Grip pliers from KNIPEX:

Pliers and vice in one

Pliers are ideal when you need a firmer grip for something. However, while most pliers serve as hand extensions and must be held in place, the grip pliers from KNIPEX, also known as locking pliers, are particularly characterised by their adjusting screw, which means that they can be fixed and no longer have to be held during work. This enables the enormous advantage of freehand work.

As a result, grip pliers are primarily used in metal processing. A feature of the clamping work is the high clamping pressure that is transferred to the object by means of toggle lever action.

The craftsman reliably fixes the components to be welded with the welding pliers and can then fully concentrate on his welding work with both hands.
