Klein Tools was productive, launching four new products recently. Expanding upon the concept of multi-bit screwdrivers, Klein has come up with the 7-in-1 Nut Driver. Utilizing spring coils and rare earth magnets, this tool makes changing nuts and bolts a synch. Their Electricians multi-tool features a small knife, Philips and flat-head screwdrivers, and a wire stripper. Not sure how useful a splinter remover is, but it stores neatly in the aluminum handle.
Klein’s two new large cable strippers are a unique product we haven’t seen before. These four headed demons slice cable insulation without nicking the wire. Works with a variety of cable manufacturers, including CME, Encore, United Copper Industries and Southwire. The next time you need to trim a wire, put that pocket knife away in favor of Klein’s cable strippers.
