Additional Information

Westcott Compound Action Craft Pliers (16698) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heavy Duty When I first saw the Westcott Compound Action Pliers I could tell that they were heavy duty. They appear that they might last for the rest of my life. They are solid in the hand, not too heavy, and perfectly appropriate for any job that I might attempt with them. My daughter needed 16 gauge cooper wire cut for a school project and these pliers functioned as a wire cutter and cut the wire without any problems at all. I did not need to press the handles hard to get the pliers to engage, the pliers are very easy to use. I would certainly recommend these pliers to anyone who needs a solid, long lasting tool which is effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great These appear to be of highest quality. Very powerful because of the compound action. The trade-off is a smaller opening to the jaws.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong, one handed leverage pliers. Tried out the "Compound Action Pliers" in a rewiring project in the basement. In the past I used a two handled cablecutter to fit the cable and wiring. Not too bad but cumbersome. I experimented with the CAP and it cut essentially as easily as the cablecutter and in only one hand and as a result more simply in handling the cable. Worked surprisingly well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from compound snips The snips are just what I needed. They arrived sharp and being compound make it easier to use if you have any arthritis in your hands.
