    Hand Tools?

    These are "press tools" in Viega's terminology used for pex. You can order jaws, that fit the Ridgid ProPress guns that are used to "press" sleeves on the pex fittings if you want.

    Assuming this is what your referring to, the handles are colored to indicate the size the press/crimp. The sizes are 3/8 , 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, and 1. Press Jaws are available for 11/4 & 11/2 pex fittings.

    Viega Makes the Propress tools and Ridgid is the distributor. They needed a well known name and distribution system when they were introduced in the USA
