NOTE: Our suppliers have been changing the color of the handles on the pliers we stock. Your pliers may have a different color handle than illustrated below.

BREAKING AND GROZING PLIERS
BREAKING AND GROZING PLIERS are the most versatile pliers in your tool box. The narrow jaws get into tight places. The curved lower jaw reaches under the score line, giving you leverage. The serrated jaws allow you to groze back any excess glass.
BREAKING AND GROZING PLIERS (#3888)
Our most popular glass pliers. Best combination of quality and reasonable price. Drop forged and tempered for long life. 5/16" wide jaws, 6" long overall.
$8.98
NARROW JAW BREAKING AND GROZING PLIERS (#3887)
About half as wide (3/16") as our standard Breaking and Grozing Pliers - the narrower jaw will let you get into tighter spaces. Especially useful for grozing tight inside curves. Drop forged and tempered for long life. 3/16" wide jaws, 6" long overall.
Order # 3887  $8.98

RUNNING PLIERS
RUNNING PLIERS act as a fulcrum where pressure is applied evenly on both sides of a score line, "running" the score through the glass very neatly. Runners work best on straight cuts, do well on gentle curves too.
STEEL RUNNING PLIERS are a lifetime tool. These heavy duty tools have cushion grip handles, plastic coated jaws (gentle on the glass) and special adjustment screw (to keep from crunching off the corners). Choose from:
STANDARD METAL RUNNING PLIERS, 8in (#3889)
Our best selling runner. 8" long.
$10.98
REPLACEMENT TIPS FOR 7/8" WIDE JAW RUNNERS (#3889-TIP)
Check the jaw width on your steel runners. These fit jaws 7/8" wide
$1.99
REPLACEMENT TIPS FOR 3/4" WIDE JAW RUNNERS (#3884-TIP)
Check the jaw width on your steel runners. These fit jaws 3/4" wide
$1.99
PLASTIC RUNNING PLIERS are lightweight, and are favored by many hobbyists who find them easier to handle. There is a variety to choose from:

GLASTAR GLAS-SNAPPER (#0814)
This a very compact 5-1/2" long runner. The narrow jaws allow you to run narrower cuts, and these are most reasonably priced. Made in USA by Glastar.
$5.99

PLASTIC RUNNERS (#0818)
These pliers have plastic handles with a little "give" to them, for a lighter touch on the glass. With an extra set of jaw inserts. 8" long. 
$5.98

RINGSTAR RUNNERS (#0819)
Glastar's unique runners allow you to run curves in your glass ... something beyond the ability of standard running pliers. The patented jaw system lets you center the fulcrum along the score line (see illustration at left), giving easy and dramatic results! Instructions are included. 
$42.99

RINGSTAR REPLACEMENT JAWS (#08191)
Replacement jaws are available 
$4.79
BREAKING PLIERS
BREAKING PLIERS come in wide and narrow versions. The photo at left shows the narrow style in action. Used for breaking (separating) pieces of glass. Jaws are smooth, so they don't work well as groziers for trimming up your cuts, but very effective for general glass use.

GLASS NIPPERS (#0802)
These are medium width breaking pliers. The jaws are 1/2" wide, and are smooth. Useful for general glass breaking. 6 1/2" plastic coated handles.  
$7.98

WIDE JAW GLASS BREAKERS (#3885) have a broad, 1" wide jaw. Use these pliers for breaking off larger pieces of glass and especially useful on thicker glass, such as 3/16 or 1/4" glass. These pliers are handy for fusers cutting thick, fused pieces. Also known as Drop Jaw Pliers as the lower jaw curves down to allow use with thicker glasses. 7" long overall.
$24.99
