Ratchet Shears are NOT RECOMMENDED to cut PVC or CPVC for solvent cement weld connections because hairline fractures may occur when cutting PVC or CPVC. Instead use Reed Quick Release™ Tubing Cutters.

Exclusive Feature

Why Reed

Broader base and 7-step ratcheting mechanism on Ratchet Shears RS1/RS1PL T models mean square cuts are easily attained with minimal clearance.

Ratchet shears with hardened steel blades are ideal for cutting PVC, PE, PP, PEX and ABS pipe. RS1PLT, RS7290 and RSP1 ratchet shears offer the thinnest blades with a finish that moves them smoothly through pipe. Due to its long handles that add leverage, the RS2  is good for cutting up to 2" pipe. One-hand models RS1 and RS1PLT offer a 7-step ratchet mechanism for best mechanical advantage and smoothest operation. RS1PLT is unique with a corrosion-resistant, nickel-plated, steel blade. Pointed blade in one-hand model RSP1 helps start the cut in tough plastics and helps avoid bounce in thin wall material. The two-hand RS2 features 2” capacity, extra wide, v-style jaws for easy alignment, and long handles for leverage on tough-to-cut pipe. RS7290 one-hand style, 2” capacity ratchet shears cut pipe used in gas, water, plumbing, and industrial applications, as do the other ratchet shears. All ratchet shears’ blades can be easily sharpened or replaced, enhancing performance and saving money. These tools are not disposable and perform better, longer, and for less money over the tool’s lifetime.


Ratchet Shears are NOT recommended to cut PVC or CPVC for Solvent Cement Weld Connections. Instead use Quick Release Tubing Cutters with wheels for PVC.
