Visited Costco yesterday and picked up a little "ChannelLock" Litium Ion electric screwdriver. Except that the only thing ChannelLock about it is the label. This thing was imported from China by Allied something or other for Costco, according to the packaging. The ChannelLock brand was used by permission. In other words, ChannelLock's owners rented out the brand name for a fee, with no guarantee that the product meets any particular quality standard. I will add the ChannelLock name to the mental list of product names I carry that I avoid unless I am looking for something that doesn't have to be any better than Harbor Freight quality.
