Platinum Tools 12200C BTK Heavy Duty 8.5" Linemans Pliers
The heavy duty BTK Series Pliers are the ultimate in performance, control and comfort! Highest quality, state-of-the-art manufactured to exceed European DIN and GS standards. Assembled with a single joint planetary rivet for superior durability and long life. Hi-leverage design requires up to 42% less hand force (see diagrams). Non-slip, cushioned grips help prevent hand injuries and fatigue. Precision ground serrated jaws, provide secure gripping surface... will not slip! With Platinum Tools lifetime warranty, you'll never have to buy another pair of pliers again!
Why Hi-leverage? These pliers are designed with the joint rivet placed closer to the nose of the pliers. A significantly lower hand force is required to achieve the same gripping force as with standard pliers (see L1 and L2). It's simply a more efficient lever! The overall benefits are reduced hand fatigue and a lower potential for slipping injuries.
