Along with low profile, our U-style vice grips also allow for custom jaw inserts such as smooth, diamond, rubber, serrated, and wavy. Each of these has specific benefits and are interchangeable to tailor the grip to your material and needs.

We offer a range of grips from 2.5kN up to 50kN. Every grip is made to exacting standards in Germany.
