Clecall Cleco Pliers were designed by Christopher Braun, EAA Lifetime #808722, In the course of building his first kit, a Zenith 750 STOL, he started experiencing wrist pain when installing large numbers of clecos into the structure. Not wanting to have permanent carpal tunnel syndrome, he held up his hand in the air one day, and said, "How can I activate a cleco with the most comfortable position I know......a handshake?" After assembling two cardboard cutouts, attached with a pushpin for a rivet, the design was made. 45 days later there were plastic prototypes and CNC production pliers. These have now evolved into our forged steel Clecall Upright Cleco Plier, and a rapidly evolving safety wire tool and line centering tool expected in June and July 2015.
We hope you enjoy the functionality and comfort of our tools!
