Cooper Hand Tools Introduces New and Improved Crescent® Brand Tongue and Groove Pliers Line
RALEIGH, NC - DECEMBER 2004 - Cooper Hand Tools has introduced its new and improved line of Crescent® brand tongue and grove pliers that offer more adjustments for better fit and greater versatility.
The new pliers are available individually in sizes from 7" to 20" with straight jaws and in two- and three-piece sets. The 10" size is also offered in an extra-wide and curve jaw model, in addition to the standard straight jaw.
The additional adjustments provide a better fit between the jaw faces and the workpiece so the teeth can grip better. This results in a tool that does a better job with reduced effort. Angled bias teeth have less chance of marring the workpiece or rounding off a fastener and provide greater torque transfer with less effort. The joint features a precision-machined undercut rib and groove that won't slip which causes the jaws to be held tighter together as gripping pressure increases.
Special forged alloy steel with induction hardened teeth and hardened single-piece rivet construction provide maximum durability. Distinctive reel cushioned grips offer comfort and control. The tools exceed ASME B107.23M-1997 performance.
Available in carded clamshell packaging. They are available at participating independent and chain hardware stores, at specialty stores and other retail outlets including Internet retailers. Also available through industrial distributors. For consumer assistance in locating these products call 919-362-1670.
