Hand conduit benders and handles are basic lever mechanisms that move metal pipe and conduit for worksite electrical installations using human strength and leverage. They're small, portable, and capable of transferring a lot of energy to readily achieve exact bends. Longer grips provide more leverage for bending. Electricians who conduct occasional bends such as 90° stub ups, offset bends, back-to-back bends, and three-point saddle bends should use hand benders.
