Klein Tools launched a new Pliers Wrench, model D53010SEN, and for the time being at least it’s only available at Home Depot.
It features a high leverage design, similar to the Knipex Pliers Wrench and others, but with a twist – the Klein Tools Pliers Wrench features a reversible jaw!
Shown above, the Pliers Wrench is grabbing onto a conduit or pipe fitting with its toothed V-jaw.
Flip the jaw around, you have smooth parallel jaws similar to other tools on the market, for gripping across hex flats.
Klein went with a lever-type adjustment mechanism, rather than a pushbutton.
Home Depot has a video on their website showing how easy it is to flip the jaw around to switch between parallel and V-groove sides.
This seems like it could be useful. The reversible jaw is interesting, but the long lever button-style adjustment mechanism doesn’t seem very intuitive.
Thank you to everyone who wrote in about this over the past few weeks!
