Wire-locking of nuts and bolts is the norm for safety-critical assembles on many vintage, classic, race and kitcars.

These safety wire Twisting Pliers from Frost Automotive Restoration make the job much easier, compared to regular pliers, which require manual twisting, taking take time and effort.

The Frost items require a simple ‘one pull’ action and automatically return thus twisting wire quickly into a strand that won’t unravel. The pliers feature a built-in wire cutter, too.

To remove the newly twisted wire, clasp the pliers firmly and slide-up the centre-locking mechanism. To make the job even more efficient frost also sell a handy nut drilling jig (£29.50) and bolt drilling tool (£21) to make the necessary hole in the nut or bolt.  0.8mm stainless steel locking wire (from £2.75) is then used to complete the wire-locked assembly. Simple as that…
