Need to get a grip? Pliers are your best bet. Resembling a pair of jaws, pliers have many uses, including gripping, cutting, and bending. An essential for every toolbox, pliers are helpful for the DIYer and pro alike with handles that multiply the user’s hand strength. Pliers come in a variety of designs suited for specific applications. While a multi-use pair of pliers is a great place to start, you may consider getting a pair made for specific tasks. They can help you work more efficiently.

Popular Pliers and Their Uses
As discussed, pliers’ primary purpose is gripping. Standard utility pliers can be used for loosening and tightening nuts, bolts, and other fasteners. Tongue-and-groove pliers have an especially wide jaw capacity and are great for turning pipes and fasteners. Often used by electricians, lineman’s pliers can bend and cut wires and cables for tasks such as splicing. Diagonal-cutting pliers can grip and cut wires and fasteners such as nails. Slip-joint pliers have an adjustable jaw point to suit your application. Many slip-joint pliers have a cutting mechanism as well. Long-nosed and bottle-nosed pliers can help you grip small, hard-to-reach objects.
Pliers Vs Wrenches
Pliers, with their versatile jaws and ability to grasp, twist, and hold, are the go-to tools for tasks demanding dexterity and finesse. On the other hand, wrenches, with their robust torque-applying design, excel at gripping and turning bolts and nuts with substantial force. While pliers showcase their prowess in intricate maneuvers, wrenches prove their worth in heavy-duty applications.
