Side-cutting pliers also cut, strip, crimp

March 23, 2016
Klein’s electricians pliers can be used to cut cable and strip large-gauge wires.

Klein Tools has combined several major functions of side-cutting pliers into a single tool geared to electricians. Klein’s Journeyman High-Leverage Side-Cutting Pliers with Wire Stripper/Crimper is a multi-tool that cuts and strips 10- to 12-AWG solid and 12- to 14-AWG stranded wire; it also crimps non-insulated connectors, lugs and terminals.

David Klein, associate director of product management at Klein Tools, said, “We know electricians often use their Kleins to strip wire. So we incorporated striping holes into the cutting jaw to make the task more efficient. That added function saves time on the jobsite and means fewer tools needed in the tool bag.”

Other features of the 9-inch multi-functional side-cutting pliers include a high-leverage design for increased cutting and gripping power; cross-hatched knurled jaws for sure gripping; induction-hardened cutting knives; crimping die positioned behind hinge for significant leverage; hot-riveted joint, ensuring smooth action without handle wobble; dual-material handles for a comfortable grip.
