MEADVILLE, PA. – Channellock, Inc., Insulated Pliers are designed for electricians and other professionals who need high-quality OSHA-compliant pliers for safety on the job.

“Our insulated pliers feature precision-machined knife-and-anvil style cutting edges to ensure perfect mating and superior cutting edge life,” said Ryan DeArment, vice president of sales and marketing at Channellock, Inc. “The cutting edges are also laser heat-treated to last longer. These new insulated pliers are made with high carbon U.S. steel for superior performance on the job, and have an ultimate rust-preventive coating.”

The new insulated plier line includes four tools:

  • 8” Long Nose Plier with a long, streamlined design for precision handling, and XLTTM Xtreme Leverage Technology to enable cutting with considerably less force than traditional high-leverage pliers. The pipe grip design will accommodate many shapes and the crosshatch teeth provide a tighter grip.
  • 7” and 8” Diagonal Cutters featuring strong lap joint construction and a durable diagonal cutting-edge design. The 8” Diagonal Cutter also features XLTTM technology to improve cutting performance and reduce hand fatigue.
  • 8” Combination Plier featuring XLTTM technology, crosshatch teeth for a tighter grip and a pipe grip design to accommodate many shapes.

The insulation is impact resistant, flame retardant and the entire product line complies with IEC 60900-2012, ASTM F1505-16 and NFPA 70E standards. They are tested to 10,000 VAC and rated for 1,000 VAC when working on live parts.
