Channellock® Delivers Full-Size Gripping Power in Pocket-Sized Pliers



New 6.5" 412 V-Jaw Plier Perfect Size for Smaller Jobs

MEADVILLE, Pa. - The new 6.5" 412 V-Jaw tongue and groove plier from Channellock, Inc., is the latest from the company known worldwide for manufacturing quality pliers. This new tool offers professionals and DIYers the same quality design and right-angle, maximum-bite grip as the other CHANNELLOCK® V-Jaw pliers - only in a more compact frame, making it easier to work with smaller piping and tubing.

"Product innovation and quality manufacturing are our top priorities," notes Ryan DeArment, vice president of sales and marketing at Channellock, Inc. "The development of the 6.5" V-Jaw plier was a direct response to feedback from trade professionals who said that a smaller plier would be helpful when working with smaller materials."

Manufactured in Meadville, Pa., the 6.5" V-Jaw plier offers the same high quality and performance as the rest of the line but is designed to allow access to smaller spaces and provide a better fit for smaller pipes. Perfect for plumbers, HVAC contractors, electricians and DIYers, the 6.5" V-Jaw plier enables more points of contact on smaller round stock and tubing, and the right-angle teeth grip in all directions for maximum bite and minimum wear.

Further enhancing its performance is the undercut tongue-and-groove design of the 6.5" V-Jaw plier, which assures no slip jaw action. Additionally, its reinforced edge minimizes stress breakage, and the PermaLock® fastener eliminates nut and bolt failures. True of all CHANNELLOCK® pliers, the 6.5" V-Jaw plier is made from high-carbon C1080 steel for superior quality and performance, contains an electronic coating for rust prevention and includes the signature CHANNELLOCK BLUE® comfort grips.

The 6.5" V-Jaw plier will be available for purchase on January 4, 2010.
