FOREWORD

The American National Standards Committee B107 on Socket Wrenches and Drives was originally under the sponsorship of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). It was subsequently reorganized as an ASME Standards Committee, and its title was changed to Hand Tools and Accessories. In 1996, the Committee's scope was expanded to include safety considerations.

The purpose of B107.500 is to define essential performance and safety requirements for several types of pliers, including long nose pliers, shears, electronic pliers, and wire cutters. It specifies test methods to evaluate performance related to the defined requirements and safety and indicates limitations of safe use.

This Standard may also be used as a guide by state authorities or other regulatory bodies in the formulation of laws or regulations. It is also intended for voluntary use by establishments that use or manufacture the instruments covered.

This Standard includes the following:

B107.11 Pliers: Diagonal Cutting and End Cutting, approved by the American National Standards Institute on December 4, 2008

B107.13 Pliers: Long Nose, Long Reach, approved by the American National Standards Institute on April 16, 2003

B107.16 Shears (Metal Cutting, Hand), approved by the American National Standards Institute on December 4, 2008

B107.18 Pliers: Wire Twister, approved by the American National Standards Institute on December 4, 2008

B107.19 Pliers: Retaining Ring, approved by the American National Standards Institute on May 25, 2004

B107.20 Pliers: Lineman's, Iron Worker's, Gas, Glass, Fence, and Battery, approved by the American National Standards Institute on October 5, 2004

B107.22 Electronic Cutters and Pliers, approved by the American National Standards Institute on December 4, 2008

B107.23 Pliers: Multiple Position, Adjustable, approved by the American National Standards Institute on February 19, 2004

B107.24 Pliers: Locking, Clamp, and Tubing Pinch-Off, approved by the American National Standards Institute on November 8, 2007

B107.25 Pliers: Performance Test Methods, approved by the American National Standards Institute on November 8, 2007

B107.27 Pliers: Multiple Position, Electrical Connector, approved by the American National Standards Institute on May 1, 2003 (R2008)

B107.37 Pliers: Wire Cutters/Strippers, approved by the American National Standards Institute on November 8, 2007

In addition to the consolidation of these individual pliers standards into this Standard, principal changes are the uniform inclusion of performance requirements and test methods that evaluate both performance and safety, as well as a uniform format for sections on definitions, references, performance requirements, tests, and safety requirements and limitations of use.

Members of the Hand Tools Institute Pliers Standards Committee through their knowledge and hard work have been major contributors to the development of the B107 Standards. Their active efforts in the promotion of these standards is acknowledged and appreciated.

The format of this Standard is in accordance with The ASME Codes & Standards Writing Guide 2000. Requests for interpretations of the technical requirements of this Standard should be expressed in writing to the Secretary, B107 Committee, at the address below.

Suggestions for the improvement of this Standard are welcome. They should be addressed to the Secretary, ASME B107 Standards Committee, 3 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016-5990.
