Hmm, Hypertough or Pittsburg ($4.39 after 20% coupon)? Is there a difference?

Quality is probably similar and, in my experience, Walmart is better/easier for returns...so I'd probably go with Walmart's HyperTough over Harbor Freight's Pittsburg. Just my 2¢.

Why would it have to be a special trip?

Some people return to walmart on another day to shop again.

I wonder how these do fending off weld splatter.....?

I use my these for fitting up and welding clamps/jigs, so they see a lot of welding splatter.
I've tried cheaper clamps before but always end up going back to my Irwin 11R model.
I've had Irwin clamps that have lasted years and years, while other cheaper clamps seem to get covered in welding splatter a lot quicker. I'm not sure what coating Irwin uses on their locking clamps, but it does a much better job shedding welding splatter than any other clamp I've tried.
I typically pay $13 each for the Irwin 11R, but stock up when they go on sale for less.

Might grab a couple of these just to try out for $5.

If you have a jones for cheap locking pliers like these, and have a nearby Tractor Supply store, I recommend you drop in and check out their clearance section. I found 2 and 3 plier sets of similar "JobSmart" pliers for even less than this. A big YMMV I know.

Right after clamps, you can't have too many locking pliers!
(a theory I'm currently testing)

I try to keep them sprayed down with WeldKleen HD, but it doesn't prevent it completely.

If you have a Menards near you their "Tool Shop" Brand equivalent tool is also around $5.00, quality is low though as it is on most of there own private label brands

I've never seen a returns line at Walmart less than 20 people long. HF will do an easy exchange with their lifetime warranty at any register and lookup your receipt too. If it's not too far out of the way, that'd be my choice by far.

On a side note, price and store in title, OP. Srsly.

Title updated. Thanks.

20 people in line every time, Do you count them?

The tools are probably the same, but the Pittsburgh is warrantied for life vs 5 years with the HyperTough. Harbor freight is also easier to deal with when it comes to warranty replacement. All I need to do an exchange is show any HF associate the busted Pittsburgh tool.

Why return? Lesson Learned, just buy a better one.
