Platinum Tools Unveils New Lineman’s Pliers

Available in 6-inches or 8.5-inches February 19, 2016

NEWBURY PARK, CALIF.—Can you ever have too many sets of pliers around?


The latest from Platinum Tools is the Lineman’s Pliers. Available in 6-inch and 8.5-inch versions, the handles have a two-toned molded grip with a shoulder.

The body is made of 6140CrV drop-forged carbon alloy steel. The body has level of 45 plus or minus three and the blades rate at hardness level 58-61.

Platinum Tools President and General Manager Lee Sachs said, “Designed for gripping, twisting, bending and cutting wire and cable, the two-tone molded comfort grip handle helps make any job a breeze.” He added, “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.”
