H-Pliers / Pliers


Humanized pliers made improvements based on pliers’ using circumstances. The handle was designed as curve shape, leaving some space between operating plane and handle, creating a more comfortable operating experience for customers.
Hexagonal slot design was added in order to open standard hexagonal nuts. For most families a simple and humanized plier like this can help solve many daily problems.
