Space Pliers

This tool is just a simple set of pliers with the addition of full wrap around handles so the user can open and close the plier with their force (instead of spring or tension of some sort to keep pliers open), and these pliers come with holes at the bottom of the frame so 2 of them can be attached together by string. The reason for this is that I intend the pliers to be used in a pair. in space there is no gravity, therefore, when you turn on pliers or a wrench, you can't use your weight to counterbalance the force you applied. Using 2 pliers, one can hold onto the piece that needs turned and the other can be used to apply force in the other direction so you can easily turn the part needed.
