The Pipe Vise Story

As former tradesmen, the founders of Pipe Vise™ know firsthand how demanding the field can be. After years of struggling with two pipe wrenches, the father/son team knew there had to be a better way. They started by manufacturing one product – the Bigfoot – which eliminated fumbling and chewed up fittings, a problem faced by so many in the trade for years: The Bigfoot almost literally offered a much needed third hand.

With the success of the Bigfoot, the Texas-based company expanded their product line by continuing to manufacture other innovative portable pipe vises and pipe wrenches. The Pipe Vise™ brand gained a significant trade following on social media for its innovation and relentless dedication to high quality. Pipe Vise™ has quickly become a brand that plumbers and mechanical contractors trust for the toughest jobs.
