The multifunctional tool for electricians
For cutting cable, for wire stripping, deburring, bending, gripping and crimping
Due to their many functions, these universal pliers mean there is no need to constantly change tools. Just one tool is adequate for the most important, recurring work steps in electrical installation.
With integrated pawl
The activated pawl holds the cutting edges closed while other functions remain in place. With this intelligent closing mechanism, you can grip without opening the pliers. The cutting edge remains closed and protected.
Versatile tool for professional users
The gripping surfaces of the installation pliers are smooth at the tip, enabling single conductors to be held and positioned without being damaged. There are profiled gripping surfaces and a pipe grip for gripping flat and round material. The induction hardened precision cutting edges produce clean cuts on Cu and Al cables up to Ø 15 mm. Thanks to their non-slip multi-component grips, the installation pliers are safe and comfortable to use.
The electrical installation pliers save time, space and weight. At 200 mm long, they fit in any tool bag and with a weight of just 280 g they are light weight – especially compared to a number of individual tools.
Knipex quality and engineering services – Made in Germany
Two aspects are vital to the quality of a tool: the performance and durability. At Knipex, pliers are developed from the point of view of the user, and focus on their direct application. Knipex electrical installation pliers replace several tools. Uses are equally diverse – and last for several years of tough work. We forge our tools from quality materials, machine them with high precision on modern machinery and harden them carefully with multiple stage heat treatment. Every pair of Knipex pliers represents more than 130 years of specialist know-how.
