The Vise-Grip
®
Locking Tool was invented in 1924 by a blacksmith in a small town of DeWitt, Nebraska. William Petersen
was a Danish immigrant who invented the first locking pliers in his blacksmith shop, and began selling them from the
back of his car to farmers and people in surrounding towns. He patented his new idea and called it VISE-GRIP
®
.
Since then, VISE-GRIP
®
has gained global brand recognition as the first choice for locking pliers. Innovation and
quality are the core values of the VISE-GRIP
®
brand. With proven performance in every turn, these are the tools that
tradespeople choose first – and pass on to the next generation.
The IRWIN
®
VISE-GRIP
®
family offers a full line of locking pliers, water pump pliers, cutting and VDE Pliers.

Originally established in 1898 in the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield in the UK, the Record Tools Factory was swiftly
able to make a long lasting contribution to the worldwide reputation of the region for the manufacture of high quality
steel and castings.
The Record
®
brand name was introduced in 1909 and by the 1920’s the product range had expanded into vices, planes,
clamps and pipe wrenches enabling the business to grow rapidly in the UK and many overseas markets.
Today, IRWIN
®
Record
®
continues excelling by sticking to the traditional values set by its founders, producing tools that
are highly valued amongst professional users for quality and durability that remains strong today.
