    I would like to set up a pair of pliers on a lanyard..right now my only option is trying to drill through one of the handles..Anyone out there do it a differnet way, or have any tricks for drilling? Thanks

    You can by "Para-cord" (also called 550 cord) at a surplus store. Wrap the handles as tightly as possible with the cord, and leave the end to make a lanyard. If you drill, get a good drill bit, and use a drill press. Also, while drilling, put oil on the hole (to cool the bit, and help remove bits of metal)

      I wouldn't drill the handle. The para-cord wrapped tightly is a good idea. Then you'll have pliers and an extra length of cord if needed.

        If your using the pliers for removing fish hooks try hemostats instead. Check pharmacies and get a heavy duty pair.

          Why not get someone to spot weld an eyelet on for you?

            I think welding would leave a rough edge, plus the eyelet could break.

              I go with the tack weld a ring inside the end of the handle. I drilled through mine with no trouble.
