Gets the job done....but with a minor flaw
on December 30, 2011
Purchased this here at Amazon and I would say I am satisfied with it. It grabs the cable pretty firm which frees up my assisting hand thereby allowing me to fine-tune the amount of slack I wanted with the cable. This is pretty hard for me to accomplish with a long-nose pliers so for its price it's worth having in the toolbox. The only minor gripe that I have on this tool is when I use the locking tool to hold the desired slack on the cable and it happens to be a bit tight, it's really pretty hard to remove it. It happened to me twice so far and it takes quite a lot of wiggling and shaking just to break it loose. Now if anyone can point out the proper way to use this tool then I'm more than willing to correct this review. Until then, I'll stick with my stated gripe.
