Questions & Answers

What kind of result would you get if you cut stainless steel ladder cable ties with these?

The only thing to remember is that they are tiny. It is only for jobs that are small. My ties stayed but I had to get a larger size since I didn't know how big cable ties were.

Is it able to reopen itself once it has been cut?

You will get a self-installing CD with it There is no spring in sight.

What kind of flush cut is this?

It would have been better if the cutting edge were flush with the cut. Rather than having a cut that ran parallel to the cutting edge, I got a diagonal cut. My mood was lowered when I saw it.

What are the chances of cutting memory cables with those?

It was the first time I had heard of memory wire, so I had to look it up. I found a discussion on how these pliers would not work well for cutting memory wire. It seems that memory wire is 'tempered,' which makes it extremely hard. As a result, the cutting edges of these pliers would be deformed. My advice Look for pliers like these to cut chicken wire. They are a very light weight, but very useful instrument.

I am very unhappy with the quality of this product
3/5

Despite the fact that the photo shows Japan, the products are actually It was possible for the jaws to differ in length, so one was 1 mm shorter than the other, so the end wasn't cut. The finish is poor and rough. There are only seven dollars. The value of $2 is not worth 99 cents.

I'm so sorry! There is a misalignment in the jaws, which leads to them slipping
3/5

It does not cut wires very well, sometimes even does not cut wires at all, resulting in a lot of There is so much information that it hurts my hand. No way does what I received look like what I ordered. Jaws do not have a spring behind them. There is a difference in the color of the handle Instead of red, blue and yellow are more appropriate. Yellow is used to aid in gripping. However, it is painful to handle because it is too hard and hard to grip Wearing gloves is required in order to use this product without causing injury to the hand. Totally useless. It didn't occur to me until it was too late to return the set that these were a spare set! I bought these as a spare set, so I didn't test them out right away. My regret is that I purchased the item. I will put them in the city recycling bin and hope they get melted down again and turned into something useful.

Strong, excellent quality, good price
5/5

I'm a bit of a tool snob - but I highly recommend this product In addition to sturdy tools of high quality, I also want to be able to rely on them in case something is wrong. My mother let me inherit Dad's tools when he passed away on the condition that I find pink tools for her use if she needs them. (It's mostly just a comfort issue. It doesn't look like she'll be meet my quality standards, but they Those are the ones I chose thanks to other reviewers. It's very strong and sharp. I am very happy with its construction. As the spread is a bit small and the handles are shorter, it would probably be better suited to women. At such a low price, it's a great buy.

Using money in this way is a waste
3/5

I don't see anything special about these diagonal cutters, which are cheaply made. about using side cutters is that if you let the wire slip down to the joint (which is natural when using side cutters), there is a gap where the wire is missed on As far as I am concerned, they are worthless. Moreover, the picture shows a pair of cutters made in Japan, but they are replicas of the same cheap Chinese junk you can buy at any Dollar Store anywhere in the United States for a dollar or less. You can save GO FOR THIS TOOL IF YOU WANT A COSTLY AND USELESS TOOL!.

The small cutter is perfect for working on Excellent little cutters for doing small jobs like phone wires or electrical wiring around the house
4/5

The purpose of a bundled wire is certainly not to go through large ones such as a 120V power cord (make sure to disconnect the power first) or Cat-6 cable The cable is a CAT 5 Harder materials such as sheet metal or hardwood are not suitable for this product. It can also be used as a zip-cutter However, you should use twist-ties and ties as well.

There is no Dykes brand to be found on these, which may explain the low price
3/5

They do not cut as well as my Ace 4 do. The cutters have a diameter of 5". My choice of these was because Dykes is a good brand. The experience has left me disappointed and feeling Learning is the only constant in life.

Basically, I had to get my toenails trimmed a lot since they were very long and thick

It was done exactly how I wanted it out of the box from the beginning. I like this tool a lot.

This type of use is not suitable for frequent use every day
3/5

The runners were bought to be used in a plastic factory for cutting runners. As a result, I forgot to pay attention when I purchased these and they are smaller than I expected, so I take the blame, but they are not comfortable at all. To avoid digging into my hand, I am forced to position it far above the end of the handle, but when I close the handles, it is very easy to pinch my fingers. Off the bat, they did not seem to be very sharp. Even after using them for one shift, they seemed to be getting duller.
