Klein Tools Tradesman Pro Line Additions
When I’m on the job site, it’s easy to focus on the tools and materials for the job while overlooking the storage and organization…until I can’t find what I’m looking for and start cursing under my breath while I make six trips to the truck for all my tools, laptop, paperwork, and the list goes on. Of course while I’m leaning over the tool box, my iPhone is going to fall out of my shirt pocket and the screen will crack. Again. The Klein Tools Tradesman Pro line aims to fix that.
Should I replace the screen for the fourth time, or am I finally eligible for an upgrade to the next brittle screened electronic leash? Fortunately for people like me, Klein Tools has some additions to its Tradesman Pro line that should be able keep things organized and limit amount of bad language I’m tempted to use. They are introducing a pair of new organizational bags, two new smartphone holders, and a trio of new meter cases.
Klein Tools Tradesman Pro Tech Backpack
Leading the new products are the Klein Tools Tradesman Pro Tech Backpack and Tradesman Pro Tech Bag. Both were created with the idea of keeping your gear and your technology organized, protected, and together in one asy to carry bag. “Many technicians have to carry two bags to the jobsite, one for their tools and one for their laptops. With these new Tradesman Pro Tech Bags, you can put your laptop and tools all in one bag,” Project Manager Linda Rolfe tells us. Specifically designed to meet the needs of the professional that needs to carry a laptop to the work site, each of the new bags have a separate compartment just for laptop storage and protection from tools.
The Tech Backpack (55456BPL) features 25 pockets and includes a hard, molded front pocket to store safety glasses. The bottom is also molded and durable to protect against the elements. The Tech Bag (55455M) has 22 pockets and , in addition to the laptop storage, has a zipper pocket for files and paperwork. It also features a water resistant material on the bottom for protection. I was able to find the Tech Backpack for $101.31 and the Tech Bag for $77.88.
Klein Tools Tradesman Pro Cell Phone Holder
Helping to protect my phone from further damage or the expense and frustration of replacement, Klein has also designed two cell phone holders. Featuring a magnetic flap closure and metal belt clip, there are two sizes available of the Tradesman Pro Smartphone Holders. One is for smaller phones like the iPhone 4 or 5 (55460). The larger size is designed to fit phones such as the Samsung Galaxy (55461). I found both cases for $18.48 each.
Klein Tools Tradesman Pro Meter Carrying Case
The Klein Tools Tradesman Pro Meter Carrying Case available in three sizes. The smallest (69406) is 9.25″ high, 4.5″ wide, 2.25″ deep, and was $23.76 online. The medium (69407) is 10.25″ x 6″ x 2.25″ and is $32.97 online. The largest of the group (69408) is 10.25″ x 7″ x 2.5″ and can be found online for $34.95. Each of the Meter Carrying Cases feature two layer of padding for protection of instruments , PVC coated polyester for durability, and an interior pocket for items such as instrument manuals. The medium and large sizes include an exterior pocket.
So maybe there’s hope for those of us that are organizationally challenged. Maybe I can reduce the number of trips back and forth to the truck. Maybe I can finally keep an iPhone intact for more than 3 months.
