KNIPEX Tools introduced new plastic inserts for its Pipe and Connector Pliers series (81 11 250). The innovative plastic inserts now consist of two component materials: soft blue outer layer and firm red inner layer. The Pipe and Connector Pliers series offers 25 easy adjustments with just the push of a button. The Pipe and Connector Pliers feature a sturdy box-joint design. The dual component inserts are designed for gently loosening hoses on nozzles. The pliers include the soft jaw to prevent corrosion by not allowing metal from being transferred onto the workpiece. The soft jaw is an ideal tool for cannon plugs in aviation and electrical connections in high-performance automotive, truck and trailer applications.
