"Unlike other cheaper versions, this professional tool has a super smooth twist when pulling wire"
Safety wire is often used in the aviation and performance industries where vibration may cause fasteners to loosen. While it may appear difficult to safety wire a fastener, this little tool will make it as easy as tying your shoes, one handed!
This handy, professional, full sized hardened alloy steel Aviation tool's diagonal nose allows access in very tight work areas. The flat top diamond serrations on the jaws holds the wire securely while the softer jaw teeth resists nicking and slippage of the wire. The self locking mechanism holds the wire by itself to free up your hands for other duties. Then a pull on the knurled knob automatically & effortlessly twists the wire to the desired tension in one, quick motion. A simple click, the wire is released and the excess wire can be either trimmed or the flat internal jaws can be used to fold the sharp ends of the wire over for a clean, professional and finished appearance.
This tool is not intended to be a side cutters
* NOTE: While this tool includes an integral wire cutter, a separate wire side cutters is suggested since the gap in the cutters has been increased to allow more compression grip on the the diagonal jaw without the cutting blade interfering. This significantly increases the grip on the wire
Accepts up to .065" wire.
