Thanks for posting that ad.
I've had a pair of those pliers for many years, and used them for a lot of tasks, but never thought of using them for square nuts (I usually use an open-end wrench or 8-point socket).

Try a 12 point socket on square nuts. They used to make sockets for square nuts. Those nuts are good for welding onto something when you need threads attached.

Daddy ALWAYS had a pair in the tool box. Believe the name was "Quik Snip"

That's a useful tool to have around. Pretty neat that you have an advert for it.

They were very popular around here. They are comon at garage sales. Most old tool boxes had them. I've got a couple of pair but usually just use a left handed metric adjustable wrench. The parallel jaws can be handy in a number of situations. Good Luck, Rick

I've always used channelloks for square nuts but as boyscout said the universal metric wrench works good too. If all else fails an open end wrench will also work.
