channel lock is a brand?
they are called multi's here to.
it's funny how it works like that.
an adjustable spanners have always been called a cresent to me.
i was working with a swedish plumber and i said to him the thread on his cresent was backwards, i thought he was going to thump me, i got an earful about how bahco invented the adjustable spanner and cresent stole it reversed the thread to avoid the patent or something.
look forwards to seeing your hunting results
It's not a brand, it's just what we call them. I don't know the origins.
