Product Description

The Craftsman 4 1/2" Diagonal Cutting Pliers Make the Snip

Small in size but big in attitude, these Craftsman 4 1/2 in. diagonal wide jaw cutting pliers can get into tight places to make those difficult cuts and grabs. The wide jaw lets you cut larger cables that would normally require a larger set of cutting pliers. The box-joint construction makes the tool strong and reliable for even the biggest of jobs and the precision jaw alignment means that it cuts diagonally straight and true.

For safety, the Craftsman 4 1/2 in. diagonal cutting pliers, have a soft grip construction that prevents slippage. These pliers are made of steel for durability and come with the Craftsman lifetime warranty. A definite tool box must-have for the serious handyman or professional tradesman.

  • The Craftsman 4 1/2" diagonal wide jaw cutting pliers features box joint construction for strength and reliability
  • The small size of the pliers makes them the perfect choice for small, hard to reach places
  • Wide jaw to cut larger cables
  • Precision jaw alignment keeps your diagonal cuts clean and true
  • Comfortable soft grip handle prevents dangerous slipping
  • 4.5" long, 2.2 lbs.
  • Made of durable steel construction
  • Come with the Craftsman Lifetime warranty

Awesome Pliers - Better Warranty

Awesome set of pliers but what is more important is the Craftsman promise. Last summer my son broke one of the jaws off with a sharp smack with a hammer. When I took it to Sears, I tried to explain what had happened but the clerk said it was unimportant, it’s a Craftsman just go get you another one off the shelf. Talk about standing behind a product, this is unbeatable!

Don't waste your money

These are very poorly made cutters. These are flush cut diagonals for use on things like printed circuit boards to cut component leads. The cutting surfaces in the jaws to not make contact with each other until half way back. This makes them worthless. If you hold the jaws up to a light you can clearly see how the cutting surfaces do not tough completely.

As a dedicated Craftsman tool buyer I am extremely disappointed with this product. The 3 piece set of this series of tools also has the same problem. I would highly suggest you stay away form this tool series and don't waste your money.

Good pliers, definitely light weight

These are good pliers for doing light electronic work. Definitely not appropriate for larger gauge wires or DIY home repairs. The blades on my cutters are a bit (fraction of a millimeter) off from closing completely without applying significant pressure. Not a real problem but indicative of good but not great manufacture.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very Handy

When I needed to change my guitar strings, these piliers were very handy when I needed to tidy up the excess strings. Now when I change my 12 string acoustic guitar, I can easily snip right at the peg to keep sharp edges away.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great product

Despite the small size this product has been excellent in cutting a stainless steel wire that all other 4-5 inch cutters would only "maul" the wire apart. After repeated use on this hard wire, the cutting edge is still sharp and has no "dents" that my other small diags have developed.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great tool for cutting jewelry wire

I make handmade jewelry and needed a tool to cut beading wire very close to the gemstones. This tool is narrow at the tip and allows cutting flush against the stones. I find that other tools don't cut well at the tip but this one works great, plus it was a lot less expensive then some other brands.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Craftsman 4 1/2" Diagonal Cutting Pliers are great for Beading!

I purchased the 5 piece Craftman set to work on my jewelry projects.  Four of the pieces have held up to continuous use for quite some time.  The cutting plier is wonderful - it is my most-used tool; one of the best featues is that when they lose their cutting edge, I can take them back to Sears and have them replaced for no charge!  The price is great - particularly compared to similar items sold at jewelry supply stores or other jewelry specialty stores - and they work better!

I completely encourage anyone to consider purchasing Craftsman products for projects other than "garage-based!"  They aren't made just for guys! :-)
