Review of Vise grips Irwin

Bryan Brickson Owner at Kent Auto Repair
They don’t make them like the used to. I have used this brand of vise grips for over 50 years. They have always been very durable and lasted through 20 years of abuse before I lost them. This new pair broke while I was clamping 2 pieces of steel together with one hand. How could the pieces have fallen to the floor? The jaw broke and I wasn’t even misusing them.


Made in China?

maybe just a casting flaw? I had a brand new Cal Van o2 wrench that broke the first time I used it, with very little pressure. The replacement has been fine.
