Aubuchon Hardware Tip: When using lockjaw and channel lock pliers, it can be quite easy to strip the sides off a bolt or similar fasteners. You don't need a death-grip to turn a bolt in most cases. Using a lighter touch insures the bolt or other fastener is able to be re-used when it comes to to reassemble the item you took apart with the pliers. If you have stripped a bolt with the pliers, don't try to replace it when the job is done. Discard it and replace with a serviceable bolt instead.
