    Great pliers, excellent grip and range
    Very happy with these pliers. Have used them a few times, notably on stubborn outdoor hose ends that were extremely tight due to corrosion. The shape of the jaw easily accommodated the various hose ends that I had to undo. These pliers have very long grips, which provide tremendous leverage. All of the fittings easily came off without any issues. The rubber molding on them is pretty comfortable, but gloves are always recommended! Overall build quality is excellent and they are very sturdy.

    Great Size for Many Home Projects
    I received the Gear wrench Pitbull pliers; they have a good grip that has an ergonomic design that wipes clean easily due to the plastic coating. They are forged from steel and are precision machined for long life and durability. The pliers have a deep grooves in the jaw that provide a strong grip, even when the jaws are not perpendicular to the pipe or nut, and a high leverage joint design that provides a strong grip, even when it's at on a 35° angle. It has aggressive angled teeth for increased grip and 10 jaw positions for a large handle span and improved gripping comfort. Pinch-stop design prevents the handle from pinching your palm or fingers. The uses range from plumbing jobs to tow hitch components. When doing plumbing repairs on ¾ inch pipe it is amazing how large the connectors and fittings become. Hitch balls can require 1 7/8 inch socket to attach and remove a nut on a 1 ¼ in shank. This wrench can handle it all because of the large grip size

    Great addition to my tool set!
    This is a nice and large groove pliers. Very well manufactured, sturdy and durable. Great for the plumbing industry and trades, or any metal/machine shop, mechanics shop. Heavy to hold for long periods, but that is why it is so large. The handle are slip resistant and comfortable to hold. Very wide opening grip with grooves for holding pipe. Great buy!

    Excellent Plier
    GearWrench Pitbull 16-inch Pliers These pliers are welcome addition to my toolbox. With these pliers you get the ability to grab those larger fasteners with hardened jaws from a company know for tools that last. GearWrench has made a heavy-duty plier with hardened jaws that will grab those square nuts, round pipes a most other fasteners that are both larger but don’t necessarily need the grip of a pipe wrench.

    Grips like a gorilla
    This review is for GEARWRENCH PITBULL PLIERS, Product No. 82167. This is a product of Apex Tool Group of Apex, NC. This tool is a monster as pump pliers go. It weighs about 3 pounds, 3 ounces and is 16 inches long. Its size is conducive to two-handed use, it gripping like a gorilla when called upon to grab and twist. Despite it's size and weight, it is comfortable to use because of its soft grip handle and pinch-stop provision. It has jaws designed so that it can be successfully used for significant off-angle applications, indicated to be as great as 35 degrees. This pliers has 10 jaw positions, the widest providing a huge jaw opening of 4-1/4 inches. This tool has very good fit and finish. It is manufactured in Vietnam and finished in Mainland, China. It has a lifetime warranty. I have used it like a pipe wrench and as a tool to twist off rusted bolts when dismantling a badly rusted antique farm implement for restoration. It worked great. This is a very welcome addition to my toolbox.

    Absolutely love these pliers.
    My Review for GEARWRENCH 16 in Pitbull K9 V jaw dipped handle tongue and groove pliers. Just got to say I love most of my Gearwrench tools. These are no exceptions. They replace a pair of 25 year old craftsman pliers I had. I would say these have a better jaw design. Better ability to grab a nut or pipe with relentless grip. As always the quality to value ratio is off the charts. I recommend Gearwrench to most my young techs in my shop don't waste your money on the tool trucks.

    Great Item
    Whether I'm buying a new hand tool or replacing a broken or worn one, I'm finding I'm drawn more and more to the Gearwrench brand. They are a good quality tool and I have a number of their other tools in my toolbox. I needed a larger slip joint plier, and this one is king of the toolbox at 16 inches. It also has a unique jaw design that not only grabs on the flats of a nut or bolt head, but can also grab the corners when you have a limited swing space.

    Unique Jaws
    The Gearwrench 16 inch Pitbull tongue and groove pliers are huge with a unique set of jaws. Although these may not be the pliers most may use on a daily basis, it is a pliers you cannot do without when you come across larger things such as tightening or loosening the nut on a kitchen sink strainer. Or a can where the screw top on too tight. You can hold the can with a large pair and grip the top with a smaller pair.

    These pliers are my new favorite. Everyone should have a pair of slip joint pliers in their bag or box. These new gear wrench are top notch quality and top value. This set has worked its way into my everyday tool bag at work. The 8" pliers are a perfect size for about 90% of my work. They are comfortable in your hand and are great for one handed operation. The handles have a nice grip that is comfortable to hold but won't get stuck in pockets or bag pouches. The jaws have nice sharp grooves that grip the work piece great without damaging it. Jaws open to 1.5" so they handle a lot of big jobs in a small package. I will be buying a second pair for my home use. Highly recommend over the more expensive brands.
