Great product, I always make sure I have two of them on me. Much easier to adjust than a lot of other styles, so less time spend fiddling more time working.

If your in Plumbing, Gas or Heating trade. This should be the tool that starts you off. i got my first pair of knipec grips when i was an apprentice 10 years ago. Although well used. i still use them to this day. and they get used nearly everyday. you may look at the price and think they are a little pricey. But 10 years, still going strong. They have more than paid for themselves. This is my number one tool in my toolkit.

Awesome to use! Auto adjustment to any size they’re faced with. Good for holding onto oddball shape/size things as you don’t need to keep adjusting to get the right feel. They don’t slip at all and will hold your weight if you stand on them!

Great to use and can be stored away in tool boxes and bags, great to keep in the van. Would even be handy for use at home when needed.

Hi, I'm Terry Burgin of Terry Burgin Plumbing and Heating Engineer. I'm a member of Expert Trades, and today I'm doing a Tool Talk review.
Today, the tool I'm going to review is the Knipex Smartgrip. They're an auto-adjustable pipe wrench, or pipe grips is what we call them. Basically what they'll do is if you're trying to clamp onto a fitting, say like a 15 mil, not that I would use these on these, but it will just auto adjust to the correct size so you don't have to mess about with normal grips while you're trying to get it into the perfect slot, the right slot for whatever fitting you're using.
This will just perfectly auto adjust to every size so you could even do something like a 22 mil and it will just auto adjust to the correct size right away and lock in. They've got a nice lock closed function as well to hold them shut in your tool bag. Really like these grips. I use them every single day on every job. They're the first tool out of my tool bag if I'm doing anything involving pipe.
I bought these at Installer Live this year, 2017. They were off the Knipex stand. Absolutely fantastic. I've probably had them now about six months. If I would need to buy another pair of grips, it'd probably only be these that I'd buy. Value for money, they are a bit more expensive than most other grips, I think just because they're Knipex branded, but I'd say they're the best. I don't mind paying a bit more for something I know is going to last.
I'm Terry Burgin, and I recommend the Knipex Smartgrip.

I bought the hilariously small pocket level, to use when fitting electrical backboxes and accessories. It’s been great for these uses, the magnet is very strong and it’s so small it’ll fit inside a standard UK single backbox. I paid about 6 quid for mine, and I flipping love it, even if it does get a few laughs on site.

Had a set of these for a couple of years and they’ve been great! Being stubby you don’t usually have much trouble drilling a nice straight hole when working up between joists or under floorboards. When they’re brand now the absolutely eat through timber. Quite expensive but reasonably hard wearing, they do say they are nail proof but I always try to avoid that as much as possible to prolong their life

These little hole saws are brilliant for drilling neat holes out in thin metals and plastic. I have been a long time user of starrett holesaws but when it comes to drilling out holes in trunking, boxes and panels I’ll 100% use on of these instead! Last a decent amount of time too so long as you look after them.

My favourite torque screwdriver set on the market right now, Wiha have done a great job in making the handle still feel ergonomic in the hand despite it being larger due to the fact it’s got the torque guts in it. Setting it is simple with the included tool, and I think it’s got the best torque range out of its competitors at 0.8nm to 5.0nm. Keep an eye out for deals on Amazon for this, it drops down to around £110 sometimes
