Thanks Sweatysock - ordered x 2

Wonder why they're referring to them as pliers when they're quite clearly mole wrenches...

Good price for something that I would class as a disposable tool. Cheap weak metal / teeth but did the job I used them for now used to just hold stuff

Shambles

Because they are not "Mole wrenches" they are Draper locking pliers. Their design is very much like "Mole Self Grip" locking pliers, but Mole ain't no more AIUI, lost onto the scrapheap of late 20th century British engineering companies presumably.

As to whether these are any good, well if they are like the Draper ones I bought a few years ago when I had to change a very reluctant worn out track rod end, then they will be so-so. Not chocolate but not very strong. I seem to recall it being pretty much impossible to find a set of good self locking pliers locally and got better results with a very worn ancient pair, possibly actually Mole, than the Drapers. That said it was a real pig of a job and the Drapers were OK.
