Built from the ground up for peak performance and durability, the new Long Cut Straight Snips and Long Cut Offset Snips are innovative solutions for metalworking and mechanical professionals who need to make long, straight cuts through sheet metal and ductwork. Backed by a limited lifetime warranty, the Long Cut Straight Snips provide a 3-inch cut length through 20-gauge cold-rolled steel, while the Long Cut Offset Snips slice a 2 ½-inch cut length. The Long Cut Offset Snips also feature a 45-degree angle, which keeps users’ hands above the cutting material for added protection and control. The snips are made with forged metal heads and hard chrome plating for maximum rust protection, tool strength, and durability. An exclusive, patent pending spring-and-lock mechanism allows the user to open and close the snips with one hand while thumb and forefinger slots allow the user to push through sheet metal. Additionally, the cutter heads feature sub-flush bolts to prevent the tool from getting hung up on sheet metal while cutting. Durable rubber grips add comfort and help protect the tool.
