I am a tool nut. I always have a swiss army knife in one pants pocket and a 4" Vise Grip in another. I have carried a Vise Grip since the early 1960s - initially a 5", but it wore too many holes in my pockets. When the 4" became available, I switched! Even this small Vise Grip can do almost anything.
I have spent many years as a field scientist in various remote locations in various developing countries. I always carry a few extra pairs of 4" Vise Grips as gifts to local mechanics who help me.
The high point of my Vise-Grip career came when I used my ever-present Vise Grips to reconnect the throttle linkage on a Vietnam-era helicopter in Antarctica in 1992. The alternative was to hunker down for 24 hours waiting for a replacement chopper with a certified mechanic...
I get separation anxiety if I misplace my Vise Grips.
This is a great product but does not work for what I bought it for. I bought a filtering shower head for travel and a reviewer of that head said this is what he uses in hotels to change out the head when traveling...this is too small for the job...but I will keep it as it is well made and could come in handy in my tool box.
Vise Grip makes quality products and this miniature model is no exception. I use this product almost every day when working on a project that has limited space. The tool should last a lifetime.
