As good as old. Jan. 6 2015
By Wayne - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I grew up using Vice Grips, and so did my father. They've been around far too long for most people to need an explanation of what locking pliers do. Petersen invented locking pliers back in the 1930s and they caught on, eventually becoming an indispensable tool during the war. Back then, they were still undergoing improvements, and by the time my father got his, they looked pretty much the same as they do now. So I had to ask myself how the new ones from Irwin compare to the originals. I compared several pairs of these to ones I've owned for many decades, which themselves were made the same way as the ones my father had. There were subtle differences between my old ones and these new ones, but for the most part, the construction was identical. The jaws on the 10WR were slightly thicker than they were on my original pair, and the same was true on the 6LN. The 5WR looked the same but I couldn't find a pair for direct comparison. The 10R, which are perhaps the first model made (see Popular Science magazine, December 1933) also appear to be as high in quality as ever.

The biggest difference between these and the older ones is that Petersen no longer makes them, and they are now made by Irwin in China. The old ones were made in Nebraska. Other subtle differences include more robust rivets on the handle's release mechanism. I didn't see anything at all that was lower in quality, but comparing them to my older tools made me realize that these do show signs of wear after enough years, so even though I already had several of the ones in this set, it would have been worth getting the entire set anyway.

This set comes with a tool bag that goes beyond what's needed just for this set, and can be used for a larger collection of tools.

These are the tools that I think of when I hear the name Vice Grips, but Irwin uses the term for other tools too. There are also off brand versions that vary in quality, but it's probably not worth getting them. You won't save enough money to warrant giving up quality. There are also other types of locking pliers on the market, such as Viper Grip 2-In-1 Locking Plier that also work well, but are more expensive and don't give the versatility of this set. The Viper Grips have a different way of working and are less intuitive to use, but can be easier to adjust when you know how. But the large jaws often leave you without enough room to maneuver in cramped places. That makes the Vice Grip set a more practical, versatile and affordable solution overall, and there are enough shapes and sizes to cover a big range of jobs.

China, Schmina--Vice-Grips are great! Jan. 8 2015
By William Jens Jensen - Published on Amazon.com

China, Schmina! These days, the steel from China is as good as the rare steel products still made in the USA. Indeed, much of the steel used for manufacturing in the US comes from China anyway. In addition, Chinese factories have to make products that meet the specifications of the company in question. Plus, any company can say "Made in the USA" as long as final assembly is accomplished in the US, regardless of where the components come from. These Irwin Vice-Grips are no different. Regardless of where they are actually manufactured, they seem at least as good as my trusty thirty-year-old Vice-Grips. What I especially like about this set is having the variety of sizes, including the needle-nose; sometimes my old locking plier is either too big or too small for the job. There isn't much else one can say about Vice-Grips. Irwin has wisely kept the design more or less the same as it has been forever; if it ain't broke, don't fix it. The bag is pretty handy, too, though I admit I use it for more than these pliers. When I have a little job, I gather the tools I will need in this bag. In general, I don't like to use Vice-Grips when a wrench will work, but when you don't have a choice it's great to have this selection. Highly recommended.

A nice set of professional grade vice-grips. Jan. 12 2015

These are an excellent set of hardened steel vice grips in a good variety of sizes and styles. I would absolutely recommend this reasonably priced set if you are new to the vice-grip game and really don’t know which one you need, or if you are looking for a high quality gift for the tool-hound in your life.

I knew I wanted a couple a vice-grips, not having any in my current tool collection, but hadn’t used them much in the past and was no expert on which ones were appropriate for my needs. Lo and behold, Irwin makes a variety set of the most common uses.

I am very familiar with the Irwin brand of tools, having purchased many of them in the past few years, and am (in general) pretty happy with them. These are no exception. They are all machined well –even the gripping ends of the smallest tools, which I have sometimes found ‘not perfect’ in other Irwin tools.

So after testing each of these tools, and gripping the heck out of my fingers, water pipes, pieces of wood, and whatever else I had lying around in my basement, I have to say I am pleased. The tools were very easy to open and close (via the smooth spinning screw knob at the end), and the teeth seemed exceptionally sharp and grippy. (They will put tiny dents in what you are gripping if you apply too much pressure.)

I have not used them long enough or hard enough to tell how long they’ll last, but with Irwin’s lifetime guarantee, and my experience with their other tools, I am pretty comfortable with recommending these to anyone who asks. In some ways I find these to be my generation’s replacement for Craftsman, which I really feel has taken a nosedive over the past 10 years. I now look elsewhere, like Irwin, when I want nice and MEATY tools.

Additionally, the tools come with a very heavy duty fabric tool bag with a zipper that closes it up. This is really overkill for the set, as there is a lot of extra space. You can easily make this your portable tool bag and take out a couple of the vice grips and add a variety of other tools for work around the house. Or, better yet, make an emergency kit for your car or truck... This bag is a nice add on, and not a piece of junk that you’ll toss aside.

Highly Recommended.
Awesome set of locking pliers! Jan. 10 2015

Two years ago, I bought my husband IRWIN Tools VISE-GRIP GrooveLock Pliers, Straight Jaw, 8- and 10-inch (1802532) for Christmas. He loved them so much that he has made it his personal mission to add as many IRWIN tools to his tool chest as possible. He likes these locking pliers even more than the GrooveLock IRWIN pliers. He can use them as pliers or clamps, and this set comes with enough different pliers than he would be hard pressed to find an around-the-house job that needs something else.

The other thing that really impressed me was the bag. It's a lot better quality than I expected. The canvas is very heavy, and I expect it to last many, many years. It has a zipper opening, and it has heavy duty wiring that holds it open. It reminds me of those old-fashioned doctor bags that I used to see in ancient movies. And the pockets! This bag has more pockets than I know what to do with! There are two outer pockets that have velcro on the flaps for secure closure. There are also six open pockets on the inside of the bag. As with the sturdy handles, the pockets are made of sturdy canvas, and they are securely sewn.

The pliers and the bag are all top quality, and I expect the pliers and bag to last a very long time. I suspect when our son inherits this set, everything will look and work as good as new.
