The pliers wrench, from KNIPEX, eliminates the need for a full set of wrenches by providing the functions of a pliers and a wrench all-in-one tool. The new pliers wrench features excellent gripping, holding, pressing and bending by employing a 10-to-1 lever ratio. With smooth jaws, the pliers wrench will not damage or mar work pieces, making it ideal for work on chrome-plated fittings or soft metals.
The push-button, positive-locking mechanism allows for a wide range of adjustment positions while the gripping jaws remain parallel regardless of handle position. Parallel jaws hold the full surface of a nut or bolt and will not slip or round out the fastener. Pliers wrench models are available in sizes ranging from 6- to 12-inches, with capacities from 0 to 1 ¼ inches. Comfort grips are available on the 6- to 10-inch models and the 10-inch pliers grip is available in an insulated style.
“This new KNIPEX tool combination frees up tool box space by eliminating the need for a set of SAE or metric wrenches,” said Alan W. Sipe, president and general manager, KNIPEX Tools. “This innovative tool combines the function of gripping pliers and a wrench, while also working like a ratchet with no need to reset the tool.” Constructed from high-quality, chrome-vanadium steel with a slip-resistant, plastic-coated handle, the pliers wrench outperforms conventional adjustable wrenches.
