A quick-adjust, push button design allows the user to make a fast, one-handed adjustment when going from one size of pipe to another.

On the other hand, the 10” and 12” Tongue and Groove Pliers are designed to solve common frustrations for the plumber. They feature the plumber’s preferred tongue and groove adjustment mechanism. Induction hardened jaws also provide long lasting durability and consistent performance.
