What to give the man who has everything? For my husband’s birthday this year, he requested a ginormous tool box. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if he had a need for it, but it made him tremendously happy. He actually has been using the tool box more than I thought he would, so I am thrilled to help him fill the box with quality tools. One of the companies that come to mind when I think of quality tools for the home is Channellock. Are you familiar with the brand?
“Founded in 1886, Channellock, Inc. is a worldwide leader in the manufacture of high-quality pliers and assorted hand tools. Based out of Meadville, Pa., the company is currently run by the fifth generation of the DeArment family. Channellock, Inc. manufactures more than 120 different sizes and types of pliers and hand tools, and all CHANNELLOCK® pliers are made in the Meadville plants.”
Last year, he was fortunate enough to test out the Channellock VJ-1 Tool Gift Set and could not have been happier with the product. This Father’s Day, in honor of Channellock’s 125th Anniversary, he couldn’t wait to test the Tool Roll No. 3! About the product:
“From plumbing projects to auto repair, Tool Roll No. 3 includes five pliers to help homeowners accomplish a variety of home improvement projects. All of the pliers in this set are fiercely made in Meadville, Pa. The tool roll includes: 430 tongue and groove plier, 420 tongue and groove plier, 337 cutting plier, 3017 long nose plier and a 526 slip joint plier.”
My first impression of the set (albeit from a novice handy-woman) was that it was neatly put together and easy to store. The tools, which should be a standard in every household, are easy grab when an urgent or do-it-yourself project arises. Sometimes portability is key! My husband decided he would try his handyman skills with his new Channellock Tool Roll by installing a new ceiling fan in my daughter’s room. He was impressed by the comfortable non-slip grip which made it easy to work on a fan above his head!
One lucky winner will receive a Channellock Tool Roll No. 3 (ARV $78)! To celebrate the 125th Anniversary, Channellock will engrave the winner’s tools with “1886-2011 — 125 Years Strong.”
