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.

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!
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 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 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.
there are the best pliers I have ever used they don't slip off what your using them for and the gripper handles keep your hands from slipping too:) no more knuckle breakers with these
another great quality product from Craftsman; nice assortment of various pliers that should be used for many projects; bought as a gift, and recipient was thrilled to have Craftsman - there is no comparison with any other brand!
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 was looking for a gift for my son-in-law. I found in in this locking pliers set. They are heavy duty pliers and I bought them for a very good price. I am very satisfired with this purchase.

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.
