Innovative Design Ensures Precision and Easy Handling
Irwin recognizes that effective pliers need to securely grip a variety of surfaces and also need to sit comfortably in your hand. Irwin's 10-Inch GrooveLock Pliers delivers on both fronts.

The innovative press-and-slide button allows for quick, easy adjustment of the lower jaw, saving you time and frustration. The V-shape of the jaws offers multipurpose performance and helps you handle round pieces, as well as square- or hex-shaped hardware. The jaws' right-angle teeth grip in all directions to help prevent slippage and ensure you avoid damaging the materials at hand.

In addition, the pliers' Multi-Groove Ratcheting System features twice as many groove positions than any other groove-joint pliers, so you get a precise hold as well as more ways for you to hold the pliers. This system's ratcheting action allows the pliers to be adjusted from the open position up to your work piece by pushing the handle up--no need to press the button or reposition.

Precision Parts for Durability and Performance
A metal injection molding (MIM) process is used to create the precision parts that make up the 10-Inch GrooveLock Pliers. This adds strength and durability to the pliers' build. Because this process allows for the consistent and affordable creation of complicated parts, it also plays a large part in ensuring accurate, reliable performance.

ProTouch Grips Provide Comfort and Control
A tool can only perform accurately if you're in complete control of it, and Irwin's trademarked ProTouch grips make it easy to handle the 10-Inch GrooveLock Pliers. Their non-slip, anti-pinch handle design provides improved comfort and control. Furthermore, since the well-balanced pliers operates comfortably, you can look forward to less hand fatigue when working on extended tasks and repetitive jobs.

While each pair of GrooveLock pliers is versatile enough to handle a wide variety of tasks, Irwin offers GrooveLock pliers in a variety of sizes with straight, smooth, and V-shaped jaws, so you can select the configurations that best match your most common applications.

The 10-Inch GrooveLock Pliers are backed by Irwin's VISE-GRIP lifetime warranty.

Size: 2-pack (8", 10")
There are basically two styles of "lock joint" pliers - "Channel Lock" style and this "button lock" style.

You can buy all grades of the Channel Locks, from Channel Lock Brand - which are good - all the way down to China Cheapos, which are not so good.

Until these Irwins the only "button lock" brand was Knipex - with their Cobras - made in Germany. I love Knipex Cobras. I have several pairs. They work great, they stay locked, they aren't difficult to adjust. I just don't like their price - which is about 4x what these Irwins go for.

If I have a pair of Channel Locks and a pair of button locks to choose from, I'll pick up the button locks every time - they are that much easier to use.

So I thought I would give these Irwins a try as a less expensive alternative to Knipex.

After about 18 months of use, I can report that they work very well. Are they as good as Knipex? Very nearly - I think the jaws are just slightly softer, or maybe a bit less sharp and the leverage geometry is not quite as good as Knipex. They don't seem to grab quite as hard as my Cobras.

I actually like the adjustment button and mechanism on these Irwins better than Knipex - and the Irwins are uniquely designed to ratchet shut without pushing the button - whereas the Cobras require a button push to open and close them.

I would not hestitate to buy these again, and for the price they cannot be beat.

I just got these for Christmas and they are great. They have a really sturdy feel to them and they slide up to synch down on what you are working with. It's a lot nicer than standard channel locks that you have to get the right size and you only have a few choices. These slide right to where you need them and you don't have to have them opened to a certain spot. The grips also feel comfortable enough to work with them for a good time without them hurting your hands. All in all they are great so far, I'll update if they end up breaking after use.

It would really help if you would think this review was helpful if you would click the yes button up top thanks :)

I grew up using Channel lock tongue and groove pliers and they work fine but I have broken a few pairs of them over the years and they don't have a lifetime guarantee so I started looking for an alternative brand that was guaranteed when I came across the Irwin brand. I was intrigued by the design so I decided to buy them. I work in the construction industry as an electrician and use these pliers almost daily to run conduit. I use them on conduit from 1/2 inch up to 2 inch. I have really been impressed by these pliers and will use them from now on. Properly adjusted they rival a pipe wrench in gripping power and the plastic coating on the handles really hold up well.

I have the larger set of pliers available in this combo pack; I purchased it several years ago when I was performing bathroom renovations. The tool has held up well and proven itself to be remarkably useful, and it has terrific bite- it really gives you a strong, reliable grip on just about anything, even things that are oftentimes slippery (like smooth, straight pipes). The build quality is fantastic, and the handles provide excellent traction in your hand, so you can really get at whatever you're working on.

What I love about the Irwin pliers is the way that you adjust them. There is a large, round button that you depress, and then the opening can be smoothly adjusted to whatever gap you desire. To me, this seems to work really well when selecting just the right size, as opposed to the traditional method by which groovelock-style pliers are adjusted.

Well designed and durable pliers. Easy to adjust with he push of a button and they never slip. The shape of the jaws allow for multiple uses at different angles. This will be the only brand of channel locks I ever buy again!

These are very good pliers. They are a welcome design upgrade over the old channel lock design. These pliers will stay where you set them. To increase the jaw capacity push the big IRWIN button and move the jaws apart. You can move the jaws together by just sliding the bottom jaw towards the top. That is, you can open the jaws wide, set the wrench on your pipe (or whatever), and push the bottom jaw up up to contact without pushing the button.

If you look at the Amazon picture you see two rivets in the lower jaw / upper handle. The newer version has the bottom jaw cast as one piece. This version is stronger. I bought mine at a box store so I don't know which version you'll get from Amazon, but that could just be an old picture.

I gave these pliers 4 stars instead of 5 because I own a 10" pair of Knipex pliers. Had I never used Knipex before, I would give the Irwin's 5 stars.

10" cobra pliers have the same pipe clamping capacity as the 12" groovelocks. Of course with a longer handle, you may be able to put more torque on the pipe. On the other hand, cobras have fantastic grip. The head thickness of the groovelock is 1/2", while the cobras head thickness is 5/16". This could come in handy for tight fits. The cobras are made in Germany and the grovelocks are made in China. This shows up in cost and quality.

If you earn a living using pliers I think your better off buying Knipex. If your using pliers around the house, these groovelocks will serve you well.
