CHANNELLOCK® GL10 9.5 Inch GripLock® Pliers
Product Review (submitted on April 26, 2013):
As a HVAC technician for over 15 years one thing that was ALWAYS in all my tool boxes were a standard set of Channel Lock pliers. I came across these offset pliers about 5 years ago by accident. I was on a large construction site doing the installs of over 160 split systems. As I was walking to the port-o-jon I looked on the dirt floor and found a set of these offset pliers. I picked up those pliers and put them to use for over 5 years. I came to appreciate there lighter design over the standard design. I also noticed I was able to get into awkward angles because of there offset. Well one day I accidently left them on a job, so I broke out the old Channel Lock pliers I had put away for 5 years since finding this pair. At that point I realized how practical the offset pair of Channel Lock pliers were to me and my trade. I went online and searched for them, because Home Depot nor Lowes carried them. I found them cheaper on this site than other ones, and ordered 2 pairs. I ordered the 12", and the 9.5" one's. If you use regular Channel Lock pliers on a daily basis, try these. You will love the durability and design.
