ABOUT IRWIN VISE-GRIP GROOVELOCK PLIERS
Because having the right tool for the job is every tradesman’s demand, IRWIN® Tools is introducing two new jaw configurations to its line of best-in-class IRWIN VISE-GRIP® GrooveLock Pliers. The new jaw designs—perfect for plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, and maintenance and repair professionals—include Smooth Jaws and Straight Jaws that feature GrooveLock’s patented press-and-slide-button technology. This “magic button” feature, first introduced on GrooveLock’s V-Jaws, adjusts the lower jaw two times faster than any other adjustable tongue-and-groove pliers, providing unmatched speed and precision-adjustability on the job. The GrooveLock all-purpose jaws adjust to grip flat, round, hex and square surfaces, making this tool ideal for any number of plumbing, electrical and automotive applications.
The IRWIN VISE-GRIP GrooveLock line of pliers includes lengths from 6-inch, 8-inch, 10-inch, 12-inch, up to 20-inches. Jaw capacity sizes range from 1-1/8” to 6”.
I’m one of those girls that doesn’t mind trying to do a small project once in a while. When I want to try and get something done I generally have to use my husband’s tools. If I ask him to use one of his tools I inevitably get a sigh, like I’m bothering him. So, my solution is to start building a small toolbox full of my own tools. Recently I received a some Irwin Vise-Grip Groovelock Pliers. I found these pliers to be sturdy and not too heavy, and the grip very comfortable. I’ve had problems in the past with my husband’s adjustable pliers – I couldn’t get them to adjust at all or I couldn’t get them adjusted to where they needed to be. The Irwin Vise-Grip Groovelock Pliers were easy to adjust and didn’t slip while I was using them, a problem I’d had with other adjustable pliers. To adjust all you have to do is press the button and slide to the position you want. Also these were able to be adjusted to far more positions then the pliers my husband has. It’s probably no small coincidence that my husband snagged my pliers and put them into his toolbox. I’ve already taken them back, he just doesn’t know it yet.
GrooveLock pliers can be found at home centers, hardware stores and industrial tool distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada. The suggested retail price of the 6”, 8”, 10” and 12” GrooveLock pliers ranges from $10.99 to $19.99. The suggested retail price for the 16” GrooveLock is $34.99 and the 20” is $44.99.
