Don't Try This at Home

4 things you should never do with pliers

? Don't use them to turn a nut when a wrench would be a better tool.
? Don't use them to tighten or loosen polished plumbing fixtures or you'll scratch the surface. Protect the finish with a rag between the jaws and the fixture.
? Don't twist them sideways or you may put too much stress on the joint and loosen or break it.
? No matter what you see on The Three Stooges, never, ever use them to grab your brother's nose.
