Grip-on’s oddly shaped locking plier not only gives you 50% more force when you’re twisting it — the 70º-angled design also reduces strain on your wrist by keeping it straight. What’s more, the compact design lets this locking plier fit in places where no other plier can go.
You operate this 8″ plier one-handed, gripping it between your palm and fingers and using your thumb to adjust and release the jaws. The jaws open as wide as 1-5/8″, and they’ve got both straight and curved portions for use in multiple applications.
They’re made in Spain from hardened, cold-rolled steel. Grip-on covers one handle with an epoxy resin to resist corrosion and the other with a cushion grip to reduce slippage and increase comfort. This attention to construction allows Grip-on to guarantee these ergonomic locking pliers for life.
