From the SaberTooth website:
Traditional pliers don’t allow for much leverage, so SaberTooth invented the Max Force Multi Pliers with the dual pivot-action lever which generates greater power, control, and comfort for superior clamping and cutting power.
We can understand the desire for four pliers in one — especially in a smaller toolkit, like the one you carry in your car. But are these pliers really all that?
They require little description: you can swap in any of the four different sets of jaws — long-nose, linesman, diagonal cutters, or end nips. A double-action joint provides additional force — 50%, according to SaberTooth.
But that said, we wonder how these pliers’d hold up in actual use. We have a set of snap ring pliers that operate on the same concept (different heads held on with pins and a double-action reversible joint to allow them to act as “normally-open” or “normally-closed”) and they’re a bit hokey. The swappable heads seem to squirm around a bit under tension, and in the worst of situations they can even pop off.
Anyway, the Max Force pliers are available on the ‘net for around $25, which isn’t too bad a deal for four sets of pliers.
