Review for Knipex Electrical Installation Pliers by Jonathan Gilbert
7th April 2021

Got the VDE version of these with a wera screwdriver set wasn’t expect much from them as always thought they looked too big and clumsy. But they are surprisingly brilliant really easy to strip cut and crimp cables. Would definitely recommend.

I’m a fan! I’ve had these for a few years, they are great for all sorts of tasks and have never let me down. The shears are sharp and easily cut through 25mm tails. They will cut 35&50mm just fine but with a little effort required. Don’t let the price tag put you off they are well worth the cost.

Excellent grip on the handle. Has loads of features built in. Very handy tool indeed. I mainly use the pliers and 1.5 2.5 wire stripper. These are more expensive than other brands but again you getting pretty much a multi-tool for all your electrical needs. Knipex is a very good brand in my opinion.

These are a great tool and usually stay in my pocket most days, my only issue I’ve found is when trying to terminate a cable in a deep back box, but other than that I think they’re great and use them all the time

Little pricey but when you think these are at least 4 tools in. Makes more space in tool bag for other things or you can just carry less. Cable cutter is so easy hardly any force needed and stripping is effortless. Great purchase

Not sure how I managed before I bought this. Absolutely brilliant, doesn’t need as much muscle with what seems added leverage. Just need the 1 tool for cutting stripping and crimping. Nice ergonomic grip, helps when using for long periods

A very versatile tool that I use every day. The cutters go through cables with ease, the pliers grip well and the crimping and stripping features are handy. I own the VDE version, which aren’t cheap. Well made and worth the expense.

I have the VDE version with the spring clip. These have replaced my normal pliers. Find as an electrician these are much more useful, as I rarely need a pair of pliers with larger jaws. The shears are very good when cutting larger flex and the holes for cutting insulation work well. Only used the crimper once, but it saved me when not having a dedicated crimping tool.

Anyone that knows knipex, knows they're the best and this tool is right up there! I bought it just to try because I'm a tool addict, but now I can't be without it!

This stripper is invaluable when you’ve got a fair amount of flex to strip. Gets it nice and neat every time.

Quite expensive but I think worth the money, next to my cutters these have place in my tool bag. I mostly use them for the second fix jobs.

Great to use and can be stored away in tool boxes and bags, great to keep in the van. Would even be handy for use at home when needed.

Tbh I found these to be quite awkward to work with and found it much easier using separate shears and pliers.

Very good add on tool to existing cutters. Easy to co cut 25mm ties. Plus handy grip, slim shape that gives access to tight spaces. Don’t forget about 1.5 & 2.5 cable insulation stripper. Overal very handy tool. A must have for every sparky

Alright, guys, a little review on these KNIPEX Electrical Insulation Pliers. This is a comfort grip, but you can get insulation grips or PVC dip grips on these, but I just got these because it's all they had in stock when I went in. There's a couple of features in them, which saves you having to carry several pairs of pliers, and if you're like me and don't like carrying too much weight around with you. There's a cable sheer built into the centre bit, can strip three different types of cable through these pre-sized holes, which are 0.7 mil, 1.5 mil, and 2.5 mil. It can crimp from 0.5 mil up to 2.5 mil as well, located here.

It's got a nut grabbed, and then needle-nosed pliers, which are serrated and then flush on the end, so you can just grab things and do a little more delicate work. Also great at getting into things, really good set of pliers. This cable sheer is brilliant as well, it goes through cable no problem whatsoever. Far better than [inaudible 00:00:52], which is to be fair brilliant, and the cable stripper is great. I've got some 1.5 cable and straight through, no problem. Just twist and pull, no damage whatsoever to the copper. Really nice pliers, nice and smooth as well out the box. All round, really decent set of pliers, and can save you a bit of room in your toolbox or your tool belt depending, whatever you use. Thanks anyway, guys.

After years of using CK croppers I was very kindly given these to review, I was dubious about how they would compare but I must say I only wished I had of come across them sooner!. Excellent for Cutting all types of cables and even cuts 25mm tails with ease. These shears leave a very clean and precise cut, and as with knives the build quality is second to none as usual. The only minor concern is they are slightly on the small side so once you get to the 25mm tails you need to use 2 hands to be able to open the jaw wide enough other than that they are spot on. If they become available in a larger size I think they would be ideal and will be purchasing a pair myself Would highly recommend them as part of your tool kit and are reasonably priced as well.

Great product, I have the multi purpose side cutter and the “first fix” cutters, nice to handle cut through most stuff I throw at them, had a faulty pair (fell apart) and was replaced with no hassle, good price highly recommended over other cutters

Once upon a tome used to be a good site, too many cowboys not being properly checked out and verified, too many customers expecting things done cheaply, they shortlist you and you get charged even if you can’t make contact.

Don’t normally do bad reviews, been with Checkatrade for a few years now, the idea is great but does requires a lot of back ground paperwork keeping reviews uptodate, if you don’t you fall lower down the list
