Muscle man with the clever bend

The Knipex 71 22 200 CoBolt compact bolt cutters with angled shape for flush cutting.

The CoBolt 71 22 200 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 22 200 is. Thanks to its practical size of 200 mm and low weight of less than 400 g, it is a powerful partner in demanding situations, such as when working above head height. Even the hardest wire is no problem, and it masters piano wire up to a diameter of 3.6 mm reliably.

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.

Integrated opening spring protects hand muscles

While working, the well-designed opening spring on the CoBolt 71 22 200 opens the cutters repeatedly and automatically, thereby saving many small hand movements that might tire and irritate joint muscles. In particular this substantially eases work above head height. At the same time, the handles with multi-component grips are non-slip and guarantee they are pleasant to use even for long periods. The two materials with different degrees of hardness ensure an optimum distribution of acting forces

Knipex quality: the 71 22 200 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.

Brief overview

Powerful cutting due to efficient joint design

Versatile helper for diverse applications

The Knipex 71 22 200 CoBolt is a flexible and always reliable all-rounder. It manages difficult tasks such as cutting metal tapes just as accurately as cutting nails and all types of wire – up to a diameter of 6 mm.

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

Several applications

The CoBolt is suitable for soft cross-sections of up to 6 mm and even cuts through piano wire up to 3.6 mm. This makes it a versatile helper.
