Good Pliers

"Good pliers but you will need a strong grip to hold on to these when tightening large nuts."

FatMax Pliers
19 Sep 2012
By DJNelsonHeating
, Andover
"Overall a good tool priced about right.
It has a good grip and a solid construction which you'd expect from a good brand such as FatMax.
The only minor downside is the push button - whilst great to 'lock' the pliers at the right size, if you use with the button facing against a surface whilst gripping (i.e. the wrong way up), then the button can be accidentally pushed in, causing it to 'unlock'."

get a grip

"Product does what it says on the package, will grip nuts to tighten/loosen. Bit on the flimsy side though, ok for diy- ers, but not tough enough for professionals"

Too big for comfort
15 Jun 2012
By Anonymous
, Harrow, Middlesex
"Thinking that Stanley was a name to trust, I bought this pair of rather expensive pliers. Well they may be robust and have a fancy push button adjustment, but they are really uncomfortable, feeling too big in my average to large hands. Workmates have tried them and had the same problem. Shame Stanley didn't get a plumber to product test before they started making them."

FatMax Needs Fat Hands
16 Mar 2011
By Vini
, Dartford Kent
"Even for a 15mm pipe fitting you need large hands to get around the handle of this tool, at a glance you think the slide lock feature when opening would keep the grips at the same distance apart when opening for larger fittings but alas this is not the case, so big hands needed for this tool, Vini, Dartford,Kent"
