Work holding can be a difficult job and a dangerous one if your stock is not secure. There are no blacksmith tongs that will be totally universal. Tongs with the "universal" in the name generally indicate MORE versatility. Special blacksmith tongs and blacksmith pliers designed for holding certain sizes and shapes will always be the safest option, such as scrolling tongs and pliers. As a general rule tongs are not meant to be left on the stock while in the fire. Tongs that get hot enough to show color will likely lose their shape. There are always some processes that leaving tongs on the stock is helpful, but if there is another way than it is recommended. Therefore tong rings or tong locks should not be the norm. The amount of holding power a tong has is directly related to the length of the reins versus the length of the jaw or bit. Shorter jaws and longer reins give better grip.
