Sometimes referred to as pincers, needle-nose pliers, or snip nose pliers, these long nose pliers are ideal for firm yet careful gripping, bending and turning of narrow material. They are designed with precision in mind and are used in a variety of applications, ranging from electrical work to jewellery making.

They feature a degree of insulation and are so ideal for electrical work such as domestic writing and appliance repair.

How to maintain long-nosed pliers

Needle nose pliers are designed with softer and lighter materials in mind, and sturdier pliers should be used for anything too robust. For instance, using your needle-nosed pliers in place of a wrench to try and turn nuts or bolts will likely damage them. Though these pliers are somewhat protected from corrosion, adding a moisture-absorbing gel pack to your tool storage can further prevent the onset of rust.
