You don’t have to be big to be effective. So says the new 4-1/2” Crescent mini tongue and groove pliers. Crescent, of Sparks, MD, is a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group. The company has just released the latest addition to its line of pliers.
Crescent is a premier hand tool brand from Apex Tool Group, one of the largest hand tool manufacturers in the world. The original Crescent adjustable wrench was introduced in the early 1900s and could replace an entire set of dedicated-size wrenches. This made it perfect for frequent repairs required by early cars and airplanes. In fact, Charles Lindbergh was quoted as saying he carried only “gasoline, sandwiches, a bottle of water and a Crescent wrench and pliers” on his famous 1927 solo transatlantic flight. Today, the Crescent line has expanded beyond adjustable wrenches to include a wide selection of pliers, ratcheting wrenches, screwdrivers, and tool sets.
Crescent Mini Tongue and Groove Pliers Features
The new 4-1/2” mini tongue and groove pliers enable technicians to reach hard-to-access areas. These are undersized and versatile to tighten or loosen fasteners in tight locations on equipment or vehicles. The single-dip handles make cleanup a breeze, yet still provide a comfortable grip. The small size is ideal for access as well as portability.
A precision-machined joint interlock and rivet design assure a smooth, positive joint action. The joint interlock also diminishes the chance of slipping or coming apart under load. A rust-resistant black oxide finish provides limited-slip and enhances durability.
“These new pliers fit a range of fasteners and are easy to use in tight spaces,” said Marisa Stephenson, product manager – Shaping, Fastening, and Striking Construction Tools. “We designed the Mini Tongue and Groove pliers for professionals who often need a versatile tool capable of getting into hard-to-reach areas. Mechanics and small engine techs will appreciate the improved access this tool provides.”
