Klein Tools insulated pliers feature two layers of insulation on the handles-a bright orange, impact-resistant outer coating covers a white, high-dielectric inner coating. The double-insulated design provides superior protection against electrical shocks of up to 1,000 volts.

The thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) handles are patented and designed for exceptional toughness. They are built to resist chemicals, abrasions and marring. An integral guard on the top of the handles helps prevent inadvertent hand contact with conductive parts.

Klein® insulated pliers exceed the EN 60900 and ASTM F1505 industry standards for insulated tools. The pliers are clearly marked with the official "1,000-Volt rating" symbol.

Like all Klein pliers, the new insulated pliers feature a hot-riveted joint to ensure smooth action with no handle wobble. The high-leverage design on the side-cutting pliers provides 46% greater cutting at the knives than other designs allow.

Other Klein features of the pliers include a precision gap at the jaw, induction-hardened cutting knives, and a precision-hardened head for on-the-job toughness. The head is constructed of custom, U.S.-made tool steel.

Pliers have bright orange, impact-resistant outer coating plus white, high-dielectric inner coating that provide protection against electrical shocks up to 1,000 V. Thermoplastic polyurethane handles resist chemicals, abrasions, and marring. Integral guard on top of handles helps prevent inadvertent hand contact with conductive parts. Pliers exceed EN 60900 and ASTM F1505 industry standards for insulated tools.
