Do not purchase the Fredrix Canvas Pliers
from Ketchikan, AK
Comments about Fredrix Canvas Pliers:
I had read the comments concerning these pliers before purchasing. Thought I'd give them a chance.The handle spring did not "pop out", in fact it works quite well.But the pliers did not grip the canvas well enough to properly stretch the canvas. The cute looking teeth just slid.I am a retired maintenance worker with very good hand strength.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Great Canvas Pliers
from L Chorrera, Panama
These pliers are great for gripping that hard to hold canvas and get it real tight. I can't imagine life without these pliers.
from Ocala, FL
Great product, great price, fast delivery.That's why I keep coming back.
from Richmond, va
We have been using these for several years now, stretching about 150 canvases with them. Just recently they have begun to stop working. The bolt holding them together has loosened too much. We hammered it back in. That seemed to help. Also, the plates seem to have worn out so they're not gripping the canvas anymore. We took a file to them to try to roughen them up again. That helped. Also, the handles hurt our hands when stretching canvas so we taped a rag to them.Clearly, they aren't perfect, but they're better than the more expensive Frederic's. we need to buy a new pair now. Hope the new pair is better than the ones people are talking about in the other reviews!

Not bad for the money
By Jolly Jimbo
I've stretched several hundred prints flawlessly using these pliers with my only complaint being that I am unable to locate replacement springs. This is the only part that has failed on me. I think the people that are breaking them don't know how to stretch canvas. Let's see... which is stronger - steel or cloth?

Expensive Pliers - Broke After Little Us
These pliers broke when I used them to gently stretch printed canvas. Very light-duty use. These are expensive, cheaply-made pliers. They are made from pot metal.
some work but most seem to break
By Luck of the draw
I have bought several of these and have recommended at one point that my students buy them. 4 out of 5 broke for the students immediately - as in first canvas. Two that I have purchased over the years worked beautifully and consistently. All the rest broke. The only reason I continue to buy them is because the price is reasonable considering dick blick is so good about replacing broken or unuseable items. Only buy knowing you'll quite likely have to have it replaced.

There is a small metal wire in between the handles and it broke when I opened the package. I did my best to get the wire back in but the pliers still ended up tearing my canvas.
