Ready for big jobs, the Channellock BigAzz 20-1/4-inch Straight Jaw Tongue and Groove Plier (model 480) is perfect for heavy industrial use such as pipe fitting, well and rig maintenance and heavy machinery repair. More than offering just brute strength, the 480 boasts an impressive list of safety features. Jobs requiring high leverage are no problem, as reinforcing ridges on the front and back of the tongue and groove channels greatly enhance this massive tool’s strength and resistance to stress breakage.
The 20-1/4-inch tongue and groove plier is made from durable high carbon, drop-forged steel, polished to perfection and offering a massive 5-1/2-inch jaw capacity. Its 12 non-slip, undercut adjustment channels offer a versatile range of adjustments for virtually every field application. The jaws of this aggressive tool feature right-angled teeth, providing gripping power in all directions.
The PermaLock fastener eliminates nut and bolt failure common to other plier designs. It's completed by Channellock's iconic blue handle, which is both comfortable in your hand and easy to spot in your tool bag.

Founded in 1886, Channellock is a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality pliers and assorted hand tools. Now run by the fifth generation of the DeArment family, Channellock tools reflect a tradition of dedication to excellence maintained for well over a century. Over the years, Channellock has obtained several patents including one in 1965 for the conical surface created on the cam side of the pliers when undercut and another in 1984 for the PermaLock fastener found in its Tongue and Groove Pliers. Channellock still manufactures more than 120 different sizes and types of pliers and hand tools at its facilities in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

The only knock is that they have some sharp and seemingly unfinished edges. Most older tools have all the sharp edges removed. Too bad they now cut corners on the finished feel.
Still a great and highly recommended product.
That said, when the price dropped into silly cheap range, I had to have them. They are an awesome showpiece on any pegboard and who knows, one day I might need them to really reef on something. If you're a true Channelllock fan, I highly encourage you to pick these up when the price is right, as they're not typically sold in brick and mortar locations. Besides, when the day comes that you actually need these babies, you'll have them at the ready.
