Types of Pliers

Pliers are two-handled, two-jawed hand tools used mainly for gripping, twisting, and turning. Because the jaws meet at the tip, they can grip with some precision. Some types are made for cutting as well. Here are some of the main types of pliers.

  • Adjustable Pliers or Slip-joint Pliers
  • Long-nose Pliers or Needle-nose Pliers
  • Diagonal-cutting Pliers
  • Channel-type Pliers or Groove-joint Pliers or Tongue and Groove Pliers
  • Lineman’s Pliers
  • Locking Pliers or Vice Grips
  • Round-nose Pliers
  • Chain-nose Pliers
  • Flat-nose Pliers
