Like other Journeyman pliers, the pump pliers feature a state-of-the-art, dual-material handle design, giving the user a better grip without sacrificing tool strength or durability. The ultra-soft, outer-surface handle material combines comfort with a firm grip, while the harder, inner-surface handle material is designed for extra toughness in harsh work environments. The Journeyman line from Klein offers everything a professional tradesman would expect from a Klein tool, with the addition of the contoured, cushioned handles. The tool feels more comfortable in the hand, and the non-slip handle surface allows for the firmer grip.

    Comments about Journeyman Pump Pliers:

    While I think that this product is intended for use with plenty of industrial application, I found that its range is pretty handy for working on anything from children's furniture to pool pumps. As quality goes, its tough to find tools of the same caliber. You pay for what you get.
