Special pliers for maximum safety with ear clamps
Areas of application for ear clamps and for the Knipex ear clamp pliers
Ear clamps are used to secure CV boots on motor vehicles, for example. They keep cooling, lubrication and fuel circuits leak-tight and maintain high pressures in compressed air and compressor systems. As varied as the applications are, one thing is always the same: Safety comes first. In order for ear clamps to fulfil their optimal sealing function, they must be pressed onto the hose, the port or the boot on the shaft using a suitable tool. Once pressed correctly, ear clamps require no further attention.
Knipex 10 99 I220 ear clamp pliers – 100 per cent tool specialisation
Knipex developed the 10 99 I220 ear clamp pliers together with the inventor of the Oetiker hose clamps. The pressing noses are shaped so that they fit perfectly onto the ear clamps and do not damage the clamp ears during closing. The result: consistently ideal results and safety as specified in the relevant area of application (engine compartment, machine, etc.).
Forged from special tool steel and then oil hardened
The Knipex 10 99 I220 ear clamp pliers are forged from special tool steel, and oil hardening lends the pliers body high strength. The pressing noses are milled with purpose-designed and manufactured special precision tools and the highest degree of repeat accuracy. The Knipex 10 99 I220 ear clamp pliers are the ideal tool for working in engine compartments and on machines for example.
