Correct, the Stanley tool company is in no way related to the quality Stanley tools that your grandad had. In 2009 the brand became part of Black & Decker, instead of making their own tools the brand is now predominantly used to re-brand cheap tools that are not manufactured by the company. You will find the same tools with many other brand names on, all from the same low cost factory.

I would have thought they were proper Stanley ones from a store like Wilko .
Reviews on the site are pretty good also

Far as I know...not Chinese Tat,short on Pliers....Hot.🐴

The brand name ""Stanley"" is used now on all sorts of cheap crap. All they do is buy rights to use their brand name. It's not the quality it used to be.

Wasn't aware of that.
Thanks for the tip.

Bit like what a famous knockdown sports store does. Brands they sell like Fred Perry, No Fear, Slazenger all went bust. They bought the logo rights so the cheap clothes produced in far east get put the "logo" on thats why we think their prices are a bargain.

the "real" stanley tools are the now called Stanley Fat Max. these look like awfull quality

I was wondering that too. I've noticed that the fat max stuff does tend to be better quality

Think you'll find both are made by the same company Fat max is more a premium range thou which obviously attracts a higher price .
The ones posted appear to be pretty good quality from what I can see and I actually bought a set ( amazing gift you have to look at a picture and tell the quality), The reviews are also good for these . Not Professional tools for daily use and yes there are far better quality items out there but not at this price, For DIYer's & home use probably more than adequate.
Wilko are also an authorised Stanley Supplier, the same as Travois Perkins, Screwfix, B&Q, Halfords, Plumb centre etc.

Sorry that isn't the case, the fat max range are products that have been either made by the Stanley Black & Decker company or manufactured for them to their specification. The rest of the Stanley products are tools that are manufactured by low cost factories and branded as Stanley. That is not to say none of the tools are any good, just that they are the same tools that you will find branded as Draper, Homebase, B&Q, PowerFix, Workzone, Parkside, Tesco etc.

So when evaluating the value, don't be fooled into thinking because it has the Stanley name on it they will be better than DIY/Supermarket own brand tools, as they will be identical, they have come off the same production line.

I dont have time to upload it as a deal, but in Lidl currently you have tools on 3 for £5 and you can choose exactly the same as this deal for £5.

They look like junk. Modern Stanley is nothing like the Stanley of old. You'd likely find better for £8 without too much effort.

i have these they are ok for jobs around the house but damn they rust quickly.

Lets be honest here anyone spending just £8 on 3 pairs of pliers surely isn't thinking they are going to be pro quality . You wouldn't get one pair of decent pliers for that much. For for home use these will be fine but there again you may as well buy some from the local market stall as they will probably be cheaper .
