Super Irwin 12" pliers
28 Aug 2011
By Vtwinrider
, Norfolk
" I bought these pliers to do a simple plumbing job, not expecting them to last more than 5 minutes. However, at this price they are superb. Well made with strong pivot and good gripping jaws.
If you need a good tool at a great price, these will not disappoint. 5 stars all the way.

Grips like a vice
14 Aug 2014
By Robinio
, Mansfield
" These are amaxing value for money. Bought to replace an old pair of pipe wrenches which were awful (and more expensive). These have a much more positive action and the grip and they feel very well made.
Have used a few times and always performed exceptionally.

" Not used them much but seem very good quality. just a point worth noting though, the description is incorrect, these do not have the "Quick Adjusting Press-n-Slide Button" - this applies to the other 2 sizes too "

VERY GROOVY JOINT PLIERS
16 Aug 2012
By DIDit
, Bristol
" Expand to B I G . Useful for eg. Plastic nut on Cistern Syphon Outlet Valves, etc, where usual size adjustable wrenches/mole grips won't stretch to.
Quality, well made, solid and quite precise. Handle-cover material could maybe do with a little more grip for hands. But good general tool (not to replace spanners and wreck nuts, except where absolutely necessary !).
Reasonable weight (lighter than a Stillson for non-pro-Plumbers) and a welcome long-term addition to my toolbox.
All-in-all, Good Value, Very Groovy, almost no Joint too big and made my nuts go tight without wrecking them... :-) "

Get a grip!
1 Aug 2011
By MusoPlumber
, Hertfordshire
" I bought these for a plumbing job which required 2 pairs of 'pump pliers'. They were the cheapest pair I could find (much cheaper than my original pair) & frankly, I wasn't expecting much....how wrong I was!
They are a very nicely made, quality pair, a match IMO for the much more expensive Rothenberger item.
They adjust size in a positive, easy manner & the handles give a nice grip.
Buy them, you won't be dissapointed! "

" A very decent set of pliers for very reasonable money. Good quality and well made.
Just the job for backnuts/syphon nuts and large fittings. Good handgrips and easy to work with. Well worth having. "
