Knipex pipe wrenches are high-quality, durable tools made out of chrome vanadium electric forged steel, multi-stage oil-hardened and available in different models to meet the needs of both professional and private users. Moreover, they’re equipped with a captive adjusting nut and with durable induction-hardened teeth. These tools come with different types and angulations of jaws: for example, the red powder coated 83 10 015 is equipped with 90° angled jaws, the 83 20 015 with 45° angled jaws and, finally, the 83 60 010 has an S-Type jaw with fast adjustment. This last tool is particularly interesting as its fast adjustment function guarantees a time saving, precise adjustment of the gripping width directly on the workpiece and less effort for the user.
Pliers Wrenches are really versatile tools that include pliers and a wrench in a single tool, also available in different materials, dimensions and with different types of jaws. They’re excellent for gripping, holding, pressing and bending workpieces thanks to their smooth jaws grip, which allow damage-free installations and at the same time a high degree of pressure, for example when tightening locknuts.
This kind of pliers, thanks to their robustness, is essential when working with siphons, oil filters, plastic pipes and connectors up to 80 mm diameter because it allows the user to tighten and loosen siphon screw connections, plastic pipe fittings and round union nuts in an easy way.
