Give your Dad Channellock for 

Father’s Day 


That's a whole bunch of pliers...

I could really use these. When I was growing up back on the 'farm,' (you know that place where you have to walk 3 miles in the snow each day to go to school), we counted on Channellock 'water pump pliers,' (the two on the left), when we irrigated our trees. Having a pair of these all around pliers saved me from having to walk back to the house - about a quarter of a mile away, (not uphill, no snow this time), to get a single purpose tool. Many's the time I fixed sprinklers and sprinkler pipes with my trusty Channellock 'water pump pliers.'

By the way, I have no idea why they were called 'water pump pliers'...
