Now, if you are like me you probably think/thought that a slip joint plier is a slip joint plier. I guarantee that if you use this slip joint plier, you will NEVER buy another brand of slip joint plier. Used to think that all of these were run of the mill, but after using this I changed my mentality totally. I was used to using chain-store brand of these, and originally thought that they were just fine.

These pliers will make using them a joy and your hands and wrists will thank you. They are very easy to use and will last you a very long time. I absolutely endorse these pliers, and can recommend them to anyone of any skill level. From novice to professional, these are perfect for everybody. I will be getting these same pliers in various sizes for when I need a different size.

I owned the 6 inch version of these for many years till it recently disappeared so I decided to give this slightly larger set a try. As other reviewers have noted the jaws do appear to be the same size as the smaller set but I do not view that as a problem and in fact I prefer these to my original pair. I've owned many Channellock branded pliers for years and these appear to have the same quality construction as any of the older sets in my box. Well worth the extra $, treat yourself and you wont be disappointed...

Channellock is great product for everyday use - at home or in the field. I purchased these pliers, because the 6 inch model I own was a little too small for certain applications. I suggest that you consider various sizes and types of pliers, as sets, when purchasing - it is alot less expensive that way. One note about quality: I have NEVER had one pair of Channellock pliers develop the "loose and sloppy" joint action after a couple hundered uses (common in the less expensive/lower quality brands). As always, you get what you pay for, and for my money, the Channellock products are worth it. GJM

Good fit and finish, comfortable. These seem to be a higher leverage version of traditional slip joints. The head is a bit smaller and the handle it longer with the rivet being farther forward, giving more leverage but leaving a smaller head to grip and grab with. Not sure about the smaller head thing, thus the 4 stars... will update after use if needed.

Over all I would recommend this item, good quality tool.... slight deviation from "standard" design/format

These are a nice set. Good fit and finish, light in the bag and strong in the hand. As others have pointed out they are more streamlined and have a bit smaller jaw than some alternatives, but based on my experience in using them the steel is also of better quality than similar priced alternatives, so I am not concerned for durability. Only issue might be if you for some reason want a very large gripping area, but I think if that's an issue 8 inch slip joints might not be the proper tool for the job anyway.

Channellock makes excellent tools. Please note, these are the 8" version of the slip joints, which are longer than what most people are used to. The 6.5" version is also available, which is the more common size.

What can I say. It is a Channellock. This is the best pair of pliers you will own. Then, pass it down to your son. It will be the best pair of pliers he will own. Then, pass it down to your grandson. It will be the best pair of pliers he will own. Repeat. Spend a few extra bucks and get a quality made in the USA tool that will last for generations, don't get cheap with a pair of throw-away pliers.

For even a basic tool, this is awesome. You would be surprised how much you can mess up a simple set up pliers. These have a great grip, exact claws and good action. You can expand them for a wider grip too if needed. Great color and weight. Last pliers you'll ever need if you treat them right.
