if you ever get a chance use a pair of douglas pliers,youll throw all those channel locks in the trash. I use to work as a plumber,the old boy i worked with would take a new pair of channel locks and snap the jaws right off them with one hand. the supply house we bought a lot of our stuff at decided they would sell channel locks once, he raised cain saying they werent worth anything. they bet him he couldnt break a pair. after the third set they took them off the shelf and started selling douglas again.ive personally broken i cant say how many channel locks, never broke a pair of douglas pliers. of course channel locks are better than 99% of them out there.

I don't know how a plumber can break them by hand when I didn't break them with a maul. I have to say it sounds like a plumber's tale...LOL
