I recently bought a pair of canvas pliers from Twinbrooks in Lincolnville, ME and love them.

I have had many pairs before and none of them really worked well for me. I was getting arthritic pains in my hands from tugging and pulling at the canvas, so I finally bit the bullet and spent the money for these. They really do eliminate all the strain and do a good job of tightening the canvas. The only thing I would criticize is that the pliers do not come in a smaller size that better fits a woman's hands. They are fairly hefty.

I have the same pliers, Mary, and I don't know what I would do without them!
