Blue Lobster Tools sent us a link to their Kickstarter project where they’re looking for financial backers to help bring their new Perfect Grip Pliers to production. The new pliers are described as the most advanced auto-locking auto-adjust one hand use tool ever.
There’s a video over at Kickstarter and then another longer one on YouTube, focusing heavily on the faults of other styles of pliers. There is definitely potential in a new kind of auto-adjust auto-locking pliers, but we’ll have to wait to see if the Perfect Grip is as revolutionary as claimed.
Our current auto-adjust pliers of choice are the CH Hanson Automatic locking pliers, although we tend to use regular pliers and traditional style locking pliers more often.
Retail price is expected to be $30. There are various rewards on Kickstarter, with a minimum $25 pledge needed to receive 1 pair of pliers.
