description

With parallel pliers you can clamp flat metal or metal wire without damaging it. The jaws always remain parallel so that even with thick material all the force is distributed over the entire jaw. The teeth are flat on the material. Springs are fitted in the legs to open the pliers. Some pliers are equipped with a wire cutter. [MOT]
