Pliers nab Showstopper Award

Having just won a Showstopper Award at the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) Tradeshow in Philadelphia, Klein’s new Journeyman 8” Hybrid Pliers with Crimper (J215-8CR) are quickly staking their claim as the ultimate electrician’s pliers that cut, strip, twist, shear and crimp.

Featuring state-of-the-art JourneymanTM dual material handles for better grip and comfort, these hybrid pliers are forged from custom US made tool steel and hot riveted to ensure smooth, sturdy action without compromising strength or durability.

Combining the work of up to 5 separate tools into one, this multi-purpose tool saves time spent fumbling around in tool boxes and reduces the number of tools necessary onsite.

With full length, induction hardened cutting knives and a high leverage design, the shearing of screws and cutting of nails and most hard wires pose no problem. The wide knurled head easily grabs and twists wires, plus the crimping of non-insulated connectors, lugs and terminals is a breeze for the Klein Hybrid Pliers with Crimper.

Klein have called upon more than six generations of tool development expertise in the creation of this innovative tool. A recent “State of the Industry” survey conducted by Klein Tools in the US revealed 60% of electricians consider lightweight tools to be important while 76% of millennials prefer multi-use tools over standard hand tools. With a focus on performance, durability and convenience, Klein’s Hybrid Pliers with Crimper hit the mark as a must-have tool that any busy electrical professional will appreciate.
