Since 1995, Compound Leverage brings a unique advantage to multi-tools. The geared pivots doubles the gripping and cutting torque at the jaws of the pliers when compared to a conventional single-pivot plier head. It reduces the amount of torque needed at the handles to cut and decreases the risk of slipping bolts and nuts. In result, it empowers users with a more efficient and comfortable workflow.
In addition to having more powerful pliers, Compound Leverage smooths out the opening action of the tools. It allows the tool to be opened by quickly flipping one handle open while holding on to the other. This rapid one-handed flip opening technique is convenient and lets users hold something in place with one hand as they reach to grab and open their multi-tool with the other.
Compound Leverage powered pliers are available on the PowerGrab, Powerlock, PowerAssist, PowerPlay, Reactor, PowerAccess, and CrossCut 2.0.
SOG Assisted Technology (SAT®) works through the balance of opposing high-tension coil springs. As you initiate the opening action, the force propelling your blade open becomes greater than the force keeping it closed. The result is a blade that springs open instantly once it is engaged, seemingly on its own.
SAT utilized in the PowerAssist and Reactor brings another dimension to the multi-tool when using them in the field. Just like an assisted-opening blade on many folding knives, the blades on both multi-tools are spring assisted, offering users quick one-handed access to a sharp blade at a moment’s notice.
In addition, the blades are accessible from the multi-tool when the handles are closed. This allows the tool to be pulled from a pocket and opened to a blade with just one hand.
It’s fast, innovative, and built to handle almost anything. Like an automatic switchblade, the SwitchPlier 2.0’s pliers are ready to go with a simple push of a button. Instant one-handed access to the spring-loaded pliers making it quick and easy to use for a host of jobs, especially when your other hand is occupied.
Featuring push-button deploying pliers, pocket clip, and, like traditional multi-tools, other tools like a knife blade built into the handle, the SwitchPlier 2.0 is ready when called to action.
