Hardworking Pliers Made By Harder Working Americans

Channellock, Inc. started making our high quality hand tools back in 1886. 131 years later, we have over 300 dedicated associates who manufacture more than 120 different sizes and types of pliers in Meadville, PA, USA. We pay attention to every detail so we can provide tools that don’t just finish the job, but defeat the job - plain and simple. Is it the easiest way? Probably not. But to us, American manufacturing is the right way.
