C.H. Hanson’s new Automatic locking pliers have been redesigned to be 7X faster, 2X stronger and 100% easier to use than traditional locking pliers. These pliers are based on LockJaw’s design, which, according to their website, is now a part of the CH Hanson family of products.
The aptly named Automatic lineup of pliers can lock onto any size object without needing to be manually adjusted. There are no knobs or thumbscrews needed to adjust the pliers’ jaw size, only an initial clamping pressure setting which ranges from “slight” to “extreme”. Simply “set and forget” and the pliers will self-adjust to grip objects of different sizes with equal gripping pressure.
Additional features include a redesigned handle that is thinner and more ergonomic, a more controllable release lever, and new construction that is aimed to eliminate pinch points.
Not only did C.H. Hanson upgrade the LockJaw design, it looks like they expanded the product selection by quite a bit as well. Sounds good to us!
