I still have the first pair of 420 Channel-Lock, that I bought new in 1957 when I started work in the pipe trades.

We used them a lot as an electrician. for screwing conduit together.
I bought a pair of curved jaw 420 thinking that they would grip the pipe better than straight jaws.

Well the two curved jaws would never both line up on the conduit/pipe at the same time. The two haves of the Channel-Lock's used a bolt to fasten together.

Rather that consider them useless, I decided to buy a pair of straight jaw 420's and switch haves. I bought a new pair. When I opened the box, to find that Channel-Lock had gone to a rivet for the pin.

Some time latter I found a guy with a pair straight jaw 420's with a bolt for the pin. I traded him. and now have 2 pair 1 with the curved on top, and the other on the bottom. They both work well.
