pince (outil) -> pliers

Une pince est un dispositif mécanique ou un outil, ayant pour fonction de pincer quelque chose d'autre, c'est-à-dire serrer pour saisir ou maintenir.

Pliers are a hand tool used to hold objects firmly, for cutting, bending, or physical compression. Generally, pliers consist of a pair of metal first-class levers joined at a fulcrum positioned closer to one end of the levers, creating short jaws on one side of the fulcrum, and longer handles on the other side. This arrangement creates a mechanical advantage, allowing the force of the hand's grip to be amplified and focused on an object with precision. The jaws can also be used to manipulate objects too small or unwieldy to be manipulated with the fingers.
