Traditionally, European and American brands are considered the highest in quality, but Cousins' value range offers quality engineering at exceptional prices. Now introducing the "Cousins Swiss Style" range of pliers, these tools offer the same superb Swiss quality as other well known brands, at extremely competitive prices.
Cousins' stock of comprehensive pliers can grip, form, bend, twist and hold articles. Pliers are identified by the shape of the jaw and the type of joints at the pivot. Two main types of joint are used in ordinary pliers: the box joint and the lap joint. The box joint type is desirable as the jaws are less inclined to disjoint after heavy use.
Parallel pliers have a more complex pivoting mechanism than standard pliers. The jaws open and close always maintaining a symmetrical motion, giving ultimate control when working, these pliers incredibly reduces slipping.
It is wise to have a selection of pliers on the bench to accommodate every type of job.
