Safety wire pliers, often called "SWIPES," are a staple in any technician's tool box. They make the installation of safety wire - especially the twisting operation - quick and easy. Quality ranges from very good (and very expensive) to dubious.
< Our SWIPES rival the top end of the market, yet are modestly priced. The SWP8 measures 8.5" tip-to-tip, with a precision diagonal nose jaw and heat-treated cutting blades. The lock and twist mechanism operates with ease, and overall fit and finish is top-drawer. With the SWP8, you won't have to worry about getting the job done right and quickly.
