Knock-offs of the original Knipex pliers? Somehow, I don't think the quality is the same. Been this price since 6/01/20. Peace

Neat. I love my cobras. I only have a 10" pair and would love to get more of various lengths, but this seems kind of expensive for a knock off.

I have the inexpensive Husky version of these pliers. The concept is excellent and I would never go back to a "standard" version again.

The Irwin pliers are good enough for 99% of the guys out there. Pliers are consumables, like perishable tools. Unless you are making money out of it, don't spend big bucks on them

Yeah i would stay with originals like Knipex.
Stupid me bought a gimmicky tool like the this Craftsman Extreme Grip reaker wrench [amazon.com] and it broke on the first use. Now I don't even know how to put the spring back into the pivot

How do you figure?

I mean, how fast are you using up pliers?

Pliers aren't consumable, but most DIYers don't need $50 Knipex pliers. It all depends on your needs and frequency of usage.

Decent DIY brand, but with tools you usually get what you pay for.

I have an old set of Channellock Tongue and Groove pliers that my dad left me. The regular kind that you spread and adjust the plier, has lasted decades and still working well.

Do I need these? No.. Do I want these/want to try them out? nod

So you just push the button to release and slide the handle to adjust the jaw size, then push back to lock it in? or is it spring loaded where you push and hold down to adjust, then release to lock in? If you already had a set of old/normal pliers would you still get these?

I think it's worth it if you have the $. I have old channelocks and Wilde channel pliers. I also have knipex and wiha pliers. I find myself reaching for the knipex more. They seem to have better torque and bite on items like nuts where I probably should be taking the time to get a box wrench or socket set but I'm too lazy...

Thank you so much for the insight and reply! Money isn't an issue, I DIY on most of the stuff around the house and my cars, so I'm saving money there already. My main focus is if it makes my life easier, is worth having, saves me time, or works better than what I have I'm all for it. If it's unnecessary then it's just another thing in the tool box/tool chest that I don't reach for. Nuts and bolts personally I'd definitely use a socket set or combo wrench for instead of an adjustable wrench or pliers but that's just me.. I rather not damage or round off something.

So from multiple replies, seems like the Knipex is the way to go? I'm not a professional plumber or contractor, but I do have a home and several rental properties that I do a lot of the maintenance & repair on, so I use my tools quite often. Probably wouldn't use these on anything automotive, but I wrench a lot on my cars too, so I understand the value on having the right tools that make my life easier or save time over cost. Thanks again!

my garage is pretty far from the main house (we have a large 'sun'/play room' that separates the two. Therefore I keep almost all tools in the garage, but keep a small tool belt that has multiple basic tools including the knipex cobras. I don't worry too much on the rounding on non-high torque applications (today was a bolt/nut for keeping the two throttle cables on the lawnmower) I keep 4 double open end wrenches in metric so i had to hold the bolt with the knipex while turning the nut with the proto wrench. unless you slip on the bolt, you won't round off. it takes a while getting used to guessing where you have to push/let go to get the right opening size. Typical channel/slips are much easier to guess but my channels don't seem to 'grip' nearly as tight as the knipex IMO. You'll just have to try it and see for yourself. it's $ well spent IMO.

I also have a detached garage that is a way from the main house. I have a tool box of commonly used around the house tools in the house. For the rental properties, it all depends on what I'm fixing. I have a tool shed separate of the other 2 dwellings to house power tools, specific plumbing, electrical, etc stuff. Then I have multi tier tool chests in the garage with dedicated mechanics tools for the cars/garage since I do 99% of the maintenance and repair on all our vehicles. Only if I already failed, or I know it's too heavy, time consuming or involved (engine swap, transmission removal, etc) for 1 person to easily do it will I take it somewhere to be done. Otherwise I do everything myself.

Yeah for fasteners as long as you get a good grip on the flat surfaces and it doesn't slip or move when you're turning the other end you're good but sometimes I just rather use an open or closed end wrench specifically sized wrench or socket. It really depends on what you're doing, how much space and grip you have. Holding a nut stationary while screwing on a bolt, I'll use either pliers, vise grips, combo wrench or socket. If its 2 ends that need to be tightened without I'll slip ratchets on both ends and spin them both. I'm sure we can agree the right tool makes all the difference. Thanks!
