Founded in 1886, Channellock has been making pliers and assorted tools for hard-working tradespeople for over 130 years. Since then, they now manufacture more than 140 types of pliers and employ over 350 hard-working Americans while supporting American manufacturing. Most of their pliers are made using 100 % US steel and laser hardened for the ultimate strength that will last a lifetime.

Note – some Channellock tools are not made in the USA, like their vise grip locking pliers, which are made by a third-party in Spain.
