Klein Tools Wins Four Pro Tool Reviews Innovation Awards


LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. — Four of Klein Tools’ products were honored with 2014 Pro Tool Reviews Innovation Awards.

The Klein Tools product winners include Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant, All-Purpose Pliers, the Switch Drive Handle System and the Tradesman Pro Organizer Lighted Tool Bag.

“Certain manufacturers go the extra mile to add useful and often game-changing innovations to their product offerings," said Clint DeBoer, executive director of the Pro Tool Innovation Awards. "Klein tools deserve a coveted spot in the toolbox of any tradesman, contractor or DIYer."

A panel of judges representing tool professionals from across the U.S. weighed in on entries from top global manufacturers, and Klein Tools was selected as a recipient of this honor.

Here's what the Pro Tool Review Innovative Awards judges had to say about Klein Tools:

  1. Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant — Klein’s Foam Wire Pulling Lubricant is a game changer for electricians. Although the can is about the same size as a can of spray paint, the foam expands significantly and will replace about a gallon of gel.
  2. All-Purpose Pliers — If you want a nice well-rounded set of pliers for stripping wire, it will be hard to beat these. For one, they have an entirely different feel from the Klein-Kurve wire cutters. There are going to be a lot of people who really like that—we do.
  3. Switch Drive Handle System — We love being able to use all of our accessories in impact drivers, but the fact is that there are times when even the lowest speeds don’t have enough control or finesse to do the job properly (or you simply don’t need the additional weight of a battery-powered tool). We’re happy to know that Klein quality is built into these hand drivers that give us the opportunity to do both.
  4. Tradesman Pro Organizer Lighted Tool Bag — Tool bags often fall prey to becoming a place to dump all your hand tools in one place without much organization. They all are mixed up at the bottom and you root around hoping to grab the right one. By designing an orange interior and including a light to see, Klein makes those of us that are a little more disorganized a little less frustrated.
