When we saw these, we experienced one of those “why didn’t we think of this” moments. Thankfully, Knipex did think of it — water pump pliers with an extended, narrow jawset which can fit into all sorts of little, tight spaces.
There’s not much to say about these that you can’t figure out just from looking at the picture (right), except to point out that they also have a large number of lock grooves, which’ll make it easier to set an exact adjustment.
Knipex offers these in a variety of sizes, ranging from 7″ starting at around $20 all the way up to 22″ sets that go for more like $85. We found a number of sets available online as well.
And, if you need a pair of these right now, you can often find them at your local Sears store as well as in some other retailers’ shops.
