Knipex TwinGrip – Slip Joint Pliers

Throughout our 40 years of trading Knipex have been our preferred supplier of pliers and side cuts. Still manufactured in Germany to the highest quality, their tools always stand the test of time. Knipex have a great name within the trade and we are often asked specifically for their products from our regular customers.

A new plier to their range the TwinGrip allows for both front and side gripping and combines slip joint pliers with a push button function. The jaws have been designed with teeth perpendicular teeth and an oval opening in the front to allow gripping the worn heads of fasteners.

The pliers are very slim so they can be used in tight areas, but also have a large gripping capacity for both the front and the side – 4- 22mm. The push button operates the slip joint function which has 5 settings and there is a pinch stop feature to reduce the risk of crushing fingers.

Scarab Fuse and Relay Plier

How many times have you struggled with getting a fuse out of a tiny fuse box in an awkward place? 10 minutes later you’re cursing and wondering why manufacturers have to make things so hard for the aftermarket.

Laser Tools have developed a new tool to solve this very problem – now an EU Registered design the Scarab Relay and Fuse Plier is a great time saving tool.

It has been designed to remove automotive relays and blade type fuses easily with one hand. This small yet ingenious tool sits comfortably in the palm of your hand whilst the long spring loaded scarab type jaws allow access into tight spaces.

The narrow hooked jaws can reach into tightly packed relays and fuses, where a pair of standard long nose pliers would not get in.

Electrical Connector Removal Tool

Another time saving tool we have just received into stock is the electrical connector removal tool for separating vehicle electrical connectors with a single lock catch mechanism. This very simple tool has been designed for use on tight and awkward release buttons or in hard to reach areas. It’s very slim design allows it to be used in the most narrow spaces. The claw allows the release button to be pressed down and pulled back to release the connection with ease. You should always use the correct tool for the job, and this new tool stops the need for sticking a screw driver into the connector.

Hydraulic Brake Caliper Spreader

Brake Caliper

They always say ‘use the right tool for the job’. A good example of this is the new in stock Hydraulic Brake Caliper Spreader from Laser Tools. We’ve all seen it done with a big pair of grips and trying to balance an old brake pad across the jaws to spread the load across the pistons. But this new tool has been designed to make the job quick and easy!

Specifically for large 2, 4 and 6 piston calipers, it has 3 different sets of pads 90, 150, 180mm which are easily interchangeable. And the centrally located hydraulic ram, evenly spreads the force to stop misalignment.

The ram is operated with the supplied T-Handle, creating a high force spread from 37mm – 71mm.
