Title:
HAND OPERATED GRIPPING TOOLS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2017/153743
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The main fixed handle (301) optionally incorporates two swivel out arms (315), which can form part of a three-legged base (317). When operated thus, the jaws (200, 201, 301) and moving handle (302) point generally upwards from the formed base (317), the moving handle (302) can now be operated by one hand leaving the other free to position the workpiece (80). The moving handle (302) can incorporate a further locking switch (500) that can be utilised in both a switchable locking position or non-locking position upon a sprung toothed strut (400) between the handles (300, 301), at least one of which further incorporates a curved resilient portion (72) in order to provide useful sprung closure of the parallel moving jaws (201) upon the workpiece (80) in the locking method. A lanyard (94) can be optimally attached to the swivel out arm ends to provide the user with a chest mounted portable vice.
