Welcome to dickblick
Artists can't afford to buy tools that won't last. That's why Richeson Canvas Pliers are a great investment.
Made of heavy-duty cast iron, they feature 3" (7.62 cm) wide serrated jaws and a textured, no-slip handle for a secure grip — making it easy for you to achieve a tight, even stretch every time.

A Solid Tool
Comments about Richeson Cast Iron Canvas Pliers:
The 3" wide jaws really helped me in getting the job done on the largest canvas I've ever had to stretch. Unfortunately, any wider makes available have the rubber pads for jaw-grips rather than the serrated, mated metal jaws these sport. I also prefer the rough iron finish, better to get a grip on, compared to most other makes available in a slick chrome finish. It's a solid tool and a solid value.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Grab well with minimum of effort.
Works like they should
from Portland, OR
I don't know much about the market for canvas pliers but I can say these were extremely affordable and have thus far made stretching canvases much easier. So far, I've stretched about 7 large canvases with them..they have a good grip on the fabric and make the framed piece tight as a drum. Great deal.
Does what it should
from Everett, WA
Stretch canvas like a pro! (or just save your finger strength) These canvas pliers have made stretching canvas very easy. Mine did have a casting burr on it that I had to shave off before use, but nothing that a simple file couldnt fix.
Cast Iron Canvas Pliers Saves Time - Saves Money

The canvas pliers work great on cowhides. No hassle in stretching thick hides to required shape. Saves time which saves money.

Would by this product again
from Ketchikan, AK
This was my first canvas stretching experiment and I purchased two different brands of stretching pliers.These pliers worked for me.They gripped the canvas and held it while I stapled it to the stretcher bars.They are not pretty and would like to see a handle opening spring, but the price is excellent.

Sturdy, But May Require an Easy Fix
Overall, these pliers are really sturdy. The only problem I've had with them is that the piece holding the two sides together fell off before I even used them. It was an easy fix, though; I replaced it with an 8-32 bolt and now it's perfect. Because that joining piece is so weak, I would advise anyone interested in these pliers to be prepared to replace it. Personally, I find it worth replacing the one part for how inexpensive these pliers are compared to others.
