Irwin recognizes that effective pliers need to securely grip a variety of surfaces and also need to sit comfortably in your hand. Irwin’s 8-Inch Groove Lock Pliers deliver on both fronts.
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.
