History of Klein Tools


The new line of insulated tools incorporates all the Klein quality design and construction features that professionals have relied on for over 137 years. The tools combine excellent functionality along with reduction of risk of injury where a tool might make contact with an energized source with voltage up to 1000 volts.

Klein's insulated side-cutting pliers are available in two styles. They are: 1) the standard duty pliers, which have long been recognized for their premium quality design and rugged, precision construction, and 2) the innovative Klein "2000 SERIES" pliers with super-tough cutting knives, specially designed and heat-treated to cut bolts, nails, ACSR, and most hardened wire without damage. The two-layer insulation on all pliers listed results in a 1000-volt rating for the tools' use. They comply with IEC 900 standards for hand tools.

KLEIN High-leverage side-cutting pliers provide 46% more cutting and gripping power than other designs. Crimping version has a die behind the hinge for crimping non-insulated connectors, lugs and terminals. Also features a toothed pipe grip for greater power. Two NE-type side-cutting pliers with special features are available from Klein Tools. Each of the Klein® side-cutting pliers includes its own unique added feature-one for pulling flat fish tape and the other for crimping sleeve connectors. Both side-cutting pliers have smooth, streamlined noses with knurled jaws. Both side cutters feature plastic-dipped handles.

The Klein side cutters have a special groove at the hinge for gripping and pulling flat fish tapes. The design allows for a quick, sure grip and minimizes pulling effort without damaging the fish tape.

The side cutters feature a crimping die at the hinge for quick, easy crimping of sleeve connectors.

Klein side-cutting pliers have long been known for their premium quality, innovative design and rugged, precision construction. The model is Klein Tools' most popular style of standard side-cutting pliers.
