RS Pro Locking Pliers

From RS PRO, these high-quality locking pliers are made from high-grade heat-treated alloy steel for maximum toughness and durability.

The hardened teeth are designed to grip from any angle so you can work with confidence, and the locking action means you can maintain a grip on the workpiece without having to employ constant hand pressure.

These mole grips are incredibly robust and reliable and suitable for specialist applications beyond the capabilities of standard pliers and wrenches.

They even feature an integrated wire cutter suitable for cutting soft wire and stripping wire insulation.

Features and Benefits

• Locking pliers maintain constant gripping force
• The guarded release lever is an important safety feature that helps keep work safe and secure
