I color code my kitchen. I recently had a baby and a lot of the baby stuff I bought (not on purpose) is green. Like my Boon grass bottle/dish rack, the OXO TOT baby line of cups, bowls, and utensils, etc. All green. I got two of these to use for removing hot items out of my baby bottle steam/sterilizer or out of boiling water if I'm boiling the baby stuff. I also steam heat baby food in a small dedicate pan made into a makeshift double boiler by adding a stainless steel bowl and water inside. So I use the tongs to lift the inner bowl out when the food is hot.
The color matches all the other green stuff I have perfectly. There is no mistake that green is for the baby and other colors are for everything else. The silicone tong ends grips are very wide compared to all other tongs I have. They are like curved spatulas and they grip the glass and plastic bottles and varioius baby utensil pieces perfectly. I've never dropped anything. And it's easy on the hands. After doing loads and loads of baby dishes, my hands don't get tired from operating the tongs. They are easy to lock and unlock and I like how the locking lever is silicone covered too because sometimes I have to operated it with my teeth or push it against my arm when my hands are full. And it's nice and soft and padded. I have no compliants about these and would buy more in other colors for other uses in the future.
I highly recommend these. I use them for baby stuff but I'm sure they are great for gripping/flipping food as well. if you want a more streamlined/tapered/smaller tong tip, the Mastrad Orka tongs are great, too, and come in a variety of lengths and great colors.
To lock them, you simply press the tongs together and pull up on the ring tab at the end. Simple! My cooking averages between cooking for two or cooking enough to avoid starvation. In other words, I'm an indifferent cook and am not into 18 pound turkeys or hams. These tongs work well for my type of cooking, and I do recommend them. Actually I have two pair. One is a spare for when the other is dirty and it's not time to run the dishwasher yet. Both are still working as advertised.
Progressive International appears to make a very good product.
But I found a better use for them. I have this greenhouse window over the sink with two shelves. The upper shelf has 8 orchids in 3 and 4 inch pots. In order to water those plants, I had to go into the garage and get the step stool, climb on the stool and bring down all of the plants to the counter, water and drain, climb back on the stool and put the plants back on the shelf. I have to admit the uppershelf was not watered as frequently as it should.
After seeing how well the gripper tongs worked at actually gripping things other than food, I tried them on the pots on the upper shelf. Grabbed a pot, watered, drained, and put each one back up on the shelf with just the gripper tongs. So easy breezy... !! I still have to tippy toe, so I'm thinking of getting the 16" version of these tongs eventually.
Update: I haven't had the problem some reviewers mention about the grippers not picking up small items, but today I did have a problem with large items: chunks of potato I'd boiled to make mashed potatoes. When lifting the chunks out of the pot to transfer them to the mixing bowl, they sometimes plopped back in the boiling water. There was a little bit of splashing as they hit the water, so I can see how this might present a burn potential (though I didn't get burned). I was surprised by how slippery the potato pieces were. Still, I'm sticking with my 5-star rating because I do love this product.
