Channellock Inc. has announced the launch of SpeedGrip, an all-new family of American-made tongue and groove pliers that include a fast-adjusting feature and patent-pending crosshatch teeth. This is the newest product line from CHANNELLOCK. The line of push-button tongue and groove pliers are 100 percent made and manufactured in the United States with die-forged high carbon U.S. steel to stand the test of time. SpeedGrip prevents adjustment slippage by locking into strong channels at the push of a button, making it twice as fast with more adjustments than standard tongue and groove pliers.
This tool is designed to stay in place until the adjustment button is engaged, preventing the need for constant re-adjustments. Precise, robotic laser heat-treating makes the patent-pending crosshatch teeth more durable, and provides a stronger grip with more points of contact for superior job performance. The reaming feature on the top of the tool is made for deburring pipes easily. With CHANNELLOCK BLUE no-slip comfort grips, these pliers are designed for ultimate control and ease hand fatigue. SpeedGrip features a limited lifetime warranty and is available in three sizes and a combo pack: 428X (8-inch), 430X (10-inch), 440X (12-inch); and GS-IX featuring the 428X and 430X.
