So, I have been stuck trying to close the number 2 COC gripper forever! I found an article online(I forget where now) that suggested cutting off the ends of the handles(about 1/4") drilling holes and tapping the hole in the handle that is still part of the gripper. Then you add washers to the grippers and make the handles longer. This increases your leverage although it is a pain to get them in position. I added enough washers so that i was barely able to close it. Over time, you take out washers until you are at the original length. Hopefully this works. I will try to get some pics of the finished product soon.
