Hey Casey, The 12in. Self-Adjusting Pipe Wrench has a 5/8 - 1-1/2 In. capacity and will grip round pipe or hex nuts etc. It works similar to a normal pipe wrench but it is ratcheting so if a normal pipe wrench with that capacity would work this will work. Thanks!

Do you have a self-adjusting pipe wrench that opens to 2" diameter?

I wasn't sure what to expect but these seem to grip really well, and work as intended. The only thing I haven't really been able to get these to bite into is stainless steel pipe. My only gripe is that it only goes up to 1-1/4" but it's technically a 10" pipe wrench so it probably wouldn't work well on fittings much larger than the jaw can handle. Over all not bad at all, I'd definitely recommend.

(What's this)
Used this wrench to replace an anode rod in my hot water heater and it was nice to not have to use a bulky pipe wrench. The grip on the wrench is comfortable and the wrench itself is long enough to get good leverage. Fit and finish on the wrench looks pretty good and will hold up to some tough abuse. Definitely a wrench to have in your tool bag. Thanks.

I highly recommend this wrench to anyone that does any kind of pipe work!! Teeth are very sharp and grab well, and not having to adjust it all the time helps save time.

(What's this)
With this pipe wrench, you can get away from the hassle of adjusting the wrench to fit the job. This wrench has a spring loaded opening that allows you to put it on any size pipe from 5/8" to 1 1/2". Once you put it around the pipe the teeth on the wrench grab the pipe just like an old style pipe wrench. It works perfectly. You can tighten or loosen just by turning the wrench around. When you want to take it off the pipe, you just open up the spring loaded claw and pull it off. I found that you can also take it off the pipe by twisting it a little. I definitely recommend this as a much more convenient pipe wrench.
