VDE safety in a set: quality basic kit, also when out and about

Three pairs of VDE tested pliers for holding, cutting and positioning

Insulated combination pliers, diagonal cutters and needle nose pliers have become classics in the Knipex range for good reason. Basic operations such as holding, gripping, cutting and positioning can be managed well using these three pairs of forged and oil-hardened pliers. The quality chrome-plating offers good corrosion resistance. A collar has been shaped at the front of all pliers handles to stop hands slipping.

Good as supplementary tools or suitable as a spare set of tools when out and about

The 00 20 12 Electrical Set provides sensible basic tool equipment for work on electrical installations. This is useful, for example, when electricians and fitters are out and about and only want to take the tools they need for frequently recurring work processes. The Electrical Set is also useful for electricians who only work occasionally on or near live parts and who therefore do not need extensive VDE pliers equipment.

Safety, usefulness and quality in a set

Knipex focuses on safety, benefits to users and quality. With the VDE combination pliers, it is possible to hold and powerfully cut live flat and round material. The VDE diagonal cutters are impressive by virtue of their high cutting performance with little manual force and a long tool life. On the VDE needle nose pliers, the elastic tips on the half round, long jaws are also extremely durable; their cutting edges are hardened to 61 HRC. Knipex has assembled these qualities in the 00 20 12 Electrical Set: for use, quality and safety.
