This Irwin Vise-Grip 2-piece GrooveLock pliers set is on sale again at Sears for $12.50. The pliers are decently built for the price, and are quite comfortable to use. While not up to Knipex quality, they’re nevertheless well designed and fairly durable.
The set includes 8″ and 10″ pliers, which adjust quickly via a push-button mechanism.
In-store pickup is free, but if you don’t want to bother with the hassle, the set is only a few dollars more at Amazon. We’re not sure when the deal ends, but a similar sale is bound to return around Black Friday or sometime during the following holiday shopping season.
