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.

  • Great In A Pinch

    Dick, 6/26/2015 I had a little project to do this morning that depended on holding a small clip in a flush valve chain open so I could change a flush valve seal. I have thousands of dollars worth of tools, non of which were working, and then I remembered I have a box of new tools on the kitchen table. I realized I had these great little forceps in that order and the curved pair was just what I needed to hold open the chinchy little clip that connected the flush valve to the chain. Long story short these little tools helped me fix a some what simple problem with almost no cussing or tool throwing.
  • Handyman's Handy Tools

    Frank Hansel, 4/13/2015 I used to be a business machine tech. I had a pair of medical hemostats, greatest tool for holding small parts to put in a tight spot. I lost my stats so here's hoping these will do the same.
  • Great Product!

    Karen, 1/18/2015 The locking tweezers are perfect! My husband makes fishing lures and when he's working with small beads he had trouble holding them with regular tweezers. The locking tweezers solved the problem for him! They hold the beads securely and he doesn't drop them all over the floor. Once the lure is made, he just unlocks the tweezers and voila! No lost beads. I would highly recommend this product.
  • Handy Tools

    Rob Burns, 12/26/2014 Thesmall, precise locking tools" are extremely handy for removing the paper / cardboard seal on pill bottles. It is much easier than trying to use my fingers and also easier than using a knife or scissors to make a slit in the top. I've also used the tweezers to hold an eyeglass screw in place so that I could turn the screw with a tiny screwdriver. Well worth the money. They have already paid for themselves."
  • Stuck Closed By Plastic Coating

    Manny, 4/5/2014 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.

    Patricia Stout, 12/10/2013 Really great for my craft projects.
  • Poorly Made Pliers

    Tim Douglas, 8/5/2013 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

    Charles McGrath lll, 1/2/2013 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

    Debbie, 12/28/2012 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.
