FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

AMERICAN-MADE CHANNELLOCK® E SERIES™ OFFERS SLEEK ALTERNATIVE TO TRADITIONAL PLIERS WITHOUT COMPROMISING QUALITY, PERFORMANCE 

MEADVILLE, Pa. (May 7, 2013) – Channellock Inc. introduces the E Series, a line of combination, long nose and diagonal cutting pliers with an entirely new, sleeker design than the manufacturer’s traditional pliers. The E Seriesis manufactured to the same quality standards as all CHANNELLOCK® pliers in Meadville, Pa., from North American high-carbon C1080 steel.

“CHANNELLOCK fans and tool enthusiasts always tell us, whether it’s online or on the tradeshow floor, that they want something new; the E Series is our answer,” said Ryan DeArment, vice president of sales and marketing at Channellock Inc. “Now it’s more of a stylistic choice between this new line and our traditional line of pliers, and we’re still making both in America.”

Each of the 18 new pliers in the E Series line is manufactured with Xtreme Leverage Technology (XLT).  Exclusive to CHANNELLOCK®, XLTpositions the plier rivet closer to the plier head so that considerably less force is required to make clean, accurate cuts.

Additionally, each E Series plier includes the same quality features that generations of CHANNELLOCK® users have come to expect: knife-and-anvil cutting edges to ensure proper cutting edge alignment and clean cuts; cross-hatched jaws for improved grip; laser-heat treated cutting edges for extended durability; and a choice of CHANNELLOCK BLUE® comfort grips or CODE BLUE® grips for secure and comfortable gripping power.

“We designed these new pliers with precision and space limitations in mind, and believe they will be ideal for machinists, aerospace technicians, engineers and auto mechanics, not to mention DIYers who are looking for pliers with a smaller profile for work around the house,” added DeArment.

The new CHANNELLOCK® E Series is available at www.channellock.com/e-series.aspx and hardware retailers nationwide.
