Does this tool exist? If so, what's it called?

I'm looking for something like C-clamp pliers, but I don't want locking ones like Vice-Grips. I need about a 4 inch wide opening, and I'd like the narrowist bite end possible (like a narrow depth but kind of wide duckbill), because I'm only trying to pry closed about a 1/8" lip.

Yeah, I could work around it with other pliers, but I'm wondering if such a beast exists. Thanks.

I don't know of any that DON'T lock (a la the vice grips). I guess the closest thing I could think of is a good size set of channel locks.

Maybe something like these?

That set is expensive, but look around the site for other small tools.

Just set the visegrip type devise too tight to lock and you can just use it as a regular plier function.

And I'm realizing I don't think I reallyneed the wide opening jaws, so a more conventional duckbill/flat nose pliers may do the trick.

I had a college roommate that worked in a hardware store in HS and some summers and her knew EVERYTHING hardware related. What a valuable resource to have around! He ALWAYS had the answer to these questions.

Sounds like something to be used by a sheet metal person. I've seen welding clamps that look like that but they are all locking plier based. Because nobody wants hot metal to slide around.
