Knipex Cobra® XS Pipe Wrench and Water Pump Pliers grey atramentized, embossed, rough surface 100 mm (self-service card/blister) 87 00 100 BK
About this deal
With 11 adjustment positions that can grip nuts up to 24mm diameter or pipes up to 28mm in diameter, this offers all the versatility and flexibility of its bigger brothers in the Cobra range. The following panel allows you to customize your consent preferences for any tracking technology used to help us achieve the features and activities described below. I've always wanted a pair of pliers that are compact enough to unobtrusively fit into a pocket, yet strong enough to, well, do what I expect pliers to do.
Unlike the other cobra pliers, the XS has naked textured handles which apparently were deliberately left that way to maintains the pliers slim profile.However, if you already have the Knipex Cobra (125mm), you might not need the XS unless you really need micro pliers. With its slim multi-component grips without a collar, for example, the KNIPEX Cobra® 87 02 250 can be transported particularly easily and can also be used in tight spaces. Going up a size, the 125mm is still pocket sized (but still with 27mm capacity) and a tool to carry everyday, but like the rest of the range, this version has a coated handle for comfort.
Oddly, the jaws on the smaller Cobra XS open significantly more than the jaws on the 5-inch mini pliers wrench.This plus my weatherman helps me take care of 90% of situations in the moment until I can get to some more ideal tools.
