First one I've ever had so seems ok to me for stretching canvas.
from los angeles
This is one of the best canvas plier that I ever used. Width of it really helps strech canvas without forcing it.
Good grip on canvas
from Melbourne, FL
Grips canvas without slipping, which is essential to getting a tight fit.

Pliers good for stretching boat canvases
from Hudson, NY
Great tool. But I didn't use it to stretch artist canvases. I used it on my boat to stretch my boat cover. That covering had shrunk a little, so it was really hard pull it tight to engage the snaps. Enter the canvas pliers!

Very short life
By CPF Dave
from Dallas, Texas
We wanted a large pair of pliers to stretch oversize canvas to make the project go faster. The first large canvas that we did it worked as espected. Five months later when we used it for a large canvas on site, the handle broke before we could finish the stretching. We had a back up pliers of a different brand so we could complete the job for our client/Artist. I am 65 years old and not as strong as I used to be so why did it break in such a short amount of time or uses?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

not too hot
from martinez, ga
The spring that goes between the two handles falls out all the time. I have to use it without the spring.
Slip slidin' away
from Richmond, VA
We bought these thinking we'd treat ourselves to a luxury product. (We'd previously been using the regular Frederix pliers). Unfortunately we haven't been able to make them work. They grip the canvas well enough, but there is no way to get them to lever against the canvas stretcher to pull the canvas tight. We have tried them upside down, right side up, and every other way we can conceive of, but they just don't work. It's very frustrating! We have worn out our other set and need to buy a new set, but now I don't know what kind.

Great product at a great price!
These canvas pliers offer wide jaws that stretch but do not mar the canvas because of the rubber grippers. Plastic coverings on the handles make using the pliers easy on the hands. I almost hesitate saying this, but these pliers were half the cost of very similar ones at a local "discount" art supply store. The tool works as expected and is highly recommended!
