Knipex 86 03 180 7 1/4-Inch Pliers Wrench
A one-of-a-kind tool with unlimited possibilities, the patented, easy-to-use Knipex pliers wrench is a fantastic tool for fastening, gripping, holding, and bending. Its slim profile allows easy access to confined spaces, making it one of the most versatile tools in your toolbox. This model (86 03 180) has a 7 1/4-inch length and a 1 3/8-inch opening capacity. It features a time-saving push button adjustment with 13 adjustment settings and infinite positions for quickly locking onto a variety of workpieces. Its parallel smooth jaws avoid damaging soft or plated materials and provide even, full-contact gripping of a wide range of sizes. It's a great tool for tightening locknuts, exerting pressure to activate the adhesive power of contact adhesives, edge breaking in tile work, snapping cable ties, and utilization as a small vice.
Unlike an open-end wrench with uneven compression that can cause surface damage, this Knipex pliers wrench offers zero backlash under pressure. With a 10-to-1 lever ratio, the cam action design ensures a strong, secure grip without hand or wrist strain. The self-ratcheting action allows for fast, easy operation while eliminating the need for additional tools. The Knipex pliers wrench is available in a number of grips and sizes for a variety of applications.
Excellent for gripping, holding, pressing, and bending applications.
- Jaw capacity: 1 3/8-inches.
- Adjustment positions: 13.
- Length: 7 1/4-inches.
- Weight: 9 ounces.
- Handles: Plastic coated.
Quality in Every Detail
Sometimes we give our pliers a really hard time. We try to destroy them to find out what makes them good and long-lasting. Because we don't want to leave anything to chance, we take a long, careful look.
The steel Knipex uses is precisely hardened with a maximum of 0.8% carbon and defined parts of chromium and vanadium, guaranteeing optimum cutting performance and service life — even though it requires special production and costs a bit more. But our high product demands require this.
Knipex also looks closely at the small details. The angles, the sharpness, the hardness, the toughness of the cutting edges. The precision and smooth movement of the joint. The handle design and the finish. We keep reviewing these subjects, we research, we test, and we improve our pliers.
Headquartered in Wuppertal, Germany, Knipex is an independently-owned family enterprise steeped in tradition and specializing in the manufacturing of high-quality pliers. It all started back in 1882 when C. Gustav Putsch set up his own forge shop in Cronenberg (now a suburb of Wuppertal), and the company is now run by a fourth generation of that family. One of the world's leading brand in pliers today, Knipex is focused on the performance, service life, and ergonomics of its tools in order to meet the high expectations of professional users.

They far exceed any crescent wrench and I'd go as far to say they do a better job than any of the open ended spanners I've spent a fortune collecting. They will break loose nuts and bolts even if you only have room to get the tips to make contact with half the opposing flats, try doing that with open ended spanners let alone a crescent wrench. Add in their ability to ratchet back by releasing your grip and these are impressive.
So Impressed I've ordered a 10inch pair to go with these and I'll be ordering a 7inch pair to leave in the car.

Very easy to EDC (everyday carry) with a belt pouch made for multi tools or torches. I made a custom one for it.
I posted a full video review about it on Youtube, but I don't think I'm allowed to link stuff here.
Don't overthink this purchase, it's one of the nicest tools you will ever own.
Shown (in the photo with my hand) next to the Knipex Cobra, which I'm not a fan of.
Also consider getting a Wera Zyklop Speed Ratchet. Similar sized tool and they work great as part of a compact kit. (Green tool in attached photo)
Another nice compact tool is the SOG Pocket PowerPlier, which has around half as much grip force as this, which is still a lot. Not pictured.
And the other photo is showing some scrap metal that I bent to shape and used to repair my headphones.
Six months ago I bought the 125mm version (86 03 125) of the Knipex, and have been carrying it with me every day in a pouch on my belt, alongside my Leatherman Surge multitool, to replace a 4" Bahco adjustable spanner.
Whilst the Leatherman will happily grip objects in its pliers, the teeth are not best suited for tightening nuts and bolts. The Knipex pliers wrench on the other hand, with its smooth parallel action jaws, is a much better tool for this sort of work. If necessary, a bolt can be held stationary with the Leatherman, and then the nut can be loosened with the Knipex.
The jaw opening of 23mm vastly exceeds the 13mm of the Bahco, and it can be used for jobs which an adjustable spanner can't tackle, like straightening metal. Once you get the hang of it, the ratcheting action speeds up tightening and loosening tasks, and the self-tightening jaws mean that you don't have to grimly keep the handles pressed together like a pair of pliers.
Although I don't use it every day like the Leatherman, it has come in very useful and is particularly good on brake pipes.
I have no hesitation in recommending this great little tool!
