Channellock® Introduces 449 High-Leverage Cutting Plier
Latest Addition to High-Leverage Line Delivers More Power, Greater Reach
MEADVILLE, Pa. - Channellock, Inc., the company known worldwide for manufacturing quality pliers, is giving professionals and DIYers more cutting power and greater reach with the introduction of the new 449 High-Leverage Cutting Plier.
Fusing the high-performance designs of its traditional cutting pliers and high-leverage linemen's pliers, CHANNELLOCK® developed the 449 High-Leverage Cutting Plier for those jobs that require the reach of a long plier and the superior slicing and shearing performance of a traditional cutting plier.
The 449's handles are a full two inches longer than the original 447 Cutting Plier and equipped with signature CHANNELLOCK BLUE® comfort grips. This extension results in greater reach and easier access into tight spaces and deep-pocket areas. And because it's a high-leverage plier, cutting through high-tensile strength wire, fish tape, nails and screws is easy and fast.
"Our commitment to developing innovative tools continues with the 449," said Ryan DeArment, vice president of sales and marketing at Channellock, Inc. "At CHANNELLOCK®, we are always challenging ourselves to manufacture the tools necessary to keep America working."
With a measurement of 9.54 inches in length, a cutting edge of 1.02 inches, and weight of less than one pound, the 449 High-Leverage Cutting Plier delivers performance without unnecessary bulk. Its forged, convex head gives users better side-to-side rocking ability for cutting, while laser heat-treated, knife-and-anvil style cutting edges ensure precise, clean cuts and a superior cutting edge life. And, because it's drop-forged from high-carbon C1080 steel and features electronic coating for rust prevention, the 449 offers American-made quality that will last for years.
