Just think of it for a minute. You're trying to hold onto something (or hold two things together) in the midst of a complicated work step and need to let go for a minute - but don't have three hands. The virtue of a precision locking pliers is obvious. The two Clamps (one straight and the other with a curved tip) are overall 5" long with a gripping length is 1-1/2". Available as a pair. PVC coated stainless steel.
And the Slide Locking Tweezer is simply a gem of a tool. Only 5-1/2" long, this small Tweezer opens to 1/2" and closes with a sliding fitting that works with thumb pressure. The closure stay where you leave it so control is precise and firm. We really like it and so will you. Stainless steel. Get all three at the same time for an even better value.
