    A couple of weeks ago I had an issue with a stripped screw for a tv wall mount. My screw outs couldn't get it out. The screw was cheap. They just drilled it out without ever biting into it.

    So I went to the old life saver tool. A pair of vise grips. Turns out I don't have a good pair anymore so while out buying some leg bolts to use on the mount, I bought a new pair.

    I normally buy Motormaster but I happened to be at Home Depot so I decided to see if they had anything worth buying. I found this 7" straight jaw, Husky vise grip.

    I paid about $8 or 9 for them so it wasn't bad. Nice grip on the handle. I'm happy with them. And like my Motormaster tools, they are a lifetime warranty.

    They did the job I bought them for. Worked perfect. Tv is mounted and being enjoyed by the family. :thumbsup:

    Everyone should own at least one pair of vise grips. Ideally, you should have more then one set. Different sizes, straight and curved jaw and needle nosed. They have many uses.

    But do not just grab for them first. Use a proper sized wrench or screw driver first. Vise grips can chew up bolts so its best to use the proper tool. Use the vise grips when needed.
