    Needle-nose pliers are a tool commonly used to hold small parts. They have long, slender jaws that taper to a point, allowing them to reach into tight spaces and grasp small objects securely. Their design provides precision and control, making them ideal for tasks that require delicate handling of small components, such as jewelry-making, electronics repair, or model building. Unlike tweezers, which have two separate prongs, needle-nose pliers have a single, continuous jaw that can firmly grip objects without slippage. Therefore, needle-nose pliers are the correct tool for holding small parts.
