Product Description

Cutting and crimping pliers are used to finish your spiral binding plastic coils. They perform two actions with just one motion: they cut the excess plastic spiral coil off, and they crimp in the edge to prevent the coil spines from simply spinning out of your book. Compatible with spiral coils of all sizes, this manual coil finisher tool quickly and easily finishes your spiral bound books for a clean and professional finish. They are a necessity for anyone who makes spiral bound books, and are used in just a few simple steps:

 

    ① Make sure the red dot side of the pliers is facing up.
    ② Position the pliers tip into the right hand side of the coil. Make sure the crimper is placed in the center of a curved coil.
    ③ Squeeze the handles.
    ④ Flip your book over and repeat the above steps on the other side. 

 

That's it! In those four simple steps you can finish your spiral coils and have a professionally finished spiral bound book. 

Some things to keep in mind: For step 2, keep in mind that the positioning of the crimper head on the coil is important to ensure a completed crimp. Make sure it is centered on the curve of a spiral for the best results. Also, for step 4, you must actually flip your book over to do the over side; simply moving the pliers to the over side without flipping the book will not work because the pliers only crimp in one direction.

Not a fan of these...they are a pain to handle and I have to squeeze hard to get it to work, so my hand gets tired after only a couple books. They are cheap, so I don't know what I was expecting...but I can't invest hundreds into an electric crimper, so this is the only option I have found... I want someone to make an inexpensive electric crimper (Posted on 6/30/16)

these pliers DO NOT work for 6mm 1/4" size coils. its impossible to get it in the center, i can only get it to bend OR cut, not both in one smooth motion (Posted on 5/1/16)

Got these free with my machine… they were kind of a hassle and really ended up hurting my hands… I was probably doing 30-50 books per day. They worked good, it just became painful to do so many. We ended up getting an electric crimper (I think it is called a “finish at coil”?) and it is SO much easier. We still have the plier tool for a back-up, but if your usage calls for it, I def recommend a machine instead. (Posted on 4/25/16)

I made a boo boo and was trying and trying to get these to work properly without ready any directions or watching the video. I was getting frustrated by the time I finally looked for a video on for "how to use spiral pliers" and saw that the RED DOT SIDE MUST BE FACING UP. *face palm*. It is so much easier now... they work perfect. I fully admit this was user error lol (Posted on 3/28/16)

These make binding so much easier. I would definitely recommend having these compared to regular pliers like some people have mentioned doing. Yes you could save money but these make it easier and more professional looking. (Posted on 3/18/16)
