Self-locking on pipes and nuts due to teeth set against the rotation – no slipping on the workpiece. Pinch guard prevents fingers from being pinched. Adjustment at the touch of a button. Has 25 adjustment positions to adjust to hex nuts up to 1 13/16″ and round pipe up to 2″.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

A 10-inch model that's both lightweight and rugged. Streamlined design easily fits awkward spaces. Easy to adjust and comfortable to use.
The Knipex are much slimmer and as a consequence much lighter to carry all day long. Compared to my old pliers, the Knipex have lasted considerably longer. The teeth are extremely hard and difficult to damage. The Knipex pliers are ergonomically designed and easy to hold and grip with.

What reviewers didn't like

Not as effective on smaller items, because the grip tends to slip off smaller objects.
The Knipex Cobra pliers are considerably more costly than other water pump pliers.
