Excellent Handles and Locking Mechanism

I received the Craftsman Locking Pliers Set as part of my Christmas gift. As soon as I opened them, I wondered why I had never purchased these years ago. The soft grip handles are excellent as they cushion my hands as I apply force to lock them closed on a bolt or nut. This is important as my hands are ate up with nerve damage and ever little bit helps. The cushioning also helps as I apply force to turn the pliers which do not slip a bit once locked in place. Thank you Craftsman for an awesome product.

You get what you pay for.
Not a great pliers set. There is no release latch for the vicegrip so you actually have to pull the pliers apart which is a huge pain in the neck. I just started out and needed a bunch of affordable tools all at once. These were pretty cheap. I wouldn't buy them again, though. They might be fine fixing a car in your garage but I wouldn't recommend them for professional usage.

Great Locking Pliers

I was shopping for a set of locking pliers and as always I checked the Craftsman site and then my local Sears Hometown store. At first I was skeptical about the lack of the familar disengage lever, but now I wouldn't own any other kind!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best Locking Pliers

Much sturdier than Vise Grips and the easy open feature really works without a trigger. Update: I bought my set with the old grip handles. I don't care for the ones pictured. For that, I downgraded to four stars.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is a good set of vice grips. Not sure why the needle nose don't have padding on one side.

My New go-to Pliers

I had some locking pliers that had horrible 'teeth' left. I would try and grip the head of a bolt and they would slip right off. I bought these on sale so that alone was great. These gripped right. The easy-release is also something I like since I don't had to fiddle with extra stuff. My only complaint? Made in China! So far, so good. And if anything happens, THEY'RE CRAFTSMAN!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I bought these tools for work for taking off bolts with different bolt heads. We have these bolts which our company will not buy the right tool to remove them; however, these tools work great.

These pliers are very sturdily made. They have a nice coating on the handle that helps get a firmer, more assured grip when trying to loosen or tighten.

LOCKING PLIERS SET

I bought this item for my husband. He absolutely will only use Craftsman tools. They hold up forever. If, by chance they do break Sears will replace them. This is an excellent policy. My husband and I like to do most of our own repairs so we use Sears tools often. These pliers were an excellent buy and he has already used them.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent alternative to the visegrip brand

I hesitated to use another brand name in my headline, but it's important to me to express my satisfaction . These are every bit as sturdy as that brand, with comfort grip and easy release ( no tongue lever) . This style of release will save me from many blackened fingernails and that alone makes this set more valuable to me. Add in the build quality and the comfort grips and the craftsman quality / warranty at a lower price then said brand above........and it's a no brainer! I highly recommend these as well as any craftsman hand tool.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
