Review

  • Says on the package that it was made to Irwin specs in Taiwan. You can tell when you handle it that it’s not well made. There is play in the bearings that makes it a bit sloppy. The back side of the jaws are not rounded so be careful or it will cut you. Cutting corners by not making them? It’s much more difficult to use than my old US made tool that looks like it but is 40 years old. There is little friction on the adjusting screw so it will not stay put – it’s always backing out, so if you grip something just right, let it go, then grip it again it’s loose. That makes it really hard to find just the right amount of pinch to do the job and not mash the object. If you don’t plan on using it much then it’s probably ok. If you rely on your tools, spend the extra money and get something better.
  • Cheaply made and feels junky..not the same quality they used to be. I read the reviews that said the same before purchasing, but couldn’t imagine the quality could be that inferior. I’m replacing one that is quite old, and even covered with old grease the older one feels of much higher quality. The fact that they are charging prices that suggest American made is enough to make me decide to not ever again purchase anything made by this company.
  • The price is good. It looks and functions like a cheap Chinese tool… Because it is. The tension screw hangs up at every revolution. The jaws are misaligned. The casting is crude. The finish is rough. Even the stamped product name… THE COMPANY BRAND is ugly.These are the last new vice grips I’ll buy. It’s a sad commentary that used tools are truly worth more than brand new.
  • Pliers are misaligned.. disappointing
  • As others have noted, the product is not as good as it used to be. I won’t buy again
  • When I clamp the end down on a screw, etc. and then twist, the two jaw pieces are too loose: they twist around one another and slips off. The jaws are on enough of an angle it i try to grab more of the screw, etc. it doesn’t grab anything. Honestly I don’t understand what this tool was designed to do or why it was made as it was.
  • I received my 4 inch long nose pliers yesterday and it looked just like the USA made 4 piece set I got years ago. However, when went to use them they were stiff. The spring could not open the jaws. After oiling the pivot points several times they still would not work as they should. Sent them back today. Maybe one bad unit or poor quality control? Might try another pair.
  • This is a worthy replacement for my original 4-inch Vise-Grip pliers, that wore out after 40 years of use and abuse. The locking action of the new tool is smooth and solid. The jaws are well aligned and slightly longer, by 3/16 inch than the original. A nice improvement is that the inside-ends of the jaws are knurled rather than simply grooved, so retention of small round parts, such as dowel pins, is much better. Not sure where all the prior negative reviews came from, but they don’t apply to the current product offering.
