We’ve always heard positive things from readers (and friends) regarding Knipex’s offerings, so we’re thinking about giving these auto-adjusting pliers a try.  As you can see in the picture, they’re pretty much standard slip-joint pliers, but a second joint in the middle lets them automatically slip to the correct size. 

Street pricing starts around $40, though there don’t seem to be a ton of people selling ’em right now. 

It sounds quite convenient, but most of the ones I’ve come across were manufactured by low-end brands.  My guess: if Knipex thinks it’s worth manufacturing, it probably works.

Have any of you used these?

Note: I’d link the Knipex site directly, but a) there’s not much additional information there, and b) the site’s having some XML programming troubles.

    I hope these work better than what Robogrip did for pliers. Knowing Knipex, they’re probably excellent. I’ll stick to my “manual” Cobras though….
