New hose clamp pliers easily move hose clamps
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – July 2014- KNIPEX Tools LP adds new hose clamp pliers (85 51 250 A SBA) to its Cobra® line of pliers. The new pliers offering is made especially for opening hose clamps quickly and efficiently. The hose clamp pliers have the same features as Cobra pliers, with the added benefit of universal rotatable tips for tight grabbing.
“The new hose clamp pliers are made to open multiple types of hose clamps, up to 3 inches in diameter,” said Alan Sipe, president and general manager, KNIPEX Tools. “They are perfect for confined areas and provide the ability to reach all angles with its rotatable, universal grip inserts. It’s truly one of a kind.”
The tips of the hose clamps pliers feature a unique design to reduce slipping off the workpiece when opening hose clamps. The pliers are maneuverable for all different angles and can open clamps without great effort due to the high-leverage design.
Distinguished by a push button for fine adjustment, these pliers are quick and comfortable to use. Fast adjustment on the workpiece can be made with the push of a button. With pliers in hand, the user presses down the push-button adjustment and fully opens the jaw on the workpiece. While continuing to push the button, the user slides the lower jaw up until it is positioned on the workpiece, then releases the button and the jaws are locked in place.
The slim head design is ideal for reaching into tight places and the forged, box-joint design provides high stability. The pliers are made from German chrome vanadium electric steel, forged and oil hardened. The new hose clamp pliers are more robust and easier to use on hose clamps.
