How do these pliers differ from what you may find at your local roofing supply store?
Strength – The size and weight of the pliers allow for ample leverage on any metal. The heavy duty models allow for a particularly strong grip and the handles offer minimal flex. You can expect to get years of use from these pliers assuming your workmate doesn’t swipe them from your toolbox.
Size / Depth – The insertion depth of the jaws make the pliers unique to many of the others on the market. The standard size pliers have a 2.5″ grip depth. The deep depth pliers are 3″ deep.
Design – The tapered jaws of the pliers create a single point of contact for creating sharp bends. The deep depth pliers are cut at a 45° angle so that the user can scribe the angle bisector for turning up seams against skylights or other surfaces.
