Naming convention[edit]

Dikes[edit]

why are diagonal pliers called dikes?

I'm going to edit all the "diag" references to "dikes" because diag simply cannot be pronounced dike. which is the only way i've ever heard it pronounced. discuss or revert if you disagree Danomagnum (talk) 06:21, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Side cutting pliers[edit]

In the first paragraph after explaining "Diagonal pliers" the following statement can be read: "Commonly confused with side cutting pliers." I was not aware that there was a difference between side cutters and diagonal cutters, and after spending a few minutes googling the subject I could not find anything that differentiated the two. Hence I suggest that this sentence is removed and "side cutting pliers" is added to the list of alternative names for diagonal cutters. EV1TE (talk) 00:13, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
