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

An all-round tool with several useful aspects

On an airfield for model aircraft, in a hobby room, on the car, in the camper van: in a professional and semi-professional environment, the Knipex 97 21 215 B crimping pliers are ideal. Especially for smaller projects and tasks when the full range of tools is not available. Flat and pleasantly light at 290 g, you can easily take them with you in a jacket pocket or the outside pocket on work trousers. Thanks to the screwed, smooth-running and stable joint, all functions on these crimping pliers can be operated well. The multi-component grips are comfortable to use.

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.

Reliable crimping of non-insulated, open plug connectors

Crimping (crushing) open plug connectors is an art, and depends on using the right amount of force. There must be enough for the cable in the plug connector to be held securely, which is important to prevent spark formation and faults caused by loose connections, however the delicate plug connectors in the cable organiser must not be crushed and look unsightly. Open, non-insulated plug connectors can be crimped well using the Knipex 97 21 215 B crimping pliers.
