GearWrench Releases New Push Button Tongue & Groove Pliers

Easy-to-Adjust Pliers Offer Automotive Technicians Speed and Convenience

SPARKS, MD--(Marketwired - Jun 8, 2015) - GearWrench®, a premier hand tool brand known for tools that deliver speed, strength and access to automotive technicians, today unveiled its new Push Button Tongue & Groove Pliers.

The Push Button Tongue & Groove pliers have an easily adjustable multiple-position jaw that provides increased flexibility and versatility. Technicians can place the upper jaw on the workpiece, push the button and easily slide the bottom jaw into position to get the best fit and handle span for maximum holding and turning power. The V-shaped jaw paired with the induction-hardened, angled teeth grip flat, curved, square or hexagonal objects with ease. The longer jaw and thinner head of the new Push Button Tongue & Groove pliers provide increased access in tight spaces.

"Whether gripping objects or turning nuts and bolts, technicians need pliers that provide both the best fit on the workpiece and a handle span that fits their grip, allowing them to hold objects securely," said Jim Stewart, product manager for GearWrench. "With these pliers placed in the palm of your hand, you can tackle a multitude of jobs and work more efficiently."

The new pliers are available in three open stock SKUs and a 3 piece set:

  • SKU 82158: 8" Push Button Tongue & Groove Pliers (23 positions, 1.8" max capacity)
  • SKU 82160: 10" Push Button Tongue & Groove Pliers (27 positions, 2.1" max capacity)
  • SKU 82162: 12" Push Button Tongue & Groove Pliers (21 positions, 2.5" max capacity)
  • SKU 82118: 3 Pc. Push Button Tongue & Groove Plier Set (includes 8", 10" and 12" pliers)

These pliers are made to handle technicians' rigorous demands. While strong and durable, the pliers -- made of forged chrome-vanadium steel -- are lightweight and easy to work with. The professional dipped handle grips quickly wipe clean and are resistant to gasoline, brake fluid and anti-freeze, ensuring a place in the toolbox for years to come.
