The KNIPEX TwinGrip Slip Joint Pliers, No. 82 01 200, can be used across a variety of industries and for a wide range of applications. They are ideal for damaged or stripped fasteners.

Features and benefits

  • Gripping capacity for diameters from 5/32" to 7/8".
  • Special hardened teeth (approx. 61 HRC). 
  • Forged from oil-hardened, high-grade chrome vanadium electric steel. 
  • Reliable gripping of flat workpieces due to the three-point system. 
  • Box-joint design to maximize stability and longevity. 

Selling points

  • Slim head allows the pliers to work in confined, hard-to-reach spaces. 
  • Unique combination of front and side gripping.
  • Front jaw is ideal for stripped screws, while the side jaws are ideal for round, square, and hex materials.


Motivated by innovation, KNIPEX took slip joint pliers, a commonly known tool, and added three key features to make it exclusively different. The front gripping area is ideal for gripping rounded or stripped fasteners while the side gripping jaws have been optimized with opposing teeth for maximum force. The third key feature is the push-button adjustment. The combination of these features provides the user with a unique and versatile tool. It is the industry’s first five-adjustment push-button slip joint pliers.
