A tool that can do everything is not yet available on the market. But the plier wrench is close at hand. The unique design makes it a combination of spanner, ratchet spanner and pliers. This makes it an adjustable, universal tool for screwing, bending, holding, pressing, gripping and ratcheting. Users who have had to reach into the tool box once again in the past can save not only cash but above all time and energy with a plier wrench.
The GEDORE range includes several variants with different sizes and handle designs, as well as a VDE plier wrench. Since the end of 2020, a plier wrench from the GEDORE red line has also been available.
The smallest size 7" from GEDORE covers a spanner size from 0 to 42 mm (0 - 1.5/8") and is equipped with blue dipped handles. If you want to cover a larger width across flats, it is best to use a 10" model from GEDORE or GEDORE red. With a jaw opening of up to 52 mm, the GEDORE plier wrench offers the largest width in its class, while the GEDORE red variant, with a jaw opening of up to 50 mm, is only slightly smaller. For extra ease of use and power transmission, the 10" GEDORE plier wrench is available not only as a TC variant with submerged handle protection sleeves, but also as a JC variant with 2-component handles.
Working in the electronics sector places its own demands on users and tools. In general, only professionals should work on voltage conducting workpieces. For the extra safety required, the GEDORE VDE plier wrench is VDE insulated up to 1000 Volts. The handle is surrounded by a double check tool insulation: an outer red and an inner yellow layer, which not only protect the user, but also clearly indicate when the insulating function is no longer given. If the yellow insulating layer becomes visible, the tool must be replaced. In addition, the handle has an anti-slip feature.
Installations in industry and trade, as on-board tools for bicycles, motorbikes, cars, commercial vehicles and trucks, in the electronics sector for bending cables or components or as a practical all-rounder in the DIY sector. The plier wrench itself is versatile in application and use. Nevertheless the small difference often has a big effect. Depending on the requirements, when selecting the tool, you should pay particular attention to the width of the plier wrench, setting positions and extensions such as the automatic locking function and the protective jaw holder.

GEDORE has built in a quick adjustment function, including an automatic snap-in function with push-button locking. This means that the plier wrench can even be adjusted with one hand and easily locked and released.
Instead of using a joint, plier wrenches grip via a sliding mechanism. This ensures that the gripping surfaces are always parallel. In the perfectly balanced play with the lever action via the handles, the user can adjust to an enormously high pressing and clamping force: the jaws act on the workpiece with more than ten times the manual force.
The focus of the plier wrench is primarily on the processing of sensitive surfaces. However, the plain and parallel jaws leave no marks on the materials. Plastics, glass, chrome-plated parts remain completely undamaged. Additional jaws, such as the protective jaws for GEDORE plier wrenches, can be attached using special holders. They are suitable for handling particularly sensitive materials for which even the smooth jaws of the pliers spanner are too rough. Protective jaws are included in the scope of delivery of the JC S and TC S models and are also available separately.
