The metal teeth on these vise grips are already worn down from minimal use. I expected better quality from Irwin Tools. I would not buy this product again.

First off, Amazon is the greatest, and they are always my first on-line location for purchases. Purchased these small vice grips for a project working with small devices. The first attempt at use yielded two screw heads being scratched/messed up due to the vice grips continually slipping off the screws. I carefully looked at the jaws of the vice grips and immediately saw that they are mis-aligned from the factory - it looks like they are molded improperly. Irwin - that is bad, bad, bad; unacceptable, no excuse. Amazon - my guess is all the 4WRs have mis-aligned jaws.

My husband likes to carry a pair of these around in a pants pocket, just in case, and they do come in handy quite often. His old pair finally wore out and he couldn't find a replacement pair without the plastic handles, which he definitely did NOT want. As Amazon has everything, I bought him a couple of pairs here, and he is quite happy with them.

I went to my local hardware store specifically to purchase a pair of vice grips but I discovered that they are now made in China. The external appearance was different as well - instead of the shiny chrome look I was familiar with they now have a more matte finish. By moving the manufacturing overseas Irwin has removed the main advantage over its competitors as I can no longer rely on their established quality. Now that they are playing the low-cost game I plan on doing the same myself and will now simply buy my locking pliers based on price alone.

got these to attempt removing a broken-off seized 3/8" bolt in a very tight spot (couldn't drill). they are actually smaller than i was expecting, but that turned out to be a good thing. the curved part of the jaw actually fit into the spot where the curved part of my 6" needle nose vise-grips couldn't. after 3 progressive adjustments i had it so tight that it clamped grooves into the bolt. with a night of penetrating oil, and a breaker bar over the grips it finally squeaked free. the only minus was that the jaws were noticeably mangled after the event, but the bolt was probably hardened, and that was a ton of leverage on such a small tool.

Hard to find a 4" Vice Grip, but it is so versatile and handy to have. Small enough to fit in my pocket if needed. Ever since having one over 25 years ago, it has become a must-have tool (in a garage full of tools). It has gotten me out of jams countless times, including being stuck in the middle of the desert on my dirtbike.

This was just as described...keep in mind that these are smaller vice grips, not the standard size, however it was just what I wanted and needed.

What is there to say about Vise Grips, except that they rock. This tiny pair is perfect to keep in my briefcase for those times when you don't have the right tool, but don't want to make a trip out to the truck to get it. I have Vise Grips in almost every size they make, and they have been lifesavers time and time again. Don't buy the knockoffs though ... spend the extra money and get the originals!
