Made with automotive end users in mind, the solid joint construction and forged design deliver strength and durability for each task. The tapered tips improve snap ring retention, while the tapered jaws allow increased reach and access, making it possible for users to work in tight spaces. The straight jaws deliver deeper access for hard-to-reach snap rings, while the 90-degree jaws provide an excellent line of sight to the snap ring.
The forged handles are gently curved for exceptional comfort and control. The easy-to-clean dipped handle grips are also resistant to gasoline, brake fluid and anti-freeze allowing for an extended tool life.
The new pliers are available for purchase from mobile distributors and automotive parts retailers nationwide. For more information please visit gearwrench.com.
