I have used this before. May work on larger nut size (close to 1"). Struggles mightily on smaller nuts (1/2" or smaller) as it keeps slipping. The jaws just cannot grip smaller nuts.

Not worth it imho. I wouldn't waste the space in my tool box. Just use the correct tool for the job.

This tool is my favorite for swapping 20lb propane cans. Plastic handle is actually a bonus in cold weather.

While not exactly the same tool, a friend of mine gave me her set of two pairs of automatic vice grips and one adjustable wrench (not the same model). ALL of them suck. They rarely lock properly, they don't grip very tightly, and they randomly pop open while you're working.

If this wrench is as unreliable as its siblings (All are Kobalt brand), I honestly suggest you pass. If you don't heed my advice and buy them anyway, PLEASE don't use them in a situation where your safety depends on their reliability.
