Whether it’s plumbing,¬†automobiles, or general assembly, a wrench is a necessity by all means. The IRWIN VISE-GRIP wrench set comes with two wrenches, a smaller wrench of 6 inches, as well as a larger wrench of 10 inches.

This two-piece set is engineered specifically for pipes but can be used to fasten other things as well, which adds to its multiple functionalities.

Product Specifications:

It is made of vanadium chrome, which makes this wrench rust resistant and therefore, longer lasting.  

The ProTouch grip ensures no slippage and a nice and firm grip to provide adequate leverage and torque when making the adjustments, without any sloppiness. The dimensions of 6 and 10 inches mean that they tackle any adjustment problem.

The smaller one is suited to smaller sized fasteners and hard to reach places, whereas the larger one is better for larger nuts and bolts and provides stronger torque. The adjustable jaw on both of these wrenches means that they have a broad range of capacities to accommodate almost all types of fasteners.

The wrenches come with a metric scale etched into the jaw, to make it easier to gauge the length of the opening. The adjustment is also smooth and reliable, which means you won’t have to keep adjusting the jaw again and again. These wrenches also come with a limited lifetime warranty in case of any defects.

Pros and Cons

This is a heavy duty set, which means that it is robust and sturdy and has excellent durability because of its chrome-vanadium finish.

The scale markings on the jaw are also very helpful during usage, especially when looking for preciseness. The ProTouch grip not only holds up torque and provides sufficient grip, but it also provides comfort. The best part about this set is that they can adjust a wide variety of fasteners because they are of different sizes and also because they have adjustable jaws.

The cons of this are that movable jaws do require somewhat frequent adjusting to get it to fit particular nuts and bolts properly.

Why should you buy it?

This wrench set is worth purchasing because the two wrenches combined can handle most of the adjusting jobs without requiring other larger or smaller wrenches, due to the variety of fasteners that they can accommodate.

The handles themselves provide comfort, which is hard to find with other standard toolbox wrenches. ¬†With a reasonable price tag, it’s practically like buying two wrenches for the price of one. High-quality, durable wrenches that will last.

Final Verdict:

The final decision regarding these wrenches is that they fare quite well against similar products.They are sturdy and heavy duty and can be used in multiple situations, which makes them versatile. They offer high quality for a great price, and the best part is that they take care of almost all your adjusting needs without having to spend much money on multiple wrenches for your toolbox.
