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