The pliers in this photo are squeezed together about half-way opening the jaws proportionally. The spring exerts force between the handles keeping the jaws closed until the handles are pressed together. The jaws are knurled on the outside for improved grip. Notice the recess in the tips which allows that side of the tip to fit into openings that are quite small. The recess also allows the operator a choice in how the pliers are oriented relative to the work. The pliers can approach the work head on using the entire tip, or they can approach the work at 90* by using the recessed portion of the tips. These approaches are shown  in the next photos.
