These pliers are ideal for crimping insulated and non-insulated terminals; circlip pliers with non-slip solid tips for installing and removing retaining rings have also been added. Prices start at $25.50.

Water pump pliers are designed to provide variable adjustment of gripping capacity. Available in a variety of styles, these adjustable grip pliers work on bolts, pipe fittings, nuts, and more. Prices for water pump pliers start at $25.50.
