Great tool for plumbing
17 Apr 2015
By
, Hampshire
" This is a fabulous tool.
Used it to reach in on plumbing unions, locked it on and pinched the nut tight in seconds instead of tens of minutes.
Worth the extra money over cheaper plumbers grips etc, the locking mechanism makes the job easier by far.

Get a grip!
28 May 2013
By
, West Midlands
" Checked previous reviews before buying. I have larger than normal sized hands and so found no issues whatever with the grips. The push button lock has worked extremely well and so far i can say I have never used a better adjustable grip.
I'm very pleased with my purchase.

" Shame they were out of stock of the larger one that I selected from the book but these are fine.
I like the fact you have to press a button to adjust the width and there are a lot of steps in the adjustment.
Stronger than they look! "

Irwin's are the better bet.
22 Jul 2014
By
, Sussex
" Had an old pair of the Irwin Vise-Grip pliers and got a pair of these to use together and also to see if they were a better product...their not, IMO the Irwin's are much better, the Fat Max's jaws got blunt very quickly and the metal seems quite a low standard and they certainly will not last as long as the Irwin's.

Not good enough for daily use
15 Feb 2016
By
, Preston
" Sorry, but must disagree with many positive reviews.
I've used these a few times now for tightening cable glands & locknuts. They are starting to distort, so that the jaws don't line up fully and they slip off the locknuts.
I love the principle, but they just need to be a bit more solid on the joint mechanism.
I think they'e ok rather than good. "

useless
25 Sep 2014
By
, belfast
" Button locked first time I used them to tightin steel pipe. Now have to hit the button with a hammer everytime I want to release it. They bent out of shape when tighting bushes and the hand grips came loose. The teeth holding the button are wearing away very quick causing it to slip and takes time to get them to lock where you want it. Worst hand tool I've ever bought waste of time and money. "

Absolutely Useless
21 May 2014
By
, Havant
" This is the most useless tool I have purchased in years. The specification states that it has a jaw capacity of 62 mm. If you want to use this capacity, the design needs the throat depth to allow a nut 62mm across flats or pipe of 62mm to be gripped. Unfortunately the throat depth is relatively small so nothing of a decent size can be gripped. Total waste of money! "

Failed under light use
17 Nov 2012
By
, Bradford
" Initially appear well made and the pattern almost idenitical to more expensive makes. The push button action is nice to use.
However after hardly any use within the first year the pliers broke. The groove joint under the button failed after trying to open a union nut, so the plier no longer locks on the settings. The teeth wore very quickly and lost grip. The cushion handles slowly slid off too.
I have had no problem with more expensive German made pliers like CK and NWS, it proves is worth paying more for a robust and reliable tool for trade use. "
