Just found a mole grip in my Grandad's old tool box he left me - really helpful in figuring out how to use this beautiful heirloom! Cheers guy!

Thank you!

Thanks! This did help me with my dogs tags. I brought the vice grip for my tool box and hope I get more varied use out of it versus pliers. Could not figure out how to use it and your video is a great help. I got his tag installed without assistance. Usually I get someone else to do it.

I thought Vise Grip is a brand name for Locking Wrench. Is it true?

I have a vice grip and the middle connector has come out of the groove so they do not work, how do I put it back in place?

For easy movement, you should use WD-40.

Really informative. I thought it was used to dismantle bath taps and nuts. I tried this and cocked up my bath tap. Do I use the mole to grip and then use a spanner to dismantle the collar nut on the tap?

They are superb for holding something for soldering, or small welding. They are also really good when something is too small for a metal vice. Too many people use then for undoing bolts, which mess up the thread on the nut and bolt and rips out the grip in the locking pliers.
