Welcome to the next generation of our best-selling PowerLock! Like the original, the newest generation includes patented gear driven compound leverage, one-handed flip opening, a multitude of easy to access tools. New to this generation are several key features: First, a larger plier head with larger cutting surface... cutting with compound leverage just got better! Also notice a stream-lined look, thanks to gear covers for added comfort and safety. Lastly, we're introducing our very own locking mechanism, the Piano-Lock; For the first time, you can lock each component individually! Other new features now incorporated into all EOD PowerLocks are the addition of a hard wire cutter and a C-4 Punch (which is also useful as a marlin spike, tool scribe and glass breaker).
