The jaws of these pliers have a 90-degree bend, allowing for easy access and manipulation of external retaining rings. Thanks to the mounted double leaf spring, these pliers have a self-opening mechanism. This feature simplifies their use, as they naturally open after each compression, reducing hand strain and fatigue during extended use.

Crafted from ELORA-Chrome-Vanadium 31 CrV 3 / 1.2208 steel, these pliers are built to withstand demanding tasks. This high-quality material ensures longevity and robustness.

Chrome Vanadium steel, as the name suggests, contains both chromium (Cr) and vanadium (V) as alloying elements. The “31” in 31CrV3 represents the approximate percentage of chromium in the alloy, which is typically around 1%, while “V3” indicates the approximate percentage of vanadium, which is around 0.3%.

The pliers feature a chrome-plated finish, which not only enhances their visual appeal but also provides resistance to corrosion and wear.

The polished joint ensures smooth movement and precise operation, while the chequered handles offer a secure and comfortable grip, reducing the risk of hand slippage during use. These Circlip Pliers adhere to DIN 5254 Form B standards, guaranteeing their adherence to established industry specifications.

DIN 5254 Form B is a German industrial standard that specifies the design and dimensions of crimping tools, particularly those used in electrical applications. This standard defines the requirements for crimping tools, including crimping pliers, crimping dies, and crimping jaws, to ensure their compatibility with electrical connectors and terminals.

Specifically, DIN 5254 Form B focuses on crimping tools used for uninsulated terminals and connectors. It provides details regarding the dimensions, materials, and performance characteristics of these tools.

DIN standards are developed and maintained by the German Institute for Standardization (Deutsches Institut für Normung – DIN). DIN 5254 Form B is just one of many DIN standards that cover various aspects of industrial and technical products, ensuring quality and safety in a wide range of applications.

Elora’s Circlip Pliers 474-A are reliable and durable tools, purpose-built for working with external retaining rings. Their innovative design and adherence to DIN standards make them a valuable addition to any toolkit, ensuring efficiency and precision in tasks involving retaining rings.
