    I would think if you were trying to demonstrate a plier with a special ability for screw extracting, then that would be what you would make your video of not showing some plier pulling a couple of 1/4" spade connectors off the spades. Anything that grips will do that like a thumb and forefinger

    $45 at Amazon

    https://www.amazon.com/VAMPLIERS-Lin...13&sr=8-2&th=1

    I have the less expensive version - Engineer brand from Japan - $27

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    They are beautifully made and finished and work really well removing screws with damaged heads.

    Another beautiful and useful tool from the same maker is these compact shop scissors...

    The teeth on one of the blades makes it easy to cut slippery materials that want to try to escape from ordinary scissors.

    No arguing they appear to be well designed and hopefully well made. My issue was the content chosen for their advert. I can pull spade connectors off with my fingers, if not then I always have my Smith& Wesson folding pocket needle nosed plier semi multi tool to rely on.
    I have a Pair of Klien lineman's pliers that have deep knurled hardened jaws which will grip most anything, They are great for gripping the rounded heads of slotted screws as well

    Not to mention.......anything that CAN extract buggered screws is worth demonstrating. A $45 zip-tie cutter? That's too much disposable income, maybe OK for an overpaid shill.
    Poking steel tools into an electrical enclosure? Not a good habit; live or not. I'm not convinced those stylish (hard to clean) grips pass for 600v insulation.
    All said, Marv's find, the alternate screw-removal pliers are reasonable enough.
