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.

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.

Everything you'd expect from a IRWIN VISE-GRIP locking pliers - but smaller. Sometimes small tools feel noticeably lower in quality than their normal sized counterparts. Not so with these. These feel just as solid and reliable as their larger brethren. Obviously they won't hold up to the same level of abuse, but they lock nicely, are well made from the same steel, the controls operate the same way, etc... I wanted a small pair for my laptop bag and these are perfect.

If you need a very specific size, just note that these are a bit over the 4" they're described to be.

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.

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!

I bought one of these thirty years ago at a hardware store's going out of business sale. I had my doubts, because larger vice-grips always seemed clumsy, and often left scars on what they gripped. I soon found that these were easy to use, and a lot more capable than ordinary household pliers.

This pair is a replacement. I think the original pair stowed itself away in my son's van. Good tools evaporate that way. There are several tools that are incredibly useful, that most handymen don't know about. A pair of oversize Channel-locks - not the common 10-12" size but the 18-20" size - are one of the others; they are highly useful for plumbing. But these are my best secret in my toolbox, useful on all the small fix-it projects that are always popping up. Buy two of these - one for yourself, and one for your son. You don't want him to get started on a life of minor crime.

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.
