Channelock began its journey over a century ago in 1886 when Mr. George B. DeArment made handmade tools in a small factory in Evansburg, PA. He would sell these tools from his wagon, and it turned into a flourishing small business called Champion Bolt and Clipper Company. In 1933, the company got its current name ‘Channellock’ after the chief engineer Howard Manning introduced a tongue and groove, slip-joint style pliers. These pliers were widely popular as the name Channellock. The company was granted its trademark protection in 1935 and is successfully run by the fifth generation of the DeArment family. It employs more than 350 associates. The company widely exports its products to customers in over 45 countries.
