Honey, Knipex Shrunk the Pliers

When deciding to scale down the size of the Cobra Series, Knipex had accessibility in mind. So, with the Cobra XS pliers, Knipex first shrunk the overall size down to just under the 4-inch mark. They then included the appropriate features to make sure you can get these pliers right where you need them.

The Knipex Cobra XS pliers can self-lock onto pipes and nuts for reduced hand force. It features 11 adjustment positions that can be selected one-handed by sliding the handle. In fact, by replacing the push-button with a sliding handle, the Knipex Cobra XS can lock, adjust, and self-clamp onto the desired workpiece with just one hand.

Though it has a short frame and a slim head, these Knipex pliers can grip up to a 1-inch nut or a 28 Ø mm pipe in its non-slip jaws. A pinch guard keeps your hands safe as well. Knipex textured the handles to provide a better grip, and the whole thing comes in an atramentized gray finish.

What is Atramentizing?
Atramentizing provides corrosion protection through a process in which steel gets coated with phosphate using a zinc phosphate solution at 194° F (90° C).

I can’t find it for sale at Amazon, or anywhere else. Do you know when it will be available? Lowes carries Knipex. I wonder if they will carry this? They currently do not have it on their website.
