Things to Know Before You Buy Pliers
There are so many varieties and applications of pliers that they are often misused as general-purpose tools. Plier versatility makes them excellent tools for accomplishing a variety of tasks, but proper plier maintenance and usage is crucial to staying safe on the job. To determine the proper usage of pliers, you must first know their general category. Locking, adjustable, and non-adjustable pliers are the most common types.
- Make sure you are using the proper size pliers for your hand and comfort. Using the incorrect size could cause you to lose grip on the tool or to pinched fingers or hands, resulting in injury.
- Do not use pliers as a hammer. The pliers can become damaged if the edges crack or break, or the pliers may become damaged if the edges break or crack.
- It is undesirable to tighten nuts or bolts with pliers. A wrench is preferable, and it can accomplish the job without jeopardizing the fastener.
- Do not expose pliers to excessive heat, as heat can negatively affect the tool’s material properties.
- It is not advisable to cut the hardened wire using pliers unless they are specially designed for the purpose. Using the tips to bend a large wire can damage certain types, such as long-nose pliers.
- It is crucial to use pliers to cut wires at right angles. Do not bend the wire back or wobble against the cutting edges; ensure the sharpness of the cutting edges as dull blades or worn-down edges may require more cutting force.
- Don’t make the plier handles longer to gain more leverage; use a bigger pair of pliers or a bolt cutter depending on the job.
- It is important to oil your pliers from time to time. A little oil on the joint will allow for smooth operation and prolong the tool’s life.
