    BigRig..... I believe there are 1 or 2 threads floating around these forums somewhere about it. Some said it's crap..... I believe one of the threads actually said it was originally designed by a FF and brought to channellock who then stole the idea and produced it themselves......
    The comments made by me are my opinions only. They DO NOT reflect the opinions of my employer(s). If you have an issue with something I may say, take it up with me, either by posting in the forums, emailing me through my profile, or PMing me through my profile.

    Billy,
    here's the thread discussing the Channelock tool.

    http://forums.firehouse.com/showthread.php?t=100058

    and the tool's main web site

    http://www.therescuetool.com

    Having only looked at pictures of both on the 'net - for my money I'd rather have one of these instead - the only thing it lacks is an actual cutter (but I have a suggestion for the MFG on how to fix that - just want to tinker a bit more before I pass it along to him).
