While locking pliers are often thought of as somewhat crude tools, these stand apart with a design that’s more refined than others we’ve seen. Made in Spain by a company that has specialized in locking pliers for over 35 years, they have a rugged all-steel construction with a tough epoxy coating for resistance to wear and corrosion.
The release mechanism is particularly well designed – just a light one-finger squeeze on the lever unlocks the jaws without a struggle and without them springing open abruptly. Aside from their obvious use as pliers, we find the smaller sizes particularly excel when used as a hand vise to grip items firmly without your fingers getting in the way.
The master set includes 5”, 7”, 10” and 12” regular-jaw pliers, 6”, 10” and 12” long-jaw pliers, plus a pair of jobsite holders, allowing you to mount any two of the pliers to create a work-holding set-up spanning virtually any length you need.
Excellent tools that are sure to become workshop favorites.
