Hand-tool offers multiple functions

June 19, 2009 - Channellock introduces its new #89 rescue tool designed for firefighters and EMS services. Number 89 combines multiple functions into one lightweight tool, eliminating the weight and bulk of multiple tools. The principal feature of #89 is a hardened cutting edge designed to shear through soft metal and standard battery cables. Other features include narrow jaws that fit into tight spaces, tapered pry wedge to open doors and windows, a spanner wrench that tightens and loosens up to six-inch hose couplings, a gas shut-off valve slot and a window punch that easily shatters safety glass.
