Product Review (submitted on August 1, 2010):
The pliers depicted are Knipex, also rebranded and sold by Snap-on and Stanley/ Proto. These are most likely made by Steck. Knipex have an extended lock release lever that pulls toward the adjuster to release whereas the pliers Eastwood actually sell have a short lever that pulls away from the adjuster similar to Vise Grip style locking pliers. They're still decent quality but you ought to be aware. These weren't accurately depicted and because so I was disappointed when they arrived.
