Gearwrench PitBull Pliers | Man’s Best Friend on the Job

GearWrench Unleashes Pitbull Pliers on the Trades

Auto mechanics and tradesmen prize the best pliers that can grip, turn, and cut well. However, it isn’t often that we get all three at once. The Gearwrench PitBull Pliers look like a pretty compelling option. Not only do they seem to grip, turn, and cut well, but they also have great ergonomic features to make them comfortable to use. Many, if not all, of these new tools can be found with either dipped or dual-material handles.

Gearwrench on their New Tools

Professional technicians we talked to said that the most important things they looked for in their pliers are grip and cutting ability. We know they’re cutting day in and day out and we know that grip is critical to getting the job done. Those two goals are at the core of everything we put into our PitBull Pliers.

A Set of Gearwrench PitBull Pliers for Every Occasion

The Gearwrench PitBull Pliers include 38 individual products and six different sets. The range of tools covers just about any application the job calls for. Some of the models clearly traverse into other trades beyond automotive applications. Gearwrench seems to be casting a wide net with these new hand tools.

Gearwrench Pitbill Tongue and Groove Pliers

Auto-Bite with Automatic-Adjusting Jaws

The Gearwrench PitBull Auto-Bite Tongue and Groove Pliers come with comfortable dual-material handles that have been designed specifically for one-handed use. Squeezing the handle automatically adjusts the jaws for a precise fit. It features a thumb-operated Auto-Bite lever that has a slim profile for better access in tighter spots.

These pliers also feature aggressive angled teeth for better grip on hex nuts and bolts. The jaws allow for multiple positions that offer more flexibility and capacity. The overmolded grips provide comfort but without going too far and blowing out the diameters of the handles.

The coating on the handles won’t accidentally mark up workpieces, either. The pinch stop design also keeps you from pinching your hands if they snap closed suddenly. The ergonomic dual-material handles include end-mounted tether points as well as identification markers. This lets you pick them out of a tool bag quickly and easily.

They come in 6″, 8″, 10″, and 12″ sizes, as well as a 4-piece set that includes all of them.

K9 Jaws Got Bite

The Gearwrench PitBull K9 Tongue and Groove Pliers feature the K9 jaw system. This jaw design provides a secure bite, even when on a 35º offset angle. The aggressive, angled teeth give you a solid, easily-held grip along the workpiece. Meanwhile, Geawrench claims the narrow profile of the pliers provides 40% better access than the competition.

The K9 tongue and groove pliers feature 10 jaw positions for an optimized handle span and improved gripping. The Pinch-Stop design keeps you from painful pinching on your hands.

These pliers come with either dual material or dipped handles.

Gearwrench PitBull Solid-Joint Pliers

The Gearwrench PitBull Solid-Joint Pliers include linesman, long-nose, universal, and diagonal pliers. They let you cut with 35% less force thanks to their pivot-forward design and laser-hardened cutting edges. They also feature designs that extend the cutting life of the pliers by 50%. All four styles are available in either dual-material handles or dipped handles.

Gearwrench Linesman Pliers

The Solid-Joint Gearwrench Linesman Pliers feature a cross-hatched jaw for a better grip, a fish tape channel for flat steel fish tapes, and a reaming head for deburring pipes. We’ll need to get these in our hands to see how well they open and close, but the build quality looks solid. Gearwrench has these in 8″ and 9.5″ sizes and you can find them dipped or in the dual-material handles.
