Ideal Industries introduces the Smart-Grip line.
The Smart-Grip line of heavy-duty hand tools is comprised of two side-cutting linesmen pliers, two diagonal pliers, two needle-nose pliers, two tongue-and-groove pliers, and a cable cutter and a multicrimp tool. The new tools have textured, dual-durometer Santoprene handles that are resistant to sweat, oil, water and common chemicals. They are made of drop-forged, high-carbon steel, and are fully polished to resist rust.
