Professional Tool Reviews for Pros


Manufacturer: Klein

Our Klein Tool reviews are specifically tailored for electricians and journeymen. Pros really need to know whether a new tool works well on the job. When we test most Klein tools we put them into the hands of our electrician Pros. This gives us valuable feedback on how they perform. We also do in-house testing to verify manufacturers specs and claims. Hand tools like the Klein Tools 9-inch Journeyman diagonal-cutting pliers quickly become new staples. Other products like the Klein Tradesman Pro tool backpack appeal to a particular journeyman audience. New tools are also coming to market like the Klein Tools cross-line laser level which brings more under the Klein name. Klein Tool Reviews for Electricians and Journeymen Whether you’re a seasoned electrician or an apprentice looking to set up his first rig, Klein Tools make a lot of sense. Still, our in-depth reviews tell you the difference between the “me too” products and the real deals.
