Think of Knipex’s Pliers Wrench as a cross between an open-end wrench and a pair of really-accurate slip-joint pliers. They deliver the gripping strength of combination pliers with the precision of a wrench — a great way to prevent rounding off that chromed nut on your sink or repeatedly slipping off the bolts on your Harley.
Knipex’s Pliers wrenches are designed for installing delicate hardware that requires a smooth and firm grip. They act just like an adjustable wrench, but sans the adjustable’s wedge-style movement, they offer no backlash. Plus, their length and bend offers a 10-to-1 mechanical advantage. The pushbutton ratchet allows you to quickly adjust the size setting, while the handles still allow you to quickly disengage to reposition.
You can find them in 7”, 10”, and 12” sizes. And if you decide your next plumbing job might benefit from owning these, you can find the 10” for a street price of around $45.
