23rd February 2022

Initially coming from rothenberger grips I thought these were going be overhyped and abit pointless with all the adjustments they have on them and at the start I was right but once I got used to them and got ye knack of using them right they have been an absolutely boss set of tools in my arsenal I always have the smallest ones in my pocket ready to go at a moment’s notice

Fantastic pair of grips once again from knipex, the quality you would expect from them of you have any of their other products. Very hand in tight spaces up under kitchen sinks etc. Usually use the 250 mm ones but when you need these nothing else comes clos.

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

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.

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.

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.

Quality build. The 125mm version are great to get into small places within boilers. Also have the 18mm and my next purchase will be the 300mm

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
