Husky has recently come out with a whole new line of pliers and wrenches that are designed to be affordable and come with a lifetime guarantee. Many of the new Husky hand tools look very similar to the hand tools we have seen growing up as kids, but Husky also has some new changes that you might not notice at first, and they have also made changes that are very noticeable.
The Double Speed Adjustable Wrench also comes with the addition of laser etched size markings, metric on one side and standard on the other. A tool with a very noticeable change is the new Self Adjusting Groove Joint Pliers that Husky has come out with. Another tool that saw some slight advancements is the slip joint pliers, or in their case, Self Adjusting Slip Joint Pliers.
Like I said above, Husky came out with a few hand tools that feature gadgets and gizmos to make them better, but they also have their own versions of regular old tried and true hand tools.
Update: Husky got back to me and said that the gap at the bottom of the Diagonal Pliers is there for stripping wires. The pivot points on all of the hand tool were very smooth right from the start, and Husky was able to accomplish this without the addition of excess play being found in the pivot.

Copyright © 2014 Review Ebooks, All trademarks are the property of the respective trademark owners. Husky, Home Depot’s house brand, has recently expanded their hand tool lineup with several new designs, including this 10-inch self-adjusting groove joint pliers.
Like other water pump pliers, these pliers are most useful for gripping hex fasteners, pipes, and odd-shaped parts. When you squeeze the handles together to clamp onto an object, the moveable lower jaw self-adjusts to close the gap between it and the top jaw. The silver spring-action plunger creates a temporary pivot point where it contacts the top handle. When the jaws are in contact with an object or workpiece, the main pivot takes over and the pliers behave as any other groove joint pliers would. The fit and finish of these pliers are better than I expected, with the jaws clean and burr-free and the pliers working perfectly straight off the card. The jaws are designed for multi-purpose gripping needs, with a straight front section shaped to grip flat objects and the V-grooves for round, square, and hexagonal-shaped objects. The handle grips are rubbery and comfortable, although they’re not as soft and cushiony as the grips found on more premium pliers. Husky’s new self-adjusting groove joint pliers are comfortable to use, and they are speedier to adjust than ordinary groove joint pliers. I typically prefer 8-inch water pump pliers, but this 10-inch size is more generally useful due to its larger jaw opening and greater leverage.


These pliers are made in China and are covered by Husky’s guaranteed forever free replacement policy. They sent over a few of their new tools so we could take a look and let you know what we think about them. Husky has made a small change to the angle of the worm gear used to adjust the opening size, in an effort to make adjusting a bit faster. You might not find yourself using this feature very much, but I could see it being useful if you are adjusting a bolt that you cannot see but you know the size. When you clamp down on a pipe or fitting, the tool automatically closes down and adjusts to the correct size.
Now, I don't know how this new mechanism works because it is hidden inside the tool, but it works as advertised. They have a nice rubber grip texture, but the finish on them does not appear to be consistent from tool to tool. I have purchased other name brand hand tools and have not been happy with the smoothness of the pivot point, so I was happy to see these Husky tools were all working nicely right out of the packaging.
In all honesty, it is hard to comment on how well these will last over the years compared to other seasoned hand tool brands, but if the warranty is as good as they claim, it might not matter. More specifically, they say that the self-adjusting feature allows [for] one-handed fast, automatic adjustment.
The self-adjusting mechanism is smooth and consistent, and even quicker to use compared to other pliers that must be manually dialed-in to a particular opening width.
Once the jaws are clamped onto an object, they behave as regular tongue-and-groove or groove joint pliers would.
As you squeeze the handles the top handle slides along the plunger and the lower jaw clicks up to close the gap. I noticed that the horizontal jaw has a bit of horizontal play, but this is not out of the ordinary for water pump-style pliers.
They are far more comfortable than the grips attached to Kobalt’s self-adjusting Magnum Grip pliers.
Hopefully Husky will come out with smaller sizes in the future – I would buy an 8-inch model without hesitation. While they are not quite as comfortable to use as the more premium pliers in my toolbox, they cost a fraction as much. Review samples are typically given away, donated, or retained for benchmark and comparison purposes.
The new feature promises double the adjustments speed and gives the tool the name, Double Speed Adjustable Wrench. The auto adjust feature actually works really well; it adjusts to the correct size and still positions the handles in a way that is comfortable for the user.


Some tools have a rougher or smoother texture than others and some tools even have nibs on them that are a result of manufacturing, and can be uncomfortable. The Home Depot believes that consumers and bloggers are free to form their own opinions and share them in their own words. While technically true, the pliers really require two free hands to set them up prior to adjustment and use. With these pliers there’s no need for trial and error, they just automatically adjust to the right opening, every time.
Changing the angle of the worm gear does open up the possibility of slippage under heavy load, but I did not notice this to be a problem. The downside to the tool is that it is not as easy to open and close it (while keeping it the same size) without it slipping to a smaller size. With the new Husky Self Adjusting Slip Joint Pliers, you just grip them and they do the adjusting for you.
The only complaint I have is with the Diagonal Plier, who's cutting edge does not reach all the way down to the pivot on the tool.
The Home Depot’s policies align with WOMMA Ethics Code, FTC guidelines and social media engagement recommendations. When you think about it, all pliers of this general style designed for one-handed use, regardless of how they’re adjusted. You are not typically using an adjustable wrench for precise applications, so the added speed seems worth the chance of a little slipping.
So for repetitive work, a regular Husky Groove Plier would probably work better, because it is locked into its position.
There is a small gap between the pivot and the cutting edge which makes it difficult to cut something at the point of the tool with the greatest amount of leverage. All Husky hand tools have a lifetime warranty; and offers a hassle free replacement of any Husky hand tool equal in value as published in an internal Home Depot Memo in March of 2010.
I can't think of a reason for this gap to be there, which in my eyes makes it a design flaw. Currently packaging is being reformatted to reinforce this policy and avoid confusion of requiring a receipt.
