Power tool with marathon qualities for industry

Infinite adjustment, effortless self-locking action

Knipex pipe wrench 83 20 020 is adjusted directly on the workpiece with a literal flick of the wrist: twist the knurled screw to open the jaws, place the outer handle over the workpiece, press down the inner handle, turn the knurled screw – done. This infinite adjustment enables the tool to be adjusted quickly to the user's hand, whatever the workpiece dimensions in the capacity range. Just a little pressure locks the wrench handle onto the workpiece in the direction of rotation. This very useful self-locking action greatly facilitates the application of high torques with Knipex pipe wrenches, as all the force can flow in the direction of rotation. When the direction of rotation changes, the wrench is reversed to maintain the self-locking action.

High-efficiency, torsion-resistant pipe pliers

With a total length of 570 mm, the Knipex 83 20 020 pipe pliers apply high gripping force via the pliers head to the workpiece, e.g. a threaded fitting. The leverage is already noticeable in one-handed operations. The 45° angle of the pliers jaw offers stable, parallel support for flat parts, fittings and nuts even when the pliers are opened wide.
