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.
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.
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.
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 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
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!
Total length of pliers is approximately 6.25 inches.
