Why are all good HD deals always OOS in my local store?

Great deal! Thx for sharing

One on left in picture is not worth 25 cents.
However, $2 for the one on the right is a steal.

  That Statement doesn't even make sense - if the one on the left isn't worth 25 cents, AND the one on the right IS worth $2 wouldn't it stand to reason that you get the one that isn't worth 25 cents for free?
Thanks OP, I ordered 4 - I seem to frequently forget them underneath my vehicle as they are gripping something and they tend to wind up on the freeway - so having a couple extra can't hurt!

Not sure why you took offense to his comment.  I think you misunderstood his statement.  He's just saying that the left one is basically worthless, but the deal is still worth $2 solely due to the merits of the item pictured on the right. 

Either way, don't you think it's a little harsh to give the guy a negative rating for saying what he said?  I don't agree with your statement either, but I did not negatively rate your comment.  JMHO.

  His opinion of the pliers has no bearing on the deal - should it matter if he thinks the "needle nose" version isn't worth a quarter?  I didn't rate it red because it was offensive - it just didn't make sense and was not constructive in any way to the deal discussion. that's what the rating system is for - not because you didn't like what someone said, or took offense to their post - unless you're a 5 year old, then sure, rate red for those reasons
This is a public deal forum with mostly good deals - but there sure is a lot of senseless bickering like old women on here - if people put half the effort into posting actual deals as they do posting nonsense comments, this deal forum would run like a finely tuned machine - but alas, it doesn't!

Both will be excellent tools for most purposes. I use one like the one on the right to clamp the license plate to my utility trailer! You can never have too many Vise-Grips! The one on the left would do a better job for my license plate.

rated:
Look, I'm not here to chastise anybody nor get into any bickering that you say you are against, but seem to enjoy instigating.  There is no need to get defensive.  I commented on your statement in a respectful manner and that's all.  I actually think his opinion was constructive in that it offered some insight on the quality/value of the tools and hence my comment to you about the red rating.  I agree with you on the fruitless banter/bickering that goes on in this forum.  I feel members are not nearly civil enough to each other, which is the other reason for my comment.  But, we've both stated our positions clearly, and I think there is nothing more to say that would yield a constructive conversation.  Good day.

Not sure where you live Appleski, but I have a whole toolbox, just of tools I find on the road, in the yard (from previous owners/workers), that I find when I do work on the house (sealed in walls, under floorboards.  I think I have a couple few vise grips, now I know where they came from.  If anyone finds my 3/8" craftsmen socket that I could not get out between my starter and transmission, let me know.

  At best, a baseless statement.  The long nose pliers, as well as the curved jaw pliers, are basically clones of two similar items from Irwin, who markets the original/trademarked Vise-Grips (see links below).  Each of the Irwin items will set you back $15-20, so $2 for a set of knock-offs is -- IMHO -- worth it.

In all seriousness, I'm curious... What is the intended use for the long nose pliers? They aren't needle-noseish enough to get into tight spaces. That said, if I had to have only one tool it'd be a locking plier, you can't have enough, and I ordered 4 sets. Awesome deal. There are some other interesting looking deals, such as retrieval tools.  Just do a search for HDX.  Looks like its their low-end, HF competition line.

Thanks op. Mostly sold out everywhere but I was able to finally find it. Even used it today and both works great.

rated:
Wow... Internet critics are *harsh*
I ave owned a version of the long nose pliers on left for years.
Due to length from pivot, jaws move about, and don't do their job.
I correct my statement, ones on left aren't worth the wholesale price of the ore that went into them.
ROTFLMAO

  Relevant specs appear same as the Irwin product.  Your assessment of "worth" seems based on design & function (as you see it), as opposed to quality of product.

  Thanks Lemon, I dont need this deal because I found the few you lost on the freeway.

$2.00 is probably a better price than you could at Harbor Freight.

Great, thanks.

Marketing. If a product is successful, but the market is saturated, one way to generate new sales is to create a "variation on a theme" item. Whether or not the new variation is useful, they will sell additional units because of a buyer's perception that the new style has a slightly different benefit and is necessary to own. A great example is marketing fishing lures. Take the same lure and sell it in 50 different colors. When working at a sporting goods store, the inside joke was the answer to the question, "Why are there so many colors of the same lure?" Answer: "To catch fishermen."

  Naw man, I bought a 3 pack of the right side kind in increasing sizes for $4 at Harbor Freight.

Undercut all of my baseboard to install tile this weekend.  The small pliers worked perfectly in the small space to pull out all of the old nails.  Not sure what I would have done without them.  Worth $2

Thanks OP! In for 1.

Edit: Just got a call from Home Depot saying they were out of the 2 piece so they are giving me a 3 piece set instead. SCORE! Thanks again, OP!
