Pincers

Pincers are a type of high-quality hand tool designed to provide a push, pull, cut, or twist to a variety of materials, depending on the pincer type. Pincers with a flatter, more rounded head such as carpenters pincers are ideal for pulling nails out of objects, whereas end cutters are more suited to cutting through materials due to their sharper, flatter heads. Pincers can be used with a multitude of hand tools such as hammers, pliers and snips to achieve the desired result, making them a versatile multi-tool. Like other hand tools, they are available in a range of sizes and finishes, with features such as soft grip handles for comfort and grip.


What types of pincers are there?


There is a wide range of pincer types available, all best suited to specific tasks and materials. The most common types of pincers are:



  • Carpenter - an ideal nail puller, allowing you to remove nails from objects without damaging the surrounding material or cutting the nail.

  • Concreter - perfect for twisting and cutting binding wire in one single operation, due to the hardened cutting edges.

  • End cutter - this type features much sharper edges with a flatter head, allowing you to cut a range of materials with ease right down to the surface.

  • High leverage - these tend to feature longer handles with a firmer grip and a rounder edged head, making them ideal for pulling nails out of tougher materials.


Applications


Pincers (and nippers) are used in a variety of applications, from home DIY jobs to professional industrial installations. They are commonly used in:



  • Construction

  • DIY

  • Restoration

  • Automotive


What materials are they suitable with?
