Platinum Tools launches new Lineman’s Pliers
Platinum Tools has announced the launch of its new 6-inch and 8.5-inch Lineman’s Pliers. The models are now shipping and retail for MSRPs of $20.95 (8.5-inch) and $18.95 (6-inch).
“The new Platinum Tools Lineman’s Pliers are a fresh take on a classic design,” Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools, Inc. president and general manager, said in a statement. “Designed for gripping, twisting, bending and cutting wire and cable, the two-tone (TPR) molded comfort grip handle helps make any job a breeze.”
Both sizes feature a 6140CrV drop forged carbon alloy steel body with a hardness level of 45 ±3 and a blade hardness of 58-61 for a clean cut.
“The 6-inch version is the miniature version of its 8.5-inch big brother, but the compact smaller design allows it to get into places the larger Lineman’s Pliers won’t fit,” added Sachs. “Put both of these in your tool belt or box and you have the perfect one-two punch for any job.”
