If you don’t have a pair of Channellock pliers in your toolbox, you’re missing out on one of the most universal, durable, made-in-America tools every DIYer needs. The Griplock tongue and groove plier is our favorite because of its unique design. The offset head provides you with plenty of leverage even in tight or awkward spaces, and the jaw is able to grip round objects such as pipes better than traditional pliers. You’ll find so many uses for these pliers around your house!
With seven measuring modes and dust- and water-safe construction, the Empire Digital Box Level is the perfect gift idea and will help DIYers achieve sturdy and level construction every time. And it has four power-save modes, surface grippers and a display that’s easy-to-read.
