[Home Depot] Princess Auto Channellocks 40% off (price match with Home Depot for -10%)

Channellocks Princess Auto up to 40% off, April 13 to 25.

Boss say Channellocks pliers are good and will go price match some with Home Depot. Princess Auto not easy to go for us.

Canadian Tire will have sale, but not too many on sale and price is crazy at Canadian Tire.

If need set, Amazon is better for sets. Set not the big size.

So many sizes...can anyone recommend a general use size? I’m thinking plumbing since I have wrenches for small sizes.

Might just go for the biggest one.

Our boys say one of each 10" + 12" straight jaw is good, sometime you need 2.

Unfortunately they don’t carry the biggest one.

I have the model 460 (16”) but I kind of covet the 480 (20”).

There's a review on PA saying they're not strong either though.

I also saw that there is a 16.5 inch as well:

If I want one to have for around the house work should I go for the biggest one or will it be ineffective for smaller jobs?

Anyone have a suggestion on the best size for household use?

I bought these at Canadian tire a while ago. First pair the tip on one side broke but after exchanging them I've abused the replacement set worse with no breakage.

I think maybe they occasionally have bad sets make it through QC. Lifetime warranty solves that though :P

Might order another pair for my to go toolbag.

I have both. I picked up the 480 when they were on sale for 1/2 off on Amazon a few years back. I've yet to find a good use for them, but every time I pick them up I laugh, they're just so ridiculous.

I use the 10" the most. 12" for slightly larger things. Very rarely use the 16".

Considering these are sketchy tools of questionable quality, they seem quite pricey.

I'd rather wait for a sale on a known brand than pay almost the same for a mainland mystery tool.

Because an off brand made of solid steel is going to break? I bought a set of pliers cheaper than one unit's sale price on these.

For the non-tradesman homeowner, this pricing for a name brand is overkill.
