The new Irwin Vise-Grip pliers offer high versatility, and help users do more work with just one tool.

Irwin, a channel sponsor, provided a test sample for us to check out.

Irwin Heavy Duty Wire Strippers IWHT84002 Features

The new Irwin Vise-Grip electrical pliers features a wire stripper, curved blade wire cutter, crimper, pliers jaws, loop maker, grooved reamer, and machine screw shear cutting holes.

It can strip stranded wire from 12-22 AWG and solid wire from 10-20 AWG.

The curved jaws make it easier to cut larger wires and cables, compared to straight blade wire cutters.

The pliers have a spring-action mechanism with storage mode, and 3-shot bi-material handles for user comfort and control.

I have been testing the wire strippers, and have been pleased with the design so far. I plan to mainly use the multi-functional electrical tool for its curved wire cutting blades and precise stripping slots, and the gripping jaws are a good-to-have feature.

I tend to prefer single-function tools, but there are many projects and jobs where a do-it-all tool can be far more convenient. One thing’s certain – this Irwin Vise-Grip has come a long way from the types of multi-functional electrical tools I swore at and against years ago.

Irwin PowerSlot Pliers and Diagonal Cutter

The 7-in-1 electrical pliers are launching alongside new Irwin Vise-Grip PowerSlot pliers – 8″ diagonal cutting pliers, and 9.5″ lineman’s pliers.
