**Summary:**Suppose that $1\leq p<\infty$, and $G$ is a locally compact abelian group with dual group $\Gamma$. Denote by $\mpw$ the space of weak type $(p,p)$ multipliers for $L^p(G)$. We show that the injection mapping of $\mpw$ into $L^{\infty}(\Gamma)$ is bounded. This affords a short proof that $\mpw$ is complete with respect to the weak type $(p,p)$ multiplier norm. When $1<p<\infty$, the completeness of $\mpw$ is further demonstrated by characterizing the transforms of the weak type $(p,p)$ multipliers as the translation-invariant continuous linear mappings of $L^p(G)$ into the weak $L^p$ space of $G$. This result permits $\mpw$ to be supplied with a Banach space structure when $1<p<\infty$.
