Tekton 5" Locking Pliers Straight Jaw PLK00005
Straight Jaw Profile — Wide and relatively short jaws clamp and hold flat stock, L-angle, and sheet metal in position for welding or assembly. Deep, sharp, regularly spaced teeth offer an evenly distributed grip on smooth, flat surfaces. Tekton's pull-to-release lever allows you to clamp, release, reposition, and clamp again with one hand — and with more control than a traditional pinch-style trigger. A generously sized knob with deep diamond tread knurling makes for easy tensioning even if you’re wearing heavy gloves or have slippery hands. Create a T-handle by inserting a screwdriver or hex key into the hole in the adjustment knob. With this extra leverage, you can lock the pliers onto the workpiece and gradually add or release tension to fine-tune the clamping force. The round shape of the knob allows you to quickly spin it with your fingertips like a dial to make adjustments much more easily than is possible with other paddle-type knob designs. Clamping force at the jaws directly depends on the strength and integrity of the pliers’ three main rivets — which together make up the 4-point mechanical structure of the pliers. Tekton makes certain their pliers can withstand high shear forces by using rivets made from tough 4135 chrome-molybdenum steel.
