As I mentioned earlier, I was getting tired of rusty and nasty pliers in my boat. Not only would they not open and close but they would also stain my carpet. I have already replaced my boat carpet once and I can confidently say that I will never do it again.
These pliers come with a Cerakote coating that supposedly protects against abrasion, corrosion and UV rays. I’m not a scientist and I haven’t put them under a microscope but I will certainly say that they haven’t rusted thus far and they seem to be holding up better than any of pair of pliers I’ve tried. I can leave them in the floor of my boat in rainy weather and back my boat into the shop and not even worry about taking them out. They haven’t stained my carpet and they still work just as well as the day I got them.
