The Grappler is one of those engineering feats that makes even us step back and marvel. This locking-plier snaps into ready position with just one-hand and locks down for a tight bite on any screw 5/8" or smaller. With 12 total components including a sturdy-sized knife blade, the Grappler is sure to be a Gerber classic.
A great tool. It some how broke. What do I do if its broken? Is there some place to send it since there is a lifetime warranty. Thank you for your help. Gerber ON!
A good idea that should have been better executed also the tools didn't lock properly in my first one (was replaced under warranty) There are only 4 blades and the pry-bar/ ruler should be replaced as its almost useless in my opinion.
Locking system makes 70 % of tool worthless blades don't lock Already skun up my knucks trying to use both screwdrivers what they call their Phillips driver isn't save your money!!!
The lock for the pliers has to much play and occasionally undoes itself the locks for the tools are weak and misaligned so tools(knife, file, screw driver, nail puller thing) all over rotate. I've had other gerber a before and this is not their greatest achievement.
When using the knife, the small nub locking system gives out and the knife bends back on itself making any cutting impossible. Terrible design on this but the rest is great. I wish i could post pictures
Very good Tool Locks down just as good as my " Vise Grip brand" Locking Pliers, the outside accessible tools are great except the Phillips screwdriver bit is quite useless it does NOT fit the screw head properly Needs to be more like the my Gerber 600 Phillips which fits the Phillips head screw perfectly. it would be great if it had a can opener added to it
I Have Both The Leatherman Crunch, And The Gerber Grappler, Nice Knife, But Where Do I Tie The Lanyard? No Place So It Will Get Lost. The Philips Screw Driver Is Not As Good As The Leatherman Crunch. I gave this 3 stars but I also give the Leatherman crunch 2 stars.
Worked great at first, but after a couple months, popped a spring. Now it doesn't close right. I should have stuck to regular pliers.
Got this multi-tool for Christmas and although very nice there were a couple small issues. The biggest was the center adjustment mechanism appeared to have black grease on it but it turned out to be the silver finish coming off with a black base under it. Looks very cheap and not exactly what I expected from Gerber.
A couple design issues I wasnt crazy about. I keep hitting the button on the side slider when trying to squeeze the handles causing the pliers to retract into the tool. The Phillips screwdriver isn't too thought out either and pretty useless due to its space saving design.
The rest of the tool seems to be great quality though.
Chris dont buy from ebay to save a few bucks...
Garbage, mine fell apart after two months of use.
I worked with this tool for a year at my last job and it proved invaluable. I used every feature at one time or another. Great tool!
I got this tool for mtb. Very useful, the pry to mount the tire, the pliers to tight the nuts, screw driver for some adjust...just what i need!!!
I bought a brand new on on Ebay and its terrible.The blades do not lock causing a hazard, the cutting edges on the pliers are pathetic, the locking head does not come straight out of the handles which I found AWKWARD to use, also don't bother the try to fix the blade issue with a torx bit as the screws are CRAP and strip without undoing, also the tools are naff (who needs a mini prybar anyway) there should have been more tools but most of the space is taken up by the mechanism. Next time I think I am going to either get another SOG or a leatherman. Its too bad as I used to think Gerber made excellent tools now I am not so sure - I think it was better before they moved production to China.
Being military have owned a few and issued some this one is great having the locking grip, it has alot of usage. Gotta Love it!!!
Just received for Christmas, can't wait to use it. Seems well built with great features. Exactly what I expect from a Gerber!
Nice multitool.. has just what I need, but they do not crimp elec. connectors... Broke my first one after 1 week... My warr. one should be in ny tomorrow.... now I know the limits....
this is a very great tool i love the flick action and the one slide button there couldve been a
few more tools but either way a very good tool
It's an amazing Multi-tool, the best I have ever used. The one handed opening is beautiful, and The tools are nice and strong.
Pros: Easy opening of pliers, Vice grip is very useful, Outboard tools are convenient, Tools are solid, Lot's of tools,
