These slip joint pliers are made to solve a difficult problem of removing problem screws or rounded nuts and bolts. The jaws are hardened so they can bite into the target screw or nut (like a vampire, thus VamPLIERS™).
A normal plier head has horizontal serrations with minimum contact with the target and they slip during movement. The VamPLIERS™ Slip-Joint have a patented curved jaw to allow maximum surface contact with the target during rotation as the target is being extracted. The VT-001 does a great job of this for smaller target screws and bolts; but the slip-joint provides more flexibility to extract larger size screws, nuts, or bolts. Some of the best steel in the world is made in Japan. All pliers branded as VamPLIERS™ are made from steel produced in Kobe, Japan.
How Does VamPLIERS™ Technology Work?
Both vertical and horizontal serrations grasp a screw head without slipping.
Ordinary PliersOrdinary pliers jaws are lined with horizontal serrations. When you grasp and turn a screw head with ordinary pliers, the jaws slip and the screw remains stuck.
Vertical SerrationVAMPLIERs™ specially-designed jaws generate gripping power.
Maximizes the Contact VAMPLIERS™ perfectly-fit serration maximizes the contact with no slip.
* Usage Disclaimer: VamPLIERS™ will not take out screws, nuts, or bolts which are specially-hardened, heat-treated, or glued.
