Topics: Comfortable Pliers

Q.
My hands get tired when I work with pliers for long periods of time, what do you suggest I do differently?

A.
The first recommendation is to check your tools; the handles on pliers are a big factor in whether or not you suffer hand strain or pain. You want to make sure you choose pliers that have handles that extend past the center of your palm. You also want the handles to be ergonomically designed so they fit the shape of your hand better. Check out our full line of ergonomic pliers, available in OHM and Lindstrom® brands.

Second, make sure you stop working periodically to stretch the muscles in your hands, forearms and upper arms.
