The tool is made in the U.S. Features include a pinned and brazed upper jaw, an oversized adjustment screw, a textured body and lever that increases the grip when being used by oily hands, and a nickel finish for a classic look and feel. The pliers come in 10-inch and 7-inch lengths with optional cutters. The 10-inch pliers deliver a 5,000-pound clamping force, while the 7-inch version delivers 4,000 pounds of force.
