With a length of 16” and a capacity of 3-3/8”, the new pliers wrench XL features excellent gripping, holding, pressing and bending by employing a 10-to-1 lever ratio.
The push-button, positive-locking mechanism allows for a wide range of adjustment positions while the gripping jaws remain parallel regardless of handle position. With smooth jaws, the pliers wrench holds the full surface of a nut or bolt and will not slip or round out the fastener. It will not damage or mar workpieces, making it ideal for work on chrome-plated fittings or soft metals.
KNIPEX’s pliers wrench XL is lighter in weight and outperforms when compared to conventional open-end wrenches of the same capacity. Its unique ratcheting action allows for extremely fast turns of nuts and bolts without having to reset the tool.
“This new, larger pliers wrench tool combination frees up tool box space by eliminating the need for a set of SAE or metric wrenches,” said Alan W. Sipe, president and general manager, KNIPEX Tools. “Having a pliers and a wrench in a single, innovative tool provides users with the function of gripping pliers and the versatility of a wrench, while also working like a ratchet.”
Constructed from high-quality, chrome-vanadium steel that has been forged and oil-hardened for strength, the pliers wrench has a slip-resistant, plastic-coated handle.
