Father’s Day Gift Idea: CHANNELLOCK Pliers {Giveaway}

This post is the opinion of Beth of the Experimental Mommy. While a sample was received to facilitate this review, all opinions remain 100% mine.

Between owning our own home and having children, we are constantly fixing things and putting them together. Pliers are an essential piece of any tool chest and  according to the men in my family, it can’t just be any old pliers.

CHANNELLOCK is a family business with more than 125 years of experience, and they are committed to making the best tools possible. For generations fathers and grandfathers have been teaching their children and grandchildren the importance of a good tool and CHANNELLOCK is on the top of that list.  All CHANNELLOCK pliers use high carbon steel to which they apply an electronic coating for rust protection while the cutting edges are laser heat-treated so your pliers will last a lifetime.

With Father’s Day fast approaching, CHANNELLOCK pliers make the perfect gift! My husband was so excited when we received the package. As soon as he picked up the pliers he could see how sturdy they were and said he understood how these could last him a lifetime. He also noticed the blue comfort grips and the side cutter.

Earlier that day, my son bent the metal part of his glasses so it was time to put the Long Nose E326 XTL Pliers  to the test and they worked perfectly. I think he will be walking around my house looking for things to fix for the next few days.  Also, my husband is rewiring our house for internet connection so he gave the E 336 ELT Diagonal Cutting Pliers a try.  He said the blade was extremely sharp and cut through the wire like butter. I think he liked his early Father’s Day gift!
