Features and benefits 

Designed to meet the ever-changing demands of America’s trades pros, the SpeedGrip Tongue & Groove Pliers combine the dependability of Channellock's legacy Tongue & Groove Pliers with a push button for fast and easy adjustments that lock into place. Forged from high-carbon U.S. steel and featuring laser heat-treated crosshatch teeth, the pliers are built for maximum strength and grip 2.5 times better than traditional tongue and groove-style pliers.  


SpeedGrip Tongue & Groove Pliers were created to give tradespeople the fast-acting, push-button style of pliers they were asking for. 

Manufacturing/engineering specifications 

The pliers are 100 percent made in Meadville, Pennsylvania using high-carbon U.S. steel.
