a first jaw and a second jaw, movable towards and away from each other, and
at least one safety hook interposed between said first jaw and said second jaw provided with a retaining tooth inserted into a groove defined in a shank of a tool, wherein on an inner side of said second jaw facing the first jaw there are a plurality of thrust surfaces cooperating with, while resting slidingly against, a same number of corresponding rest surfaces on an outer side of the safety hook, said thrust surfaces and said rest surfaces lying substantially parallel along corresponding thrust planes sloping in a direction to the first jaw by an angle (α) of between 30° and 60° with respect to a vertical plane, said thrust planes being parallel to and staggered from one another along a substantially vertical direction.
