Rothenberger’s 10″ self-adjusting ROGRIP pliers grip pipes, bolts, sheet goods, and more with just a single hand. Just put the object in the jaws and squeeze the handles — no slip jaws, screws, or ratcheting required — and they’ll automatically adjust to any object up to 1-5/8″ in diameter.

The pliers are made from drop-forged chrome-vanadium steel coated with DURAMANT, which gives the tool its red color and protects it from wear. The jaws with double hardened teeth have insets for gripping both round and hexagonal objects. Cushioned handles provide an anti-slip grip, and their finger guard design protects you from getting pinched.

Pricing for the ROGRIP starts at $40.

    Whats better about these versus Robogrips?

  2. @ krj and jesse:

    I’m not sure it’s a question of what’s better, but what’s different. The RoGrips are aimed at the plumbing market and the Robogrips are aimed at a more general market. The ROGRIPS are definitely more expensive, but usually tools aimed at a specialized market are.

    I haven’t used either Robogips or ROGRIPS. My limited contact comes from picking them up in the store

    Rothenberger plumbing tools are showing up more and more this side of the Atlantic to compete with brands like Ridgid, Reed and Wheeler Rex. With many tools being sourced to Chinese or Taiwanese manufacturing plants – if the Rothenberger line is being produced in Europe – that might be one reason for the higher price.

    We’ve looked at some of their specialty tools – like those for swaging tees


    and their pipe threading machines (in case our old Osters can no longer be serviced) – but we have yet to buy either of these.

    BTW – I see that they have teamed up with Textron-Greenlee for some sort of joint venture

    Robogrips are stamped steel that is stacked and riveted (a pretty neat idea, IMHO). These look forged or cast.

    Appears to be the same mechanism, though. Maybe the robogrip patent finally ran out.

    I have been using my Robogrips all the time for years…. they work great! I agree… it is probably an expired patent.
