It same here for calling slip joint pliers channel locks
Thst name for them stuck every were,   If happy to say
Slip joint plier half people dont even know that that is
Here. But if say channel locks they know what that tool is from right of bat and that name stucked from then on.
 

It same way with circline tube.  Who want say round fluorescent  tube  while one word discribe it that type of tube. No one here in USA like long english langish  to discribe a object.
