The innovative press-and-slide button allows for quick, easy adjustment of the lower jaw, saving you time and frustration. The V-shape of the jaws offers multipurpose performance and helps you handle round pieces, as well as square- or hex-shaped hardware. The jaws' right-angle teeth grip in all directions to help prevent slippage and ensure you avoid damaging the materials at hand.
In addition, the pliers' Multi-Groove Ratcheting System features twice as many groove positions than any other groove-joint pliers, so you get a precise hold as well as more ways for you to hold the pliers. This system's ratcheting action allows the pliers to be adjusted from the open position up to your work piece by pushing the handle up--no need to press the button or reposition.
Precision Parts for Durability and Performance
A metal injection molding (MIM) process is used to create the precision parts that make up the 8-Inch GrooveLock Pliers. This adds strength and durability to the pliers' build. Because this process allows for the consistent and affordable creation of complicated parts, it also plays a large part in ensuring accurate, reliable performance.
ProTouch Grips Provide Comfort and Control
A tool can only perform accurately if you're in complete control of it, and Irwin's trademarked ProTouch grips make it easy to handle the 8-Inch GrooveLock Pliers. Their non-slip, anti-pinch handle design provides improved comfort and control. Furthermore, since the well-balanced pliers operate comfortably, you can look forward to less hand fatigue when working on extended tasks and repetitive jobs.
While each pair of GrooveLock pliers is versatile enough to handle a wide variety of tasks, Irwin offers GrooveLock pliers in a variety of sizes with straight, smooth, and V-shaped jaws, so you can select the configurations that best match your most common applications.
The 8-Inch GrooveLock Pliers are backed by Irwin's VISE-GRIP lifetime warranty.
