4th of July Fun

One of my favorite holidays of the year is almost here...Independence Day! My family typically spends the long holiday weekend at our lake cabin – out on the boat, BBQ-ing, and (my favorite!) watching and shooting off fireworks!

Hopefully you were able to get Friday off of work to enjoy the long weekend, and you have some good 4th of July fun planned. I've taken the liberty of browsing Pinterest for some pretty cool patriotic DIY projects to tackle on your day off. (HINT: Some Klein tools may be required)

Tool Muzak

"Music is the soundtrack of your life." – Dick Clark

What do you get when you combine a long-nose pliers, a clamp meter, a tool backpack and two screwdrivers? ...a jobsite jam session!

Take a listen!

We know you guys listen to music a lot on the job and that many of you are musicians, too. That inspired us to make a little music of our own using some decidedly unique instruments.

And since Make Music Day was just this past weekend, we're extending a challenge to you!

Make Music Day 2015

Make Music started 32 years ago in France by a man named Jack Lang and his staff at the Ministry of Culture. They dreamed up a free music festival where anyone and everyone would be invited to not only listen to, but join in on, the music and host performances.

The Search is On!

I am so excited that we are kicking off another Electrician of the Year search this year, and not just because of the ridiculously awesome grand prize we are giving away (more on that later...).

Klein Tools 2015 Electrician of the Year

Your Loyalty Rewarded

I've said it before, but I am pretty certain that Klein Tools has the most loyal fans out there and it's about time you were rewarded for that loyalty, right??

And now you can be with Klein Tools' new Loyalty Rewards Program! All you have to do is Buy, Snap and Redeem.

T&M Wearables

No matter how many hooks, clips or magnets we use, or how many pouches or bags we create, the chief complaint we still hear about meters and other test and measure equipment is: They are bulky and a pain to carry around the jobsite.

It’s a problem we were pondering awhile back in a product planning meeting. Our brainstorming session had stalled and in the silence of the conference room, all you could hear was the clock ticking and someone tapping a pencil on a pad of paper. And then I saw someone across the room glance down to check their watch…and it hit me: What if you could WEAR your meter, like a watch.

The History of Klein Tools

I wouldn't have classified History as one of my favorite subjects in school, but now that I'm a little older, I have become more and more fascinated by the events of the past, especially the historical journey of people, places, and things and how they came to be where they are today. In my opinion, Klein Tools has had a great historical journey.

Branded Blowout

In case you haven't noticed, we're having a ridiculously awesome sale on KleinConnection.com. That is where you can buy any official Klein branded items, plus you can get great deals on clearance tools and replacement parts.

What’s in a Bag

It’s been two weeks since that pesky groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter, and boy has he delivered. Bitter cold in the Midwest, snow and ice the south, and what can only be described as a malicious attack by Mother Nature on the east coast (you have our deepest sympathies, Boston).

Here at Klein, we decided we needed to do something to lift the spirits, warm the heart, and share some love (we did just celebrate Valentine’s Day after all). So, for the next week, we’re giving you a chance to win a brand-new Tradesman Pro™ Organizer tool bag!

I know you’ve seen these bags – on jobsites, at the supply houses. Aside from being ridiculously functional, these bags are just cool.

They have that bright orange fabric inside that makes it easier to see your tools, not to mention the massive amount of pockets each bag has to keep all your gear organized. They are durable, too, with fully molded bottoms that keep that winter slush from seeping into your bag and (bonus!) keep your bag upright.

Made in Space

Imagine getting all the way to outer space only to realize you left your socket wrench back on earth. Uh…Houston, we have a problem.

Thankfully, NASA says it now has a solution. Just recently, NASA beamed up a digital design of a ratcheting socket wrench to an innovative new orbiting 3D printer on the International Space Station. Four hours later the space station’s astronauts had a functioning wrench in hand!

'Tis the Season for Klein Tools

Thanksgiving is less than a week away and after that the Christmas season gets in to full swing. The Klein Tools elves have been hard at work creating some pretty awesome “toys” for us to give away to you!

Here it is! Mark your calendars! Set reminders on your phone! Because you’ll definitely want to get in on these great holiday deals!

Cyber Monday Deals

Don’t worry, we’re giving you a couple of days to recover from that delicious Thanksgiving dinner, but come December 1st (Cyber Monday) we launch our first holiday deal. How exactly do you get in on it? Join the KLEIN TRADESMAN CLUB! Yep, that’s it! If you join, we’ll send the deal directly to you via email (if you’re already a member, you’re already on the email list so you don’t have to do anything!). This is an exclusive deal for Tradesman Club members only, so I can’t give you all of the details. I will say this though, if you are a fan of anything camo, go right now and sign up for the Tradesman Club!
