THE WORLD'S LIGHTEST AND MOST COMFORTABLE CLECO PLIER. BORN FROM A ZENITH 750 PROJECT! We have radically changed the 80 year old design of the cleco plier with a new patented design.

Hi guys, 

I am a 750 builder and am almost done with my project. Just need to attach doors and windows, and the finished wings and tail over the next 60 days. 

Anyway, in the course of building my plane, I got really irritated (literally) with the current cleco plier that we use on a daily basis. After tinkering around with a couple of cardboard and plastic prototypes, I patented a new cleco plier design that we released yesterday for sale. 


I am very proud to say that if it was not for the 600 hours working on my Zenith, I would have 1/10th of the working knowledge about engines and airplanes that I have acquired through this process. Even after flying for 14 years, I did not even scratch the surface of knowledge about engines, building methods, etc. until I started this project.  And it is this knowledge that helped me bring this product to market. So Kudos to the home building process! It can build an airplane and a business!

We have received 520+ orders in just the last 24 hours, and I hope that you will find this creation to be as important to your project as I did mine. We really think it will save you a ton of time and pain. 

The pliers are currently 20% off of the normal price until Oct 1st. 

I look forward to continuing to help the Zenith community grow. Please contact me with any questions or feedback.

Clecall Upright Cleco Pliers is proud to announce two things! First, we have included spring loading in every order! Part of the delay in shipping was to integrate a spring that makes the process of applying clecos so easy! It keeps the handle open rather than having to open it with an awkward finger movement! All orders will have it if you placed it after 9/15.

Second, we are proud to announce that Aircraft Spruce will be our exclusive distributor! They will reduce shipping costs, increase customer service, and decrease processing times! You can order The World's Lightest and Most Comfortable Cleco Pliers at

Finally, I got my first T-hangar today!!! Super excited and had to wait forever! Now the wings and tail will be attached!
