Needle nose pliers are basic tools used in a wide range of fields, from personal DIY to general business.
Although they have less pinching power than pliers or combination pliers, they are suitable for use in tight spaces. In addition, the wide variety of tip shapes allow the selection of a tool that best suits the uses of the tool.
The lineup includes a wide variety of types, from relatively inexpensive products to high-end products, making it possible to select the right one for your hands.
Needle nose pliers have long, slender tips with a fine groove cut to ensure that the pliers bite into the object to be plied. Therefore, needle nose pliers are widely used for heavy-duty applications such as assembly and maintenance of industrial products, as well as for personal use such as carpentry.
For example, they are used for tasks such as gripping objects in narrow areas, processing thin metal wires, and mounting and dismounting small parts.
Some pliers have a curved tip, which allows them to process or grip objects perpendicular to the insertion direction.
One of the main features of needle nose pliers are that they are suitable for pulling out and pushing in small parts and for processing various types of wire and copper wire, because the tips are long and narrow.
Unlike radio pliers, there is no blade for cutting wire near the fulcrum, so the blade does not get in the way when gripping and the tip features of a tight fit.
In addition, the sharp grooves on the tip are finely engraved so that the pliers bite firmly into the object, making it possible to pull, push, turn, and pry while gripping.
Please note that twisting the tip in the same way as with ordinary pliers or pliers, or agitating the tip at the fulcrum, may deform the tip and render it unusable for normal uses of the tool.
Also, if the fulcrum is left with moisture adhering to it, rust will form and movement will deteriorate. After use, it should be cleaned with parts cleaner, etc., and then oiled or otherwise maintained.
