Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by TomTheToolTester Channel lock pliers with a soft touch
I used the small channel locks to help to avoid crushing a small tubing and to hold a compression fitting I was installing. The soft plastic to put over the jaws were a good ide and was better suited to use on chrome pieces to keep from scratching them. Tool was fine and I have added it to my tools.

These soft jaw pliers were just the right ticket to help me loosen and then later tighten up the kitchen sink hose that I needed to replace. I did not want to overclamp the hose attachments which would bend them out of shape and these worked great to avoid that.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nequam Jaw covers are pretty wimpy.
When removing a faucet aerator that had suffered much hard-water buildup, the mineral deposits actually GOUGED the covers! They'll hold up for now, but I'm underwhelmed.

Junk. I bought this to change out a sprayer on a $900.00 kitchen faucet, I didn't want ANY marks on my clients faucet. First they don't grab round pieces, second, they almost tore through on the first use and I was no applying much pressure. I was using an adjustable wrench for the hose connection and this one to hold the round handle still, no luck. I wrapped about 8-9 turns of painters tape around the handle and was able to get a good enough grip with my hand that it didn't slip. Bottom line is your hand works better than this junk.

This item helped me with a lot of installations around the house. It was very easy to handle and to maneuver around the areas hard to reach.

The jaws grooves will not hold. Every time I would add pressure, the jaw would slip out of the groove and become loose, even after I tighten the nut.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NickelCityDude Does exactly what I purchased it for
I purchased this tool to hold .38 special cases so I could drill out the primer hole to make blanks and not damage the finish on the outside of the cases. It has worked out great.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tennesseemom2016 Broke during first use!
The guards broke during the first use and the pliers slip. Waste of money!
