The Lineman's Pliers (09 12 240 T BKA) is a part of the KNIPEX Tethered Tools Program. The tether attachment point is a plastic bracket with a closed wire clamp that is securely welded to the inside of the multi-component handle of the tool. Due to the flat bracket and inside handle location, the mount does not interfer with the tool's functionality and the user's comfort and can be used with a lanyard system up high or normally on the ground.
Our Lineman's Pliers have a small rivet close to the jaws to create an ultra-high leverage design with 25% easier cutting power. The recess on the back is oval shaped, a universal terminal crimper is located beneath the joint and a fish tape puller is on the backside. These pliers are heavy-duty for the most demanding of jobs and have special induction hardened blades for a longer service life.
KNIPEX Tools has introduced a total of 24 tools with tether attachment mounts for its Tethered Tool Pliers Program and has also developed a lanyard tethering system for use with them.
