Knipex Pliers Wrench

Before I share my impressions of the Knipex Pliers Wrench, let’s talk about adjustable wrenches.

I think wrenches are very useful, as long as you have the skills to use them. Whether you are using an inexpensive or an expensive wrench, you need to know how to wiggle the wrench in place, while you’re turning the spiral wheel. These tasks seem very simple, but they’re not. How many times have you seen rounded nuts? In addition to these prerequisites, you’ll need to keep your thumb on the spiral wheel, at least for the inexpensive wrenches, perhaps evening tightening the spiral wheel, as you tighten the nut. You usually don’t have this problem with the better made wrenches, but you need to wiggle the wrench, as you’re loosening the spiral wheel, to get it off of the nut. See where I’m going with this? You need advanced skills or some serious training to use an adjustable wrench.

Unlike adjustable wrenches, the Knipex Pliers Wrench does not require any specialized training to operate. You simply adjust the jaws to the approximate size, then squeeze. That’s it! The Knipex Pliers Wrench is also fundamentally different in that it can apply dynamic pressure to the nut or the object being grasped, as opposed to adjustable wrenches that are static and neutral on the better wrenches, and even negative on the cheaper ones.

If you’re in the market for an adjustable wrench or not, get yourself a pair of the Knipex Pliers Wrench. They’re easier, faster, safer, and super comfy!
