Stanley Proto Expands its Line to Include a Variety of ESD Miniature Pliers

Mini pliers with ESD grips allow for precision work in limited access or confined areas.

Conyers, GA, March 23, 2006 - Stanley Proto now has a versatile line of small ESD pliers for use in electronics assembly, tool making, and precision repair work. The line includes diagonal, angled, and end cutters, needle nose, duckbill, and looping pliers. The pliers are between 4 1/2 and 5 ¾ inches long (compared to 6 to 10 inches for standard models) and have jaw widths of less than 1/2 inch. They come in semi-flush edge and flush-edge designs. (Semi-flush pliers can be used for nearly any wire-cutting application, while the flush edge design is best for delicate applications that call for a cleaner cut.)

The pliers have a unique dual-leaf spring design that automatically opens the jaws when the user relaxes his grip. This makes them perfect for repetitive-use applications.

Slip-resistant Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) cushioned grips make the pliers comfortable to use and meets ESD static decay specifications that are required when working on electronic equipment.

All Stanley® Proto® miniature pliers are hot drop forged for maximum strength. The jaws are hardened and tempered and the cutting edges are electronically induction hardened for long-life wire cutting. A high polish finish makes the tools easy to clean. The line consists of 19 unique SKUs: 17 individual tools and two sets. The sets consist of four and six mini pliers in a zippered case.
