Locking pliers, Mole Grips, Vise-Grips: the professional in versatility in your toolbox.

Their clamping mechanism is what makes them unique: the locking pliers. Despite individual differences, locking pliers securely hold what needs to be clamped. They can be used with an intricate lever mechanism as a "third hand" to secure and stabilize workpieces in the desired position. The pliers as just as easy to release as they are to lock: simply pull on the release lever and the pliers will release the workpiece.
