Channellock VJ-1 Tool Gift Set: Review and Giveaway

hypothesis The VJ-1 Tool Gift Set from Channellock will make a great gift for my husband for Father’s Day because he has been needing a few tools to complete an outdoor project.

materials

One VJ-1 tool gift set including two popular tongue and groove pliers (422 and 412) and a procrastinated outdoor project.  About Channellock:

channellock “The bright CHANNELLOCK BLUE® Gripped tools are standard equipment in the tool belts, buckets and tool boxes of professional electricians, plumbers and mechanics all over the world. This is quality they know they can count on because any tool with CHANNELLOCK® on it is made to the highest standards as the pliers made here in Meadville, Pennsylvania since 1886.”

results Lots of products we receive here at Experimental Mommy are for the kids, so my husband and I love when we get a chance to review products for ourselves!  Channellock was nice enough to send my husband the VJ-1 Tool Gift Set which includes the following from the press release:

Two popular tongue & groove pliers, the 422 and the 412.The 412 V-Jaw Plier is the newest to the Channellock line — the perfect size for smaller jobs at 6.5 inches. Handy dads (and moms) will go nuts for this new tool, which is designed for access to smaller spaces. During the product launch, several DIY-savvy dads found an endless list of uses for the 412. And the 422 is a 9.5-inch V-Jaw tongue & groove plier, which completes the perfect set of tools for any Father.

VJ-1 My husband, being the handy one in the house, was the first to open the package and dive into finding project to use his new toys.  We purchased a swing set for our daughters last summer and they have enjoyed it!  However, we needed to make some adjustments to add accessories this year.  In order to install a two person glider on the swingset, my hubby used the 412 pliers to hold several nuts in place while driving a bolt with a 24 volt impact driver.  Even though he already knew the quality provided by Channellock, he was surprised that the smaller pliers did not slip given the large amount of torque supplied by the impact driver.

hypothesis

My husband absolutely loved the VJ-1 Tool Gift Set supplied by Channellock!  The pliers provided unlimited uses for project around the house and outdoors.  My husband loves the Channellock brand and found that these tools were no different.
