The enhanced Cobra water pump pliers feature 30 percent more gripping power than previously, says the company, and a full 2-inch jaw capacity. The patented self-locking adjustment means that at the push of a button the tool adjusts fast and securely to any work piece. According to the manufacturer, its favorable lever action leads to an optimum transmission of force, making turning nuts and bolts quicker and less tiring. The Cobra water pump pliers have special hardened teeth that are wear resistant, and its jaw configuration can grip any shaped object.
