Pliers for garden hose fittings
 
Saw this used the other day, want to buy them, but can't seem to GOOGLE them up:

A pair of pliers with offset jaws shaped to fit a female garden hose fitting.

Anyone know what these are called, or have a link?

The ones that I use are called slip joint water pump pliers, brand name Channellock.

Thanks, but it was not a conventional slip-joint, the jaws were at right angles to the handles, so that you could turn the fitting when you did not have access from the side.

V Jaw Channellocks
 
Normal Channellock pliers work fine for hose fittings, as the previous poster said. But Channellock also makes a V-Jaw plier that would work a little better:

I'll call the service company today, and see if they can identify the manufacturer.
