Tongue-and-Groove Pliers

Tongue-and-Groove Pliers

Similar to slip-joint pliers, tongue-and-groove pliers have a grooved pivot joint that allows the lower jaw to be adjusted to multiple positions to accommodate objects in a range of shapes and sizes. With a long handle that provides good leverage, tongue-and-groove pliers, also known as water pump pliers, are commonly used in plumbing and automotive industries for tightening and clamping large nuts and bolts and turning or holding pipes and irregularly shaped objects.

General Purpose

These tongue-and-groove pliers are a good choice for a variety of everyday applications.

Non-Sparking

When working in environments that contain flammable solvents, liquids, vapors, dusts, or residues, these nonsparking tongue-and-groove pliers are made from nonferrous materials to help minimize the risk of the tool generating a spark while in use. OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) has developed best practice guidelines for certain chemicals and processes that include choosing nonsparking tools.

Self-Gripping

Position these tools on the workpiece and push a button at the jaw pivot to lock the tool in place. Allowing for fine adjustments for a range of workpieces, these self-gripping pliers have teeth that angle in the opposite direction of the turning force to prevent the tool from slipping off the workpiece. The jaws can be adjusted while the tool is on the workpiece.
