Highway 280 - Crescent Locking Pliers

I found these Crescent locking pliers on Highway 280 in June of 1998. The locking pliers were lying in the turn lane just south of the traffic signal in Harpersville, Alabama.

I spotted the pliers as I entered the highway after having stopped at the Jack's fast food restaurant for a soft drink. I slowed down, stopped beside the pliers, opened my door and leaned out and picked up the pliers. The pliers appeared to have battery acid on them at the time and have rusted slightly since that day. The pliers are otherwise in excellent shape. This is the small (seven inch) version of these pliers. I don't have many opportunities to use this tool, but it is nice to know I have them handy.
