Review for KNIPEX Cobra® Hightech Water Pump Pliers by RP Electrical Contracting
7th June 2021

More comfortable a less accident prone than the Bahco equivalent, with greater traction if you can't get a perfect position than the Knipex Plier Wrench. Definitely worth having a couple of sizes in an everyday carry bag

Really good set of grips regardless of what size you get. I have a really small set that stays in my pocket all the time and two big sets for glanding off cables. Perfect for the job.

I used to have Ridgid water pump pliers when I started out 20 years ago. I’d rate the Ridgid 5/5. These edge it slightly due to the ergonomic design. They feel more natural in your hand. I carry the very small set in my pocket (alongside my small bahco shifter) and along with a small electrical screwdriver can do a decent amount of jobs or investigation work.

Not had them for long. But I wonder how I managed without them. So solid, great positive feel on materials, smooth action. There is a reason so many people rave about them.
Really well priced for the quality as well. A no brainier. These are the grips you are looking for.

Have used knipex grips/ pump pliers for a few years now. I stumbled across them at a wholesalers that I use. I bought a very large pair and they were cheap at the time, have noticed the price has creeped up over the years but being very honest no other maker on the market compare to knipex. They are brilliant take a pounding most days and the grip has not wore out on them yet. They fit comfortably in your hand and in my opinion the best part of these grips they lock in place via a spring and do not slip and crush your nail like many other cheaper brands. Very safe comfortable and faithful tool that should be found in every trade persons tool bag/ box. Also I use amazon to buy most of my tools as they are cheaper then shops and delivery time is usually second to none.

Knipex cobras are a great bit of kit to have in your bag. I bought these when I borrowed a set from someone the grip on them is unbelievable and Im looking to add the smaller set to my toolkit soon. Knipex is brand with a good rep and they’ve certainly lived upto the rep with these.

Build quality, as you’d expect from Knipex, is top draw. I have 2 and use them most days, and they are showing no real signs of wear. The mechanism that holds the jaws at the size required is very effective.

I picked up a 250mm pair of these from the Elex show last year. I have used them mostly for steel conduit work and I am impressed with the grip of these. The button adjustment is quick and easy, and as with all Knipex products, they are solid in the hand and feel like good quality. Definitely can recommend these for a sparkys tool bag!

These are by far the best pipe grips on the market.
The small increments of the spring button is great to find just the right jaw spacing.
There are none of the slipping issues you get with other designs of pipe grips.
They would last a lifetime if I could find a way of stopping them getting stollen every few years.

Nice grips to use, they have lasted me 6 years so far and still going strong. I’ve used um as grips and a hammer a pry bar and they have not broken and the bits of damage are my fault for using them wrong.

Love them. Little experience for what they are but I'd never go back to a cheaper pair. Comfy in your hands and they seem to be well made

Excellent grips, must have for the tool bag. Quick and precise adjustment using the button. Holds onto small galv pipe, hex fittings and locking rings with ease. Managed to lose my last pair and was in no doubt to get another pair.

Great item wouldn't use a different brand in hand tools of this type and also reasonably priced. Don't wear down like other grips and are a pleasure to use.

Locks on to pipe when used, to pipe will break before these pliers. Push button allows means they can be adjusted a lot easier than channel locks.

Without doubt the best pliers you can get, I own a variety of sizes and use them all on a daily basis. Well built, solid feel and will never let you down.

Great pair of grips but the teeth do wear down under normal use. Certainly one of the tools we like to see in the toolbox.

Best set of grips on the market in my opinion, I have used the bahco and the rothenberger grips in the past and these are much better. I like the shape of them and the handles which make tightening fittings a breeze. A joy to use.

Far and away the best grips i hae ever used.
The 5inch set is probably my most used set. Ideal when working on gas fires or inside boilers.
I also have the 6 inch and 10 inch sets.
The locking mechanism prevents them lipping and nipping your fingers. The build quality feels top class and they are a beautiful piece of german engineering.
I would never go back to using any other brand
