    The 480 Channellocks are big enough to do the job. I have a GE whole house water filter system that has a filter that needs to be changed periodically. I always have had a hard time unscrewing the housing with the smaller Channellocks. The last time I put in a new filter I had to over tighten the housing and I was unable to unscrew the housing. I was faced with calling a plumber or finding this tool. I did not know that this size was available until I googled and found this big boy.

    These Channellock 480 Big Azz pliers are an excellent product. Good sharp teeth, big physical size. For that big thing you need to grab that can be as big as 5″ this tool does the job. Made in the USA.

    The only knock is that they have some sharp and seemingly unfinished edges. Most older tools have all the sharp edges removed. Too bad they now cut corners on the finished feel.

    Still a great and highly recommended product.

    The 480 is an overgrown version of the common tongue and groove pliers that have been around for eons. These pliers don’t grip like a pipe wrench or chain tongs, but are better than common slip-joint pliers. The 480 is very well made and has a capacity of around 5 inchs. I don’t believe I will ever use this tool at it’s rated capacity,and I probably won’t use it often, but it exerts a lot of pressure on smaller items and I am glad I purchased them.
