Has been this price for a long time now, as an response to Home Depot selling it for the same price.

I bought the same from HD last year.
This is the best tool I've ever had.

Thanks for the posts. Convinced me to order. There was a 12 inch version in the wearhouse that also came to $57 after the 20% off. So bought that.

Who uses these for what?
The teeth don't look serrated.
I use my channel locks for 3/8 rod mostly.

These look overpriced.
When i lost my 10 inch Channel brand pliers I bought the Irwin sliding pliers.
Pretty happy with them for 15 bucks.
Plus won't cry if they get lost or if I forget them up in the t bar somewhere.

Have one for over 3 years. You can throw away all your monkey wrenches after getting this. Great for hooking up pipes and drains.

They are smooth and won't damage the nut you are turning. You use them everywhere you use adjustable wrench, except they are much faster since they feel almost like ratcheting. There's Knipex kobra wrenches that's more comparable to channel lock. While channel lock is good quality I still manage to damage the jaws when loosening a rusted on oxygen sensor. The material on Kobra is much harder and the jaw is much more aggressive and provides more holding power.

Do you need them? probably no, but they will sure make your job easier.

This is good for brass fittings, provides a good grip, squeezes the fitting. Bought from Home Depot for this price awhile back, use it regularly for chiller work, great tool.

Yep, this is just price matching home depot. I got this last year with $10 off first time email subscription coupon from home depot.

Knipex's channel lock equivalent is the Knipex alligators, 2x the price, and the much better product... the Knipex Kobra, is 2.5/3x the price of channellock. Expensive? Sure. Are these tools worth it? Every pesos.

These pliers wrench, OTOH, is miles better as this is a combination of an adjustable crescent wrench and a vise grip at the same time, and it doesn't mar your fasteners unlike channel locks or the kobras. Once you set your pliers wrench to size, you simply turn the direction using the fixed handle, and you don't have to squeeze both handles together, it's an ingenious design. My toolbox no longer has a crescent wrench or a vise grip thanks to this and the kobras.
