Tools & Home Improvement
Klein Tools warranty covers any defects in quality or workmanship. It does not cover a tool if the tool simply wears out or has obviously been abused. Our quality data demonstrates that we have very few quality issues. Those that we do find are addressed aggressively. Our quality is excellent because we use the highest quality materials and employ the most modern manufacturing and quality systems in the world - right here in the USA. All Klein Tools distributors are required to process warranty returns. If you have a problem with a warranty return, you may want to consider using a different distributor because most of our distributors perform this process without hesitation. They know we back up our products and provide them prompt credit for warranty returns.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Amazon wants me to review a tool? It's a Klein Tool. Like every other Klein Tool it does what it's supposed to do and is solidly built. I WILL say that I didn't know Klein made the crimper with the needle nose; I was looking to replace my round nose crimper. With the needle nose, I've replaced two tools from my belt with this one tool.
For years you had to have 2 tools on your telecom tool belt. 1 needle nose pliers with stripping hole, and 1 crimping tool for UR/UY connectors. Someone finally got wise and put the 2 together as if they were meant for each other. If you are a telecom tech, or a splicer, you will have 1 of these on your belt, and 1 as a spare. Just be sure to spray the pivot pin with some machine oil, as these Klein pliers do not freely open and close, as other brands do. Other than that they work flawlessly.
Just got this one for work so that I can use it to crimp wires together for butt connecting wires. It works great for that, but the wire stripper is not very good.
