Just think of it for a minute. You're trying to hold onto something (or hold two things together) in the midst of a complicated work step and need to let go for a minute - but don't have three hands. The virtue of a precision locking pliers is obvious. The two Clamps (one straight and the other with a curved tip) are overall 5" long with a gripping length is 1-1/2". Available as a pair. PVC coated stainless steel.

And the Slide Locking Tweezer is simply a gem of a tool. Only 5-1/2" long, this small Tweezer opens to 1/2" and closes with a sliding fitting that works with thumb pressure. The closure stay where you leave it so control is precise and firm. We really like it and so will you. Stainless steel. Get all three at the same time for an even better value.

Stuck Closed By Plastic Coating
Reviewed By:   (San Diego, CA) 
I received the pliers a couple of days ago, and still have not been able to open them. I guess I will have to put more effort into this. Like cutting the plastic off. I see I am not the only one with this problem.

Thank you for your review on the Locking Pliers. We are sorry you experienced this problem. This happens occasionally. Our technician has advised that you grasp one loop in the left hand and the other loop in the right hand. Lift slightly with one hand and press down with the other. They will open without needing to cut anything. If you have further questions, please feel free to call our 1-800 number and ask to speak to our technical department.

Poorly Made Pliers
Reviewed By:   (Burlington, VT) 
When I opened the package I discovered that both of the pliers were stuck firmly to the plastic bags. After getting them out by ripping the bags apart, it turned out that the rubber coating on the handles completely covered the entire top half of the pliers and was still tacky. I had to cut away a large chunk of it to get them to open. Now, I have two pliers that work fine, but look really bad.

Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
Thank you for your review on the Locking Pliers. The rubber coating on these is just a tad sticky. It seems that they somehow were subjected to high temperatures during shipment which has caused the coating on the tool to stick to the plastic bag. Please feel free to return them and request that they be removed from the plastic bag before we ship them out to you. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

Locking pliers
Reviewed By:   (Westerly, Rhode Island) 
When they dipped them in the red rubber they should have covered the locking part. You have to cut them apart.

Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on this item. We have not known the rubber dip to be a problem. We’re sorry that you received one that had this fault. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

Professional Set
Reviewed By:   (Atlanta, GA) 
This is a beautifully crafted little set. Much better than the old suture kit I have been using for crafting. Bought one for hubby, too, a budding woodworker. He was thrilled.
