No tool box is complete without the 8-inch Channellock 528 Slip Joint Plier — versatile, easy to use, and reliably strong. This plier is built to last with a PermaLock fastener to eliminate nut and bolt failure, a wire cutting shear, and a classic and versatile slip joint design.
Channellock uses high carbon C1080 steel for superior performance on the job, and an electronic coating for ultimate rust prevention. It's completed by Channellock's iconic blue handle, which is both comfortable in your hand and easy to spot in your tool bag.

Founded in 1886, Channellock is a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality pliers and assorted hand tools. Now run by the fifth generation of the DeArment family, Channellock tools reflect a tradition of dedication to excellence maintained for well over a century. Over the years, Channellock has obtained several patents including one in 1965 for the conical surface created on the cam side of the pliers when undercut and another in 1984 for the PermaLock fastener found in its Tongue and Groove Pliers. Channellock still manufactures more than 120 different sizes and types of pliers and hand tools at its facilities in Meadville, Pennsylvania.
