

The Knipex 97 21 215 crimping pliers are always in their element when the full range of tools is not available: in a professional and semi-professional environment, e.g. for smaller projects and tasks on the car, in the camper van, on an airfield for model aircraft. Thanks to the screwed, smooth-running and stable joint, all functions on these crimping pliers can be operated well. Flat and light at 224 g, you can easily take them with you in a jacket pocket or the outside pocket on work trousers.

Cutting and insulating fine wire, shortening threaded pins and screws

These universal crimping pliers can also be deployed before crimping: e.g. for cutting and stripping cable and wire. The suitably dimensioned openings prevent damage to the strands during wire stripping. A further function is available. As these crimping pliers are manufactured from high strength special steel, threaded pins and screws made of soft material can be accurately cut to length, while the thread is protected.

Crimping of insulated plug connectors and cable connectors

Crimping insulated plug connectors and cable connectors is an art, and depends on using the right amount of force. There must be enough for the cable in the cable connectors and plug connectors to be held securely, which is important to prevent spark formation and faults caused by loose connections, however plug connectors and cable connectors must not be crushed, look unsightly and become unusable due to damaged insulation. Insulated plug connectors and cable connectors can be crimped well using the Knipex 97 21 215 crimping pliers.
