125th Anniversary Channellock Tool Roll Gift Set

Recently I received the Channellock Tool Roll No. 3 for review and the timing could not be better. It was only a few days before I had the perfect repair to test my new set on. After the kids' bath one night the bathtub would not drain.

To fix this issue I need to use a pipe snake, but in order to do that I needed to remove some pipe end caps to gain access behind my tub. The two sizes of adjustable tongue and groove pliers in the Channellock Tool Roll were perfect for that task. The work area was tight and I did not have much leverage, but the pliers worked just fine. The no-slip grips worked perfectly even with my wet hands.

It was nice to have most of the tools I needed for the job in one place, I did not need to run back and forth to try different tools, they were right there in one place.

Another tool that came in handy in a hurry was the Slip Joint Plier. A few days ago I was moving the cushions on the couch and noticed something pointy coming through the fabric right where your lower back would be if the cushions were out of place. After looking more closely it was a protruding nail! My kids play all over that couch.  It is an absolute miracle they have not cut themselves wide open on that nail. I grabbed the slip joint pliers and pulled it right out, they were the perfect tool for the job.

This set contains the following pieces:
  • 430 tongue and groove plier
  • 420 tongue and groove plier
  • 337 cutting plier
  • 3017 long nose plier
  • 526 slip joint plier
  • 5-pocket tool roll with tie-closure

The Channellock Tool Roll No. 3 was a great addition to my tool collection. Everything I need in a compact roll that I can throw in a drawer to keep handy. Great product!
