Muscle man with the clever bend

The Knipex CoBolt 71 21 200 compact bolt cutters with angled shape for flush cutting.

The CoBolt 71 21 200 with the 20° angled pliers head has been designed for all jobs where you need to cut as close as possible to the surface below. Protruding nails, screws, wire or strands with diameters up to 6 mm can be cut flush thanks to its sophisticated design with joint bar on one side. This means it offers enough space for gripping even in confined work situations.

Small tool, big impact

Those used to working with standard bolt cutters will appreciate how user-friendly the CoBolt 71 21 200 is. Thanks to their practical size of 200 mm and low weight of less than 400 g, they are a powerful partner in demanding situations, such as when working above head height. Even the hardest wire is no problem, and they master piano wire up to a diameter of 3.6 mm reliably. When cutting bolts, nails and rivets up to a diameter of 6 mm (in the case of soft material), you benefit from maximum power and convenient handling.

This high cutting performance is the result of long-standing engineering experience. The precision cutting edges made of chrome-vanadium high performance steel are induction hardened and therefore guarantee the greatest cutting edge hardness. The particularly efficient lever action mechanism guarantees an extremely favourable lever ratio with simultaneously low friction. The CoBolt reinforces the hand force used to grip the handles 35 times over.

Knipex quality

The 71 21 200 CoBolt compact bolt cutters are manufactured in the Knipex factory in Wuppertal-Cronenberg using quality materials. As with the other models of pliers from the Knipex think tank, they stand for top quality and therefore - when used correctly - also for exceptional durability. Their ergonomic shape furthermore means they offer the best possible conditions for gentle and safe use.

All-round bolt cutters for everyday and special tasks

The precision cutting edges of the Knipex CoBolt are ideal for frequent use on different materials. They manage nails, rivets and bolts as reliably as the hardest wire (piano wire).

The versatile compact bolt cutters are manufactured from high performance chrome vanadium steel hardened in multiple stages. Thanks to their first-class machining, they are extremely durable and almost indestructible if used properly.

Useful angle

The angled head of the CoBolt offers up to 60 mm of room for gripping, making it ideal for poorly accessible areas.

Flush cutting

Compared to the straight models, the angled CoBolt permits materials to be cut flush – as with the entire series, using 35-fold manual force.

Small all-rounder

The CoBolt is a true all-rounder. With its efficient joint design, it cuts through metal tapes as precisely as nails or wire.

Small muscle man

Through thick and thin, through hard and soft materials: the CoBolt is suitable for soft cross-sections of up to 6 mm and even cuts through piano wire up to 3.6 mm – and is just 200 mm long.
