ChannelLock has been creating tools since 1886 that was founded George B. Dearment and has been family run since then. The name ChannelLock came from the concept of multi-position, tongue and groove, slip joint style pliers that were developed by the chief engineer at the time, Howard Manning. Today they continue to develop a wide variety of tools including: nippers, pinchers, wreches, hammers, pliers, and more. Browse through our selection of ChannelLock tools for your applications.

What are the different type of ChannelLock pliers?

  • Slip Joint Pliers - have a square head and are adjustable so that the size of the pliers can change depending on your application.
  • Needle Nose Pliers - are generally used for getting small items in hard to reach places. These pliers can bend wires and work with small objects.
  • Cutting Pliers - the jaws of these pliers do not have grips like other pliers and are generally used for cutting fence, wires, and more.
  • Oil Filter Pliers - the jaws are at a right angle so that they will provide a firm grip and can be used to tighten or remove nuts and bolts.
