Adel Clamp Installation Pliers
These special pliers allow for greatly simplified installation of single or multiple Adel type cushioned clamps. The pliers securely hold the aligned clamps in position, allowing for easy installation of securing hardware. Each kit includes special plier, alignment awl, and simple instructions.


Like so many tools that arent exactly necessary, I soldiered along for years on my Experimental project without it. Finally, stymied by a complicated clamp setup I was trying to accomplish, I gave in and bought these pliers. Now I wish Id bought them 20 years ago. Well worth the money for the time and pain youll save.

I have nearly destroyed my fingers in the past installing Adel clamps. Love these things and will continue to use them.

Great tool. I keep asking myself why I did not have one of these in my tool box. Especially great for use with 2 P clamps together. Also use a cotter pin puller for alignment in tight spots where the awl is too big to fit.

I have nearly destroyed my fingers in the past putting Adel clamps on. Finding this is almost life changing LOL! I put a double Adel clamp on yesterday with relative ease. Love these things and will continue to use them in the future. Well thought out and put together product.

This is a great set. I find it works exceptionally well. The toll made it easy to attach two clamps. It was fast easy and trouble free.

This is a must have tool for all who work on airplanes. It is a real time saver and makes putting on adel clamps way easier.

Works much better than using needle nosed vice grips. Just remember to remove the pliers before tightening the hardware too tight or you wont get them off! In tight places the awl may not fit as it needs a straight line to work, try using a cotter pin puller PN 12-01892, this worked for me in a confined space.

Dont cheap out. Get this set if you are installing one clamp or 100 clamps. It will save your fingers and a bunch of time!

Works as described, but still need to use safety wire in some cases to draw sides close. And cant use in all locations due to size. Kind of pricey, but saving wear and tear on fingers

The concept deserves a 5-star rating. The finish of the tools is rough and shows a lack of production skills. Rivet heads were rough and sharp in some places. However, a time saver and appreciated the addition to my tool kit.
