Need great grip and a lot of torque, but traditional pliers are not producing enough? When that happens, turn to locking pliers. With a variety of locking mechanisms, locking pliers are able to provide incredibly powerful grip that will allow you to easily remove stuck metal objects or loosen stubborn bolts with much less strain. Depending on the amount of grip available, some locking pliers are also known as vise grips. Browse our full selection of locking pliers to find a variety of options including long nose, curved jaw, and straight jaw pliers.
Many locking pliers function similarly to wrenches, meaning they will be useful in similar applications. Their greatest feature is the ability to customize the amount of grip you need for objects of varying sizes and for instances where you want to apply more torque without losing your grip on a nut or bolt. Our long nose locking pliers are perfect for precision work in tight spaces, allowing you access where traditional pliers may not reach. For jobs where space is not an issue, our curved jaw locking pliers allow you to put a great deal of pressure on four points of any bolt or nut. Their guarded release trigger means you will not accidentally unlock the grip while in the middle of a job. Many of our pliers include wire cutters, allowing you to be more versatile than ever.
