      If There is a Better Set - I Couldn't Find Them!

      After years of use and abuse, my old vice-grips finally gave out.  This gave me an excellent opportunity to research what was available and see, first hand, what improvements have been made in this tool.

      It should come as no surprize that Craftsman's Professional offering was the best I could find in this catagory.  You'll enjoyed the padded handle and one-hand operation.  The adjustment screw on this pliers is smoother gliding that any other product I found on the market.

      I highly recommend these pliers.  There is a complete line of size and jaw types to fill any need.  Try a set out today and you'll want to own them all!

      MADE IN CHINA = CRAP
      Just purchased,on 5/11/2012 and the small locking pliers are not square when clamped / locked together. the lower jaw is not ground square or straight! I will be returning the smaller one for one that's is made better than what is being passed of quality that Craftsman's name is suppose to represent! Made in China = Crap.

      Good quality and comfortable to use

      The pliers were purchased as a gift for my husband. He likes them, and he commented that they are durable and comfortable. Another good Craftsman product!

      Craftsman - Don't want to be without it

      I had Craftsman tool sets since 1970 including locking pliers, dependable and durable. I needed to replace a locking pliers set - non-Craftsman - which I don't use often at another location, so I replaced it with my anno 1971 Craftsman and purchased a new replacement set at Sears. I like these for the grip is very comfy and they don't have the spring-loaded release lever which sometimes would pinch my finger. Just spread the grip handles and voila, it's open. Nice and simple.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      1st impression they seem pretty good

      I picked them up recently, but haven't had a chance to really use them on my car. They seem to be of quality and pretty good for the low price. I was disappointed to see they were made in China though. Time will tell if they hold up.

      Quality isn't so bad

      I actually find that these are a pretty strong design. I wish they had a button to flip them open, but they don't shoot open like other designs. Would buy again.

      Cant beat these locking pliers!

      Works great and you cant beat the warranty. If they break just take them into your nearest Sears for a free replacement. Why everyone does not buy Craftsman hand tools is beyond me.

      Nice cheaper alternative to Vise Grips!

      After buying my first set of craftsmans locking pliers I was hooked on them. They are a bit cheaper than vise grips and work just as well........... This is just one of the many sets and individual pairs of these locking pliers that I have in my "collection"

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftsman 2 pc. Locking Plier Set

      I purchased this Craftsman locking plier set to assist with taking off and holding stubborn bolts, nuts and a good firm grip. I have used these pliers a couple of times already and they work very well. I have a pair of ViseGrips but sometimes they would release unexpectedly when doing a job. The Craftsman seems to lock in place and not release, just as they should. These come in very handy when soldering copper pipe as well so you do not feel the heat. The set includes two plier sizes 10WR and 7R which is nice! I am sure that I will get plenty of use out of this set. It was great to see MADE IN THE USA!

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Craftsman locking pliers are great value

      Great pliers and Craftsman like quality and lifetime warranty, the only negative is they are made in China, but the lifetime guarantee will cover any problems.

      Since they are excellent quality, I will use them for years.

      I bought these for my husband, for his birthday, he has been very pleased with this set. He was most surprised by the quality and the cushion grip handles. He has not had a opportunity to use them yet, but knows that this set will be very useful and with all Craftsman products are sure to be of quality workmanship.

      false advertising

      The description is not accurate, these are made in China and are not the Professional version.

      Buyer beware, the part number is the same but the items in stock were made in China.
