The Knipex Cobra FTW. It's amazing that such a small tool can take on such big jobs.
I used to carry one. Then I took the plunge and tried the little Knipex pliers wrench. Holy cow! That little thing is amazing. I loathe to use any other adjustable wrench now. The only downside is the price, but it is worth it. Buy once, cry once.
I have the little Cobra plier too, but have a harder time justifying it when I already have a Rebar. Although it is also quite effective.
I carry all three in my work/EDC/GHB pack but, if I had to choose only two? I would keep the Pliers Wrench and Rebar.
Same here. I carry a Knipex Cobra pliers or Knipex plier wrench next to my Victorinox Swisstool everyday. I couldn't live without them.
Still setting up my bike tool kit, and in the course of researching it found the Presta Ratchet: http://www.prestaratchet.com/
Currently compromising on a Harbor Freight right-angle screwdriver w/ a hex—1/4" drive adapter.
I bought a pair of 180mm Cobra pliers yesterday. Are the supposed to lock on like vice grips?
No they don't lock on.
The guy in this video stands on them. Is it a special model?
The only problem with those small knipex wrenches (yes I used to have some) is that they are really hard to locate when you lose the little bastids....
I guess it holds on to things similarly to a vice grips but it's a little different as well.
It does not lock on. The teeth within the jaws are angled in, the powder coated pipe gives the teeth something to hold on to. It's all leverage and grip as opposed to Vice-Grip mechanics
They do grab really well and they are strong. I have stood on my 8" cobra pliers for encouragement when discussing life with reluctant old plumbing and I weight 240.
I've carried the same 4" crescent wrench for over 20 years at work. Been the best 10 bucks I've ever spent, feel naked without it.
