Great grips, use on flat faced nuts on valves and controls, well built tools which I find virtually indestructible, have about five sets in differing sizes, all over two years old, still going strong with a lot of use

30th September 2020

I have the 180mm & 250mm pairs of these, they are expensive, I got them for £36 & £47 respectively. I use mine mainly for glanding cables as the smooth jaws don’t wreck the gland nuts, also the smaller set has been useful for working 6 - 10mm nuts & bolts so has replaced a small number of standard spanners. I do really like using them, they are built extremely well, and they open far wider than a similar sized adjustable spanner. If you can stomach the price, go for it, you’ll not regret it!

Awesome grips, The smooth plate is great for Chrome nuts to avoid damage. The larger set 24" are a little difficult to use as they open so wide.

These are a great set of grips. Be cautious though when buying in mine, they are quite expensive (but well worth it) and appear larger than they actually are so when I ordered mine thinking they would be normal human sized, they were in fact teeny tiny ones, but in fact I’ve come to love them and uses them all the time!

Really good set of grips, find them easy to use and it’s a nice fit in your hand. Best to use on chrome I find as it doesn’t scratch like the usual teethed grips

I have found these to be great pliers the way they open and close is completely different to usual pliers. They close smooth and give excellent grip on smooth nuts like and adjustable spinner but easier to use and adjust.

This pair of grips Is one of my most favourite tools in my tool bag, I will use it pretty much for everything, The build quality is never let me down it’s long-lasting I’ve had this item for around four years. It has a hefty pricetag and when you’ve left it in a customers house you come to realise that you may never see your tall again and then the customer will call you and tell you that they have received the taller now give you back it is an amazing feeling to know there is some honest and genuine people there to reunite yourself with that tool

Use 2 of these mainly for swa glands, they don't damage the glands at all due to the flat jaws. Also thin width of jaws.Push button is better than a channel lock system and allows for greater control of jaw opening size. High quality like all knipex tools will last lifetime.

I think these are a genuine replacement for an adjustable spanner but I use them as an extra tool to supplement the other grips and spanners I have. Expensive but worth it, just.

Question:

Are these grip the best on the market? Iv seen some good reviews over the Internet, iv had a of pair rothembergers that have lasted me nearly 10 years, do these make a big difference in day-to-day work and does the jaw adjustment slip or does it feel very sturdy?

Answered on 4th April 2017 by DJPHS

Answer:

Yep, I think that's the largest, you'd get them on gas meter unions fine but not pump nuts. I bought the stubby Nerrad wide jaw adjustable that fits on pump nuts, you can hit it with a hammer and it won't break so great for pump nuts.

Answered on 5th April 2017 by Modern Home Plumbing

Answer:

The xl are the largest ones at 400mm go for about £110 I think.

Hi. I'm Terry Burgin of Terry Burgin Plumbing and Heating Engineer. I'm a member of Expert Trades. Today I'm doing a tool talk review.
Today, the tool I'm gonna review is the Knipex flat jawed grips, I would call them. I'm not sure what their official name is. Basically they're great for if you're doing anything with radiate valves or any Conex nuts that you don't wanna mark. They work exactly the same as grips. You can just adjust the size and then just clamp it onto the fitting. Then you've got a nice flat surface like a pair of spanners, but it's adjustable, so you can move easily to whatever size you wanna go to.
I've had these grips now for about six months. They're really hard wear and they get thrown around here, there, and everywhere. But they're still looking pretty much new. They got a bit of paste on them, but they're really good.
Value for money, they are pretty expensive. But, I would, again, pay that every day before I bought a cheaper alternative. I'm Terry Burgin, and I recommend the Knipex Flat Jawed Grips.
