PETOL™ Friction Tongs w/Chain

Friction tongs w/chain.

PETOL™ FRICTION TONGS W/CHAIN were designed especially for holding and turning pipe that must be carefully protected. The tongs have no bits or teeth inserts to mar the surface and therefore must turn the pipe by friction alone. The tongs are easily applied and removed and cannot jam or bind. Perfect ratcheting action and efficient performance are assured. When ordering, make sure to specify the exact O.D. on which the tongs are to be used.
