Work well with clamps up to a diameter of 70 mm, even where space is restricted
Excellent accessibility also under unfavourable conditions
All types and sizes of spring hose clamps up to a diameter of 70 mm can be safely opened, held and moved over hoses using the Knipex 85 51 250 AF spring hose clamp pliers: from the large spring hose clamp on a charge air hose through to a delicate clamp on a pump in the engine compartment.
The spring hose clamp pliers are slim and adapt to the situation at hand using the rotating jaw inserts.
Apply safely from all angles: rotating jaw inserts
Spring hose clamps are often installed at an angle, e.g. in engine compartments. The rotating universal inserts have been developed for work from any angle. With these spring hose clamp pliers, even clamps in a position that is not installation-friendly can be reached safely from all angles. The spring hose clamp can also be twisted in relation to the pliers while under tension.
Little effort when opening – no physical effort when holding
Due to the adjustable pliers joint, a jaw opening of up to 80 mm is possible. A clamping range of over 40 mm provides enough room to manoeuvre with all sizes of spring hose clamps. The leverage on the Knipex 85 51 250 AF is very high thanks to the long handles, enabling very large spring hose clamps to be opened safely with little effort and well-measured manual force. The locking device, which can be opened with one hand, takes over the holding of the closed clamp.
