Klein All-Purpose Pliers with Crimper

Klein All-Purpose Pliers with Crimper J207-8CR application

Without a doubt, pliers are one of the handiest tools in any electrician’s toolbox. Recently, Klein Tools recievied a 2015 Pro Tool Innovation Award for their latest pliers – the Klein All-Purpose Pliers with Crimper.

“We loved Klein’s original All-Purpose Pliers and they just got better! Klein removed the spring in the middle (which we liked) and replaced it with a crimper (which we really like) to add another feature to this innovative hand tool. So how do you choose between spring loaded and crimping? We’ll let you know if we decide for sure. For now, it’s a split decision. We’ll take both for the tool box and carry the crimping model for the belt.”

– Kenny Koehler, Managing Editor of Pro Tool Reviews

This version of the popular Klein All-Purpose Pliers (Cat. No. J207-8CR) combines the functions of a wire stripper, long-nose pliers, and a crimper all in one tool. To make room for the crimper, Klein needed to remove the spring from the original model. We really liked the spring action, but the added functionality is a welcome trade off.

“Multi-functional tools, like the All-Purpose Pliers with Crimper, are becoming more popular among electricians. These products save time, save money, and save space on the belt or in the bag, making them more efficient and effective tools.”

– David Klein, Klein Tools Product Manager
