These Klein Tools Universal Combination Pliers have a crimping die behind the hinge for better leverage of non-insulated connectors, lugs, and terminals. They also have tons of grip from the toothed pipe grip, and a high-leverage design, with the rivet closer to the cutting edge for 40% greater cutting and gripping power than other pliers designs. The ''handform'' handles are tempered to help absorb the ''snap'' from cutting and they are dipped for comfort.
