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.

Have to bump up my rating to 5 stars. These last few weeks have mostly worked with thin wires (18-22 gauge) and my boss' Klein crimper would fail in this area by giving weak crimps (even though I'd fold the wire into 2 or 4), however this Channellock crimper succeeded every time!!! The crimp area itself actually looks a little weird, like its about to fall apart, but the crimp holds dead on. Very impressive!
ADVICE ON CRIMPING SMALL INSULATED TERMINALS: If you're trying to crimp small insulated terminals (particularly the ones from Japan), you'll notice that the dedicated "Ins" crimp area will give weak crimp because its too big to squeeze properly, and if you try to use the "Non-Ins" tooth, you'll cut right through the insulation. So I suggest putting the terminal all the way past the "Non-Ins" crimping area, right where the jaws of the pliers meet. You'll get nice and strong crimps on those tiny insulated terminals.
The Channellock crimper has a very precise construction with no side play at all, yet the handles move almost entirely frictionless for effortless action.
The leverage afforded by the length of the handles and the distance from the pivot to the crimp area allows you to very easily apply the force necessary with little effort.
This tool is best used for the non insulated terminal; while it can also be used for the insulated type terminals, the profile across the insulated crimps is flat and spreads the crimp area over a whole terminal. For insulated terminals, it'd be better to use crimpers with dedicated insulated terminal dies, with two crimp areas with an open section in the middle.
The cutter on the Channellock works very well, cutting copper and aluminum wire gauges down to the smallest gauge easily. The cutting action is an anvil type rather than a bypass type. Don't abuse it by cutting steel wires and it'll last. The handles and jaws are able to open up very wide so if you do somehow mess up the cutting edges, you should be able to resharpen them.
This tool is not intended for stripping wires, so I'd recommend getting a separate wire stripper for the purpose instead of trying to use the cutter, you'll have much better results.
When crimping terminals, the orientation of the terminal should be placed so that the split part of the lug is positioned against a flat portion of the crimping die. This will ensure the opening doesn't separate when the crimping pressure is applied. With small terminals, put the split at 45 degrees so it faces the flat area.Read more ›
As an added bonus, they are MADE IN THE USA !! I'm happy to support an American company putting my neighbors to work producing an excellent product!
