How Do You Use Long-Nose Pliers?

Use long-nose pliers by holding the handles tightly with gentle force to pick up small objects or bend wires. Pliers are used in tight spaces where larger tools cannot fit.

Long-nose pliers are most useful for completing electrical jobs that require thin wire cutting and bending, placing small screws, and reaching into small areas where hands or other tools cannot fit. Pliers are also useful in craft projects such as jewelry-making, placing small parts in clay figurines and shaping wires for models. Pliers have a narrow, pointed front for grasping tiny objects and rubber handles for grip and safety from electrocution when dealing with live wires.
