December 10, 2014 – Milwaukee Tool expanded its hand tool offering (and the recently launched line of Torque Lock) locking tools with several gripped locking plier options in both curved jaw and long-nose styles.

Featuring the patent-pending Torque Lock adjustment system, the locking pliers deliver an “innovative solution” (inspired by a common user modification) for adjusting the size of the gripping jaws while secured to material: a unique screwdriver through-hole design to produce maximum locking force with a much faster and controlled set up. The new gripped models will feature a control release design for easy one-handed release. Each tool also features hardened jaws for more gripping power on jobsite material, and is made from chrome-plated forged alloy steel for durability and rust protection.
