Bolt cutters, sometimes called bolt croppers, are tools used for cutting chains, padlocks, bolts and wire mesh. Originally as the name suggests used to cut bolt seals from shipping containers at the delivery point. They typically have long handles and short blades, with compound hinges to maximize leverage and cutting force. There are different types of cutting blades for bolt cutters, including angle cut, center cut, shear cut, and clipper cut blades. Bolt cutters are available usually in 12, 14, 18, 24, 30, 36 and 42 inches in length. The length is measured from the tip of the jaw to the end of the handle. Angle cut has the cutter head angled for easier insertion. Typical angling is 25 to 35 degrees. Center cut has the blades equidistant from the two faces of the blade. Shear cut has the blades inverted to each other (such as normal paper scissor blades). Clipper cut has the blades flush against one face (for cutting against flat surfaces).
