The 1168 Series needle-nose pliers have long, tapered jaws with a 45 degree bend to get into the tightest areas. The bend can also give you a bit more leverage when twisting. The knurled jaws also have a wire-cutting section near the hinge for increased versatility. The two-layer black over Beta orange PVC coating on the handles is textured for a non-slip grip.
