We're not just making pliers—we're making a statement. We take pride in our craft and our commitment to American manufacturing. We embrace hard work and the trades pros who keep our country running. We value quality and never take shortcuts. It's not the easy way. It's the CHANNELLOCK® Way.
Inspiration behind Channellock Way
We pioneered the original Tongue & Groove Pliers for the hardworking Americans who built our country—the same men and women we supply today. From the steel to the packaging, every pair of our pliers is made right here in the U.S.A. It's how we've done things since 1886 and we're not about to stop now.
Forged from 100% U.S. steel and laser-hardened for ultimate strength.
Rigorously tested to make sure they work as hard as you do.
Our processes aren't the easiest or the cheapest, but that's what it takes to make our pliers legendary.
INSPIRED BY THE TRADES
Since 1886, CHANNELLOCK® has been continuously engineering specialty pliers to meet the ever-changing needs of the skilled tradespeople who rely on them.
The perfect embodiment of American grit, ingenuity and resilience, these hardworking tradesmen and women don’t just do things the CHANNELLOCK® Way—they’re the inspiration behind it.
