Slip joint pliers, also known as adjustable pliers or water pump pliers, are a type of hand tool designed for gripping and manipulating objects. They feature a pivot point, often near the center of the tool, with multiple grooves or notches that allow the user to adjust the jaw size. This adjustable feature enables the pliers to accommodate various sizes of objects by sliding the pivot along the grooves, providing versatility in gripping tasks. Slip joint pliers typically have long handles with flat or serrated jaws that can be used for gripping, holding, bending, or turning nuts, bolts, pipes, and other objects. They are commonly used in automotive, plumbing, and general household applications.
