Our Cleaning Rod Pliers are designed for tightening jags, brushes, adapters, etc., to your cleaning rod. They have two different-sized notches in the jaws, so they'll work on 17 caliber thru the larger 35 caliber and up rods. These pliers are made of a special soft alloy that won't mar the rod ferrule or accessory like normal steel pliers will do. To protect your rod, they are designed to break if excess pressure is applied. Like all our products, they're guaranteed for life, so if that ever happens, just return for a replacement. Soft vinyl handles give you a secure grip. We prefer using two pliers - one to hold the implement and one for the cleaning rod.
