The "G" suffix was for blue grip in price lists/catalogs etc.  347G -Grip   347 -bare handles.
I think by the 80's just the Grip versions were available in typical retail.

I picked these up last week. My wife’s truck has a impossible to get off oil filter so I am hoping these do the trick.

The only thing I see that I would improve is the dried glob of coating. Will it effect the use of the tool, no. Am I upset about it, no. Just glad to have another great set of USA made blue handles in the box.

I have the AZ cheapo version of those.  It replaced them all.  Years on the only one I use.  Just don't pkan on using the filter again after.  They bite and chew them up.

Gang,

The oil filter pliers are also great in the kitchen.  They can be used to remove any lid from almost any jar you are likely to run into.

I keep a set of these pliers in the kitchen utensil drawer.  They get used every week and never fail.  They get used on oil filters about four times a year fishslap

Wanted to see how long they were so I googled the model number, 12"  Handy size.

Also found this description interesting

"Channellock 212 4-1/4-Inch Jaw Capacity Plier for Oil Filters PVC and Sink strainers"

I guess Gary's use in the kitchen is allowed lolx

Shoot! Great idea!
Me being the wife's hero by getting off tight lids has waned a bit as arthritis or whatever it is now makes opening jars a challenge. Although the JarKey has helped with the vast majority of frozen lids.

Bought my Mom and electric jar opener at a sale.  Never even knew they existed.  Works great but is a bit bulky if you don't have a lot of counter space.  Got it back when she moved into assisted living.  Am holding on to it for future use.
