  • Christmas Shopping In June

    While at my local hardware store today, I stumbled upon their monthly add.

    A gift pack that includes a Channelock 426 6 1/2" slip joint plier along with a Lockback knife. Regularly priced at $24.99 on special for $7.99


    so after purchasing 3 off the shelf, i hade them order 4 more cases of them.

    So if you're on my naughty or nice list, you already know what Santa Rick is bringing

      ok, that still leaves me with 43 sets, since you're turning a gift horse down.

      my brother in law got me a pair of knipex last year for the holidays, yes they are very nice and very spendy. smooth jaw 10" great for my nozzles and hose assy.

        Never officially, but I showed you mine, you can show me yours.

        Tools, not your tool.

      Spendy? You've looking at something that they're asking $26 for that you happened to get on closeout for a good price, nothing wrong with that. But I think $26 is crazy high for a pair of 6'' Channellocks and a folding razorknife. The pliers alone are worth what your paid, $8. The two items to me are worth $10 or maybe $12 tops.

      Unless you're selling them on Amazon, then you can hope to catch some unsuspecting person who will pay your asking price of $77 WITHOUT the razor knife ! !

      Knipex pliers grip nicely, have a comfortable grip, and the jaws are a little narrower than Channellocks so they fit into tight spaces that Channellocks won't.

      The Channellock Griplock pliers are similar in design to the Knipex Cobra.

        I was in the crawl space hooking up the drain on the shower I added to the half bath at mmy place in the mountains last fall and stumbled upon a pair on Knipex 10"ers I'd left down there 15 years ago. No rush, good as new.

          Question is, did you remember where you left them 15 years ago?

          no rust, not even rat pee?

            This is certainly a great idea and it will be useful too.
