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.

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.
