5 Inch Straight Jaw Locking Pliers



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.

Pull-to-Release Lever

Different from most other brands, all of our locking pliers use a pull-style trigger for a quick and easy one-handed release that won't pinch your fingers.

Wide Adjustment Knob

The large, round knob with deep knurling gives you the best grip for making adjustments—even if you're wearing gloves or have slippery hands.

Tensioning Through-Hole

Get extra leverage and fine-tune your clamping force by inserting a screwdriver or hex key into the through-hole to create a T-handle.

Strong Jaws and Teeth

The jaws are made from 4140 chrome molybdenum steel, an alloy that offers toughness, machinability, and corrosion resistance. The teeth are hardened to 45-50 HRC and should not chip or strip even on fasteners up to Grade 8 or Class 12.9.

Durable Nickel-Plated Finish

Before assembly, the individual jaw, handle, lever, and crossbar parts are shot-peened to create smooth, consistent surfaces. The final finish is a durable nickel plating that protects against corrosion.

High-Strength Rivets

Three main rivets work together to make up the 4-point mechanical structure of the pliers and give it its strength. To make sure ours can withstand high shear forces, the rivets are made from tough 4135 chrome molybdenum steel.
