Pliers Safety Tips:
  • When using any tool, always wear safety glasses for eye protection.
  • Keep in mind that slip-joint pliers are called that because they can slip during use.
  • Pliers should not be used for cutting hardened wire unless specifically manufactured for this purpose.
  • Never expose pliers to excessive heat. This may draw the temper and ruin the tool.
  • When using cutting pliers, always cut at right angles. Never rock from side to side or bend the wire back and forth against the cutting edges.
  • Don’t bend stiff wire with light pliers. Needle-nose pliers can be damaged by using the tips to bend too large a wire. Use a sturdier tool.
  • Never extend the length of handles to secure greater leverage. Use a larger pair of pliers or a bolt cutter.
  • Discard any plier that is cracked, broken, sprung or has nicked cutting edges.
  • Pliers should not be used on nuts or bolts. A wrench will do the job better and with less risk of damage to the fastener.
  • Oil pliers occasionally. A drop of oil at the hinge will lengthen tool life and assure easy operation.
  • Unless specified as insulated handles, the cushion grips on pliers are not intended to give any degree protection against electric shock and should not be used on live electric circuits.
