Looking For A Specific Pair Of Needle Nose Pliers

10 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

I was hoping to track down another pair of pliers, not sure the brand name they were given to me many years ago. These were the best pair I have ever owned , they suited my needs perfectly. Uunfortunately they have worn out from many years of good use. They are 6 1/2" with blue felt grips, Any ideas?

 

Also looking to find a pair of " Laker pliers" these were stainless steel and the logo was a worm with a baseball cap. I believe walmart sold them? These are similar to the Rapala pliers except they have no rubber grips and a smaller profile, not as wide in the jaws.

All they have is large one's like 11" I'm trying to find these in the same size which is a real pain...I tried snap on as well.

Well hey those snap on will work! Thank you. I didn't know what they were called, tried searching for " straight nose pliers" all were 11".

 

I stay far away from the dummy grip handles like the Menards for Rapala pliers. I prefer the felt grip even though they tend to slide off all the time.

 

Thanks again bud!

I could brag about how clever I am, but the truth is I was in charge of shipping and receiving in a tool store some years ago.  I had to know what things were called or I couldn't check them off when they came in.  I still have to ask what to call things all the time.

I have been searching for quite a number of years to find a replacement. Generally stick with what I know and in this case these pliers are perfect for many applications especially removing small hooks. Guessing the Snap On would be a great buy hopefully worth the quality of the name? As said before I don't care for the rubber or vinyl grips, but beggars cannot be choosers and they are exactly what I was looking for.

 

Its funny you mentioned the tool store, I brought these in several and the responses were that they were a plain old pair of needle nose pliers...made me look like a dummy for even asking! I know they are needle nose but what kind? Then they try and sell me what they have which wouldn't last 6 months with the cheap finish put on them.

I did notice the ones on the Snap-On site are sourced from China.  Might not be any better.
