By Anthony Capkun
Smooth and straight jaw options are now available on Irwin Tools’ Vise-Grip GrooveLock pliers, which feature a patented press-and-slide button technology. This sliding feature, boasts Irwin, adjusts the lower jaw 2x faster than any other adjustable tongue-and-groove pliers, adding that the pliers also include two times the groove positions. Additional features of the pliers include: right-angle tooth grip in all directions for maximum bite; and anti-pinch ProTouch grips provide extra comfort, reduce hand fatigue, and prevent pinching. The GrooveLock line includes lengths from 6 in., 8 in., 10 in., 12 in. up to 20 in., while jaw sizes range from 1 1/8 in. to 6 in.
