Utility equipment: Lineman’s pliers easily grip, twist, bend, and cut wire and cable

Utility equipment: Platinum Tools, a provider of solutions for the preparation, installation, hand termination and testing of wire and cable, will feature the new 6-inch (p/n # 12206C) and 8.5-inch (p/n # 12201C) Lineman’s Pliers during ISC West 2016, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 6-8 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth #5036. The 8.5-inch and 6-inch models are now shipping.

“The new Platinum Tools Lineman’s Pliers are a fresh take on a classic design,” said Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager. “Designed for gripping, twisting, bending and cutting wire and cable, the two-tone (TPR) molded comfort grip handle helps make any job a breeze.”

Both sizes feature a 6140CrV drop forged carbon alloy steel body with a hardness level of 45 ±3 and a blade hardness of 58-61 to ensure a clean cut for years to come. With a polished finish, the tool has both great functionality and looks.

“The 6-inch version is the miniature version of its 8.5-inch big brother, but the compact smaller design allows it to get into places the larger Lineman’s Pliers won’t fit,” added Sachs. “Put both of these in your tool belt or box and you have the perfect one-two punch for any job.”
