Imagine having to reach into a very tight, narrow space in order to grab something small. Ordinary grippers will be useless, but this unusual tool has its hinge placed way down at the end of a long bent arm from 3-1/2 to 8" long. The small mouth opens up 1/4" and will grab whatever you need to retrieve. You'll be mighty glad you have it. The set of all 3 will allow you to reach almost anything.

  • 5-1/2 Alligator pliers

    Ken may, 3/3/2020 I often find myself repairing things in my shop and often I can’t get my fingers in these long reach claps are just the ting to get in those small spaces. I am a medical worker as well and these are high quality and your service was great!

  • New places to reach

    Greg Koshak, 11/29/2018 Well built of good material. Should be able to reach into all kinds of places to fix or create trouble as required.
  • Light-duty but good quality

    Phil, 9/8/2018 Calling these "pliers" is a bit of a misnomer, they are actually hemostats and therefore a lighter duty tool. I think the quality is good for the price in any case.
  • Alligator Pliers

    Joseph DeGiovanni, 7/27/2018 Alligator pliers worked well for me. I needed them to retrieve a lost brush in a furnace. It took awhile, but I was able to retrieve it.
  • Set of All 3 Alligator Pliers

  • Special Alligator Pliers used for basket making

    Don McCollom, 12/5/2017 Shhh.. Don't tell my wife I bought these for one of her Christmas presents. She makes baskets and needed Alligator pliers to help with the weaving. I tried them and they work well for her purpose. A happy wife implies a happy life.
  • Alligator Pliers

    Richard Wagner, 4/23/2017 As always the 8" alligator pliers were well made and up to my expectations. A useful tool.
  • Great Timing

    Chicago Redd, 12/30/2016 Used these babies fresh out of the box. Somehow a screw had fallen into my shredder. Still don't know how it got in there.(grandkids maybe) But the PERFECT solution for getting it out was these 3.5 in "gators". Thank You GW for sending the right polypus at the perfect time.
  • Just what I needed- yesterday. But also tomorrow.

    Tom, 9/6/2016 I had just spent over an hour at work fishing a small, dropped part out of an area inaccessible with anything I had in the toolbox. I get home, and in the mail is the Garrett Wade catalog with these pliers. Easiest sale ever made, they were ordered as fast as I could type. They were just what I had needed, and have used already in the short time I've had them. Not heavy duty, but just right for fine work.
  • More useful than expected

    Peter, 7/4/2016 I bought these pliers just to have in my toolbox in case of a rare occurance and I have had a few "rare occurances" already. As usual with GWC products, the quality is outstanding. Item is also useful in many types of projects.
  • Very Pleased

    Gerald, 6/1/2016 These alligator pliers are some of the handiest tools in my tool box. They are well made, and make getting into and working in difficult small areas much easier. Very pleased with the set.
  • Strange Little Pliers

    Elizabeth Taylor, 1/30/2015 This is a great tool for hard objects and also soft things like the stuffing in a doll's leg. I've used it in model-making, textile art, handling tiny screws, and swabbing inside a small motor. It is not strong enough for forceful action e.g. a frozen screw. My husband ruins them every year or so, then I happily buy a new pair. Note that the jaws are not parallel.
  • Reach Out

    Matt , 10/15/2013 These are great for reaching into small holes and grabbing string and small wires. For Computer work they make running the wires very easy. And if you drop a screw, washer, or nut into a confined area, no problem getting it out.
  • Musical Instrument Repair

    Matthew Jones, 9/28/2013 The 8 alligator pliers work quite well in getting out the various items that students seem to get stuck in the tuning slides of their brass instruments. They also work well in getting stuck cleaning swabs out of oboes. I highly recommend them to anyone involved in band instrument repair."
  • Fully Functional

    John Vandiver, 1/22/2013 These are ultra nifty pliers for a wide variety of uses. I had a medical quality pair in my youth we used as a roach clip. These are not quite as precise but outstanding for price.
  • Ear Polypus

    Mark Irwin, 12/8/2012 These are also handy when gluing to avoid getting glue all over. The technical name Ear Polypus" is what the medical profession calls them. Great for removing wandering earwigs from your ears, I guess."
  • luthier's helper

    Randy Plachy, 1/8/2011 Great for guitar repair. Excellent for getting to those places where you can't reach. Easy to get into those archtop guitars or mandolins.
  • Great little tool....

    KK, 4/15/2010 I purchased one of these just as an after thought and it has been amazing how many uses I have found for it since, particularly working in odd angle, tight spaces.
