Grip-on’s 727-08 ErgoGrip locking pliers sure are a strange a sight with its right-angle pistol-grip design. With a 70-degree angled design, these pliers are intended to reduce hand strain and fatigue, and are ideal for use in confined spaces. They are also claimed to exert for up to 50% more force in twisting applications.
Proto rebrands the Grip-On pliers as model J300XL.
As previously mentioned, we are already big fans of Grip-on pliers, so of course once the opportunity presented itself, we promptly ordered a pair of these ErgoGrips. So far, we’re pleased with their ergonomics and build quality.
These pliers are a little on the pricey side, at around $35-50 each.
