The Angled Pliers Wrench features 15-degree angled handles for better accessibility and more finger and knuckle space when working up against surfaces. The tool has push-button adjustment with 17 different laser-etched positions to find the perfect position, up to 1 ¾" capacity. Each position can be locked in place, making the Angled Pliers Wrench an excellent tool for one-handed applications. The pliers wrench also features cam ratchet action for quick and efficient ratcheting on a workpiece without having to take the tool off and put it back on like a standard adjustable wrench. The parallel jaws evenly distribute force to the workpiece for a secure grip that is 10 times a user’s hand strength, which makes it both strong and versatile. With smooth jaws, the Angled Pliers Wrench can loosen or tighten a workpiece without damaging surfaces such as chrome, brass or aluminum. Ideal for automotive applications, the Angled Pliers Wrench can be used for flush work or tightening screws on flat surfaces and hydraulic connections. The body of the Angled Pliers Wrench is forged out of chrome vanadium electric steel.

“The Angled Pliers Wrench combines the functionality of pliers with the smooth jaws of an adjustable wrench to make one strong and versatile tool,” said Todd Shumate, president, KNIPEX Tools. “These pliers provide easy access, so users can work in tight spaces without scraping their knuckles.”
