Pliers grip fasteners and building materials in multiple applications. Hog ring pliers are used to clamp together a hog ring which is a type of ring connector to secure various types of materials in the furniture, automotive, and fence industries. Linemans pliers generally cut harder wire, such as piano wire, than other wire-cutting pliers. Locking pliers grip parts securely, allowing users to rotate the tool without slipping or regripping the part. Long nose and needle nose pliers and sets grip and cut wire and have a smaller tip, which allows users to view workpieces when doing small or delicate work. Tongue and groove pliers and sets can increase their jaw width to help tighten and loosen pipes, pumps, nuts and bolts quickly.
