Full information


Using the proven PowerLock chassis, SOG is the only company to apply Compound Leverage technology to EOD(Explosive Ordnance Disposal). This makes it a breeze to crimp blasting caps and demolition cord with less hand pressure. Another unique SOG feature is the positioning of the crimper device within the confines of the handle...not in the plier jaw, like all other designs. This serves to minimize collateral damage to the crimper and allows the operator to have full use of the uninterrupted plier surface. Additionally there is no weakening of the pliers that often causes breakage of the plier tips. The crimper produces non-flaring, high pull out strength crimps that meet government fuse well specifications. Also includes hard wire cutter. All GSA approved.

    Compound LeverageTM

    SOG's proprietary Compound Leverage technology works by employing multiple pivot points that generate greater handle travel in relation to plier movement. The result is a leverage advantage of approximately twice the power of a conventional multi-tool, which makes every cut smoother and easier.


    Double Tooth Saw - Rotating Blade

    SOG's Double Tooth Saw design is truly cutting edge! The alternating tooth design allows the saw to grip while at the same time reducing friction for optimal performance. No outdoorsman should go into the wild without it!

Customer Ratings & Reviews

PowerLock EOD is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Powerlock EOD Purchased these at the PX as a replacement for my first run version of the Power Pliers that SOG had out in the early 2000's. Simply put, I don't like this new version anywhere near as much as I did the Power Pliers. These feel cheap and fragile. Actually they are exactly that. I dropped them with the philips head screwdriver out and it snapped off just like pot metal does. My Army issued Gerber is much better than this thing. I wouldn't waste your money on this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool!! I'm a traveling consultant. I'm either driving one of my cars or riding my motorcycle overnight. I was looking for a universal tool for use on the road, (and besides the road for breakdowns). I purchased the power lock and liked it so much that I purchased a few more for customers and a few of my business associates. Great tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent tool and Customer Service I received my multitool in 2009 and it is still as good today as the day it was bought. I recently contacted SOG just to ask where I could purchase a replacement plier head and they dispatched one to me free of charge, delivered to the UK in less than a week. Amazing customer service and brilliant products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tool I've had it for almost 5 years now and use it quite often. It still looks new and is in great shape. I always have it on me and is a great tool. Definitely worth it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from better than i expected, as advertised. grips and cuts better than I could have thought. as a service tech I have put it through the ringer and it just keeps on going. if I had to nit pick, it would be the difficulty in accessing tools and the flimsy, pop-off covers. the tool access is a little worse than some of the others I've used. but the covers are just a pain, there has got to be a better solution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These compound pliers gives insanely strong grip! I've had my black SOG EOD multi tools for about 5years, and simply put it has the best pliers of all multitools out there, but the rest falls short. The Good: Strongest pliers ever used, and abused. Take a look at the pic, I've bashed it in concrete, and it's chipped a little, but it's still functional. The Bad: The saw duller than a $15 multi tool, Phillips screw driver snapped with very little force (which was replaced free of charge.) The metal used on the main knife is softer than Gerber, or Swiss Army and a little dull. The scissor is quite dull and rudimentary compared to Swiss Army ones. The wire cutter on the pliers doesn't seem to hold its edge very well. It can't cut bike cables anymore. The leather case doesn't hold the tool securely, and further more, you can't used it to store the tool, because the tannic acid will make it rust. I'm using the Leatherman's MOLLE nylon pouch instead. Conclusion: Can't have them all. If you want strong pliers, it's SOG with compound plier, sharp blade go for Gerber, nifty and sharp tools for fine projects: Swiss Army. *TAD gear makes best tool pouch, so far, but Leatherman does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super tough! I've been using this model for over 7 years in an industrial maintenance setting. The jaw grip strength and cutting power is superior to anything out there. I did change out some of the tools, but that was a preference thing on my part. Ordering different or replacement tools directly from SOG was super fast and easy. Sure, the ergonomics might be a bit dated, but this tool will last through years of rough use and abuse. I highly recommend this multi tool to everyone.
