Klein Tools Adds More Functions to Side-Cutting Pliers Klein Tools http://www.kleintools.com combined all of the major functions of side-cutting pliers into one tool - the Journeyman Side-Cutting Pliers.RS Staff ⋅ Mar 25, 2016 Klein Toolscombined all of the major functions of side-cutting pliers into one tool – the Journeyman High-Leverage Side-Cutting Pliers with Wire Stripper/Crimper. This new multi-tool cuts and strips 10-12 AWG solid and 12-14 AWG stranded wire, and crimps non-insulated connectors, lugs, and terminals. “We know electricians often use their ‘Klein’s’ to strip wire,” said David Klein, associate director of product management at Klein Tools. “So we incorporated stripping holes into the cutting jaw to make that task more efficient. That added function saves time on the jobsite and means fewer tools needed in the tool bag.” SubscribeFor more stories like this, and to keep up to date with all our market leading news, features and analysis, sign up to our newsletter here.
