I've been using this clamp exclusively for the past two weeks for seemingly endless polishing... It's been wonderfully helpfull.
Once you start using the AUTOGRIP, you will throw away your old locking pliers away and replace it with the Auto-Grip.
Once I got mine, I was really surprised how easy it was to use and how I didn't have to adjust a "knurled" knob each time I wanted to clamp on something. I just threw away my old locking pliers because the AUTOGRIP is so much easier and faster to use.
It's a great tool with hundreds of uses.
We’ve never found a better second pair of hands than with the new Autogrip! We used it on a job immediately as both a clamp and pliers and it saved a lot of time and frustration. They are now standard-issue truck stock on all of our service trucks.
During my early years, I used many tools for a variety of tasks whether it be the construction of tree houses, skateboard ramps, etc. Now, as a homeowner with my first child on the way, this tool has been indispensable for knocking off many items on my ever-growing "honey do list". I recommend the AUTOGRIP for the "Do it Yourselfers" out there, as well as experienced tradesmen!
While installing new items on my van, I stripped the head of a screw that I was removing. Using the 8" Autogrip, I was able to remove the screw without much difficulty. After removing, I realized the screw was originally installed at the factory with loctite screw adhesive which is why my driver stripped the screw head.
What a great tool!
