KNIPEX Tools Introduces Hog Ring Pliers


Versatile Hog Ring Pliers designed to securely hold and guide rings into proper crimped position.

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. – KNIPEX Tools introduced its Hog Ring Pliers. The pliers are designed for the professional replacement of automotive upholstery to the seat frame and are compatible with all popular upholstery rings or hog rings.

The 7-inch pliers have special grooves in the jaws that are designed to securely hold the ring or clip and guide them into proper crimped position. Other features include a high transmission ratio for easy compression of the hog rings and a closing spring to hold the pliers closed so the ring may be securely positioned before it is compressed.

The Hog Ring Pliers are forged and oil hardened out of special grade German tool steel and feature a chrome-plated finish and multi-component grips for added hand comfort. They are suitable for use on any wide range of fastening projects that deal with fencing, wire, fabric rope and cord.

“Despite the name, the Hog Ring Pliers are built to handle countless projects whether it’s in the garage, out in the yard or out on a boat,” said Todd Shumate, president, KNIPEX Tools.
