LockJaw Self-Adjusting Locking Pliers

lockjaw.jpgThe LockJaw has taken the traditional Vise-Grip design and made it better (on paper at least, we haven't tried them yet). What LockJaw has done is made pliers that self-adjust to the thickness of the material that you're grabbing and in doing this, they've removed the dial a the end of the handle. As if this isn't cool enough, they've added a dial between the handles that controls the grabbing pressure.

We love our Vise-Grips, but the thought of not having to fuss with that dial every time we grab something different is a good one. We see this tool as a serious time saver in the right hands.

There are a number of different sized pliers available. The pricing is about the same as a standard pair of Vise-Grips.

10" at Amazon.com ($14)
6" at Amazon.com ($14)
Needle Nose at Amazon.com ($15)
Set with 6", 10" and 9" Needle Nose at Amazon.com ($39)
