This pair of Milwaukee 48-22-3069 6-in-1 combination pliers offers an innovative dual-head design to perform tasks that require wire-stripping as well as needle-nose functions. These pliers also have a unique reaming head for removing burrs and smoothing the edges of metal pipes. The 6-in-1 capabilities of this combination tool include needle-nose pliers, wire stripping, wire cutting, wire bending for loop making, bolt cutting, and conduit-pipe reaming. A spring-loaded locking mechanism keeps the pliers closed when inside a tool box/pouch but allows them to be opened quickly and easily when needed. Forged alloy steel along with rust protection make this pair of Milwaukee 48-22-3069 6-in-1 combination pliers exceptionally strong and durable, and the hand grips are ergonomically designed to be comfortable and easy to use. Milwaukee manufactures high quality tools to help you get your work done efficiently and effectively, and every Milwaukee hand tool is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

awesome but... Rated 4 by Anonymous before you all get huffy I know all about safety, but as an electrician in the field, most of my days are troubleshooting. Leave the makeup for the kids. Troubleshooting often means everything is live when looking for problems. Working on live wires with a pair of plyers that has an exposed metal can lend for quite a surprise. I love these things except for the single time I took a shock when using them to strip a wire. I am not a big fan of the plastic lock and spring so I removed those. I would recomend them but with a warning about the shock potential. Make a pair with the insulated grips running up the handle further and I will trumpet these from rooftops.

Great pliers but need some redesign Rated 4 by Anonymous These are the best strippers on the market klien needs to take a page out of Milwaukee book here. The needle nose stripper combo is Awesome and the reamer would be great but the hashes are placed in the wrong direction. Also the locking mechanism is great but the plastic is just plastic thus breaking easily and gets weak quickly. I would like to see the same design in the locking mechanism but made from the same metal as the pliers or as strong as. And resolve the file design and turn it into a reaming design. I look forward to buying the updated version of this product it will for sure get s 5 star review. Originally posted on milwaukeetool.com Jun/2013
Best strippers I've used Rated 4 by Anonymous This tool should be standard issue for all electricians. Every pair of wire strippers that I've owned, could be used as needle nose pliars, and this is the only one of them that you can actually use for this purpose. They cut and strip wire as good as Klien, or Greenlee, but the needle nose function is what makes them stand out. The reeming function is nice, although I wouldn't use this tool over a reeming conduit driver, or Linesman Pliars, and the locking mechanism needs improvement. Other than that, this tool is awesome.

Pretty Beefy Strippers Rated 4 by Anonymous These strippers are amazing. They're beefy, strong and well built. The lack of a "rivet hinge" makes this tool a real winner. I make use of this tool many times every day, even if I don't strip a single wire. The needle nose is very strong and works fine for knockouts and reaming smaller pipe (1/2"). My only issue is the locking mechanism. It's a plastic slide that tends to 'let go' whenever it decides. If you can get used to just leaving them open and unlocked, they'll make a great addition to your tool pouch. Originally posted on milwaukeetool.com Jun/2012
