BrakeQuip has improved the design of it Brake Tube Pliers. In addition to being able to bend 3/16 tube, the pliers are now also able to bend ¼ tube. This features has a 10mm radius for 3/16 tube and 16mm radius for ¼ tube, which is the appropriate bend radius for tight bends without kinking, said the company.
BrakeQuip has also widened the pinch point to make gripping easier and to avoid damaging the tube. Besides bending and gripping capabilities, the pliers have a straight hardened back face to be used as a guide for cutting tube squarely on the vehicle. The pliers have cushioned handles for comfort.
