Channellock, Inc. started making our high quality hand tools back in 1886. 133 years later, we have over 350 dedicated associates who manufacture more than 75 different sizes and types of pliers in Meadville, PA, USA. We pay attention to every detail so we can provide pliers that don’t just finish the job, but defeat the job—plain and simple. Is it the easiest way? Probably not. But it’s the right way when it comes to making our pliers.
