Channellock Inc. recently launched its new line of Insulated Pliers designed for electricians and other professionals who need high quality OSHA-compliant pliers for safety on the job.
“Our new Insulated Pliers feature precision-machined knife-and-anvil style cutting edges to ensure perfect mating and superior cutting edge life. The cutting edges are also laser heat-treated to last longer,” said Ryan DeArment, vice president – Sales & Marketing. “These new Insulated Pliers are made with high carbon U.S. steel for superior performance on the job, and an ultimate rust-preventive coating.”
The new Insulated Plier line includes four tools:
- 8-in. Long Nose Plier with a long, streamlined design for precision handling, and XLTTM Xtreme Leverage Technology to enable cutting with considerably less force than traditional high-leverage pliers. The pipe grip design will accommodate many shapes and the crosshatch teeth provide a tighter grip.
- 7- and 8-in. Diagonal Cutters featuring strong lap joint construction and a durable diagonal cutting-edge design. The 8-in. Diagonal Cutter also features XLT technology to improve cutting performance and reduce hand fatigue.
- 8-in. Combination Plier featuring XLT technology, crosshatch teeth for a tighter grip and a pipe grip design to accommodate many shapes.
The insulation is impact resistant and flame retardant, and the entire product line complies with IEC 60900-2012, ASTM F1505-16 and NFPA 70E standards. They are tested to 10,000 VAC and rated for 1,000 VAC when working on live parts.
