I know nothing about them, but check out:
VG6000BK The ViperGrip 6-Inch 2-in-1 Self-Adjusting and Locking
Pliers I think they are similar, they do not have smooth jaws, on
viper-grip.com they have jaw protectors, some sites say they come
with protective covers for the jaws, but that is not listen ob Amazon
which has the lowest price, $9.99. They also have a needle nose
style. Has anyone used these?
