KENOSHA, Wis. — Snap-on Tools is introducing new plyers that the company says addresses "foreign object damage concerns" while still giving technicians precision.
The Snap-on P-Series Cutting Pliers "feature added staked screw design to relieve foreign object damage concerns." The new design also includes an internal torsion spring intended to return the pliers to the open position, while making them easier to grip.
"Because the plier joints are precision-ground," Snap-On said, "opening and closing friction is reduced and the tools operate smoothly without lubrication."
The new series includes diagonal cutting pliers, end cutting pliers and needle nose holding pliers for a variety of applications. The Kenosha-based company is selling individual pliers as well as sets.
