Ever wonder why Klein uses hot-riveted joints in our pliers? What the difference is between precision-machined vs. cold-formed when it comes to screwdrivers?

Sometimes “more is better.” In fact, a well-known cell phone company has designed an entire ad campaign around that whole idea. But when it comes to tools, particularly Power Drivers, we would argue that the “right ONE is better.”
Consider this scenario: You’re up on a ladder, perhaps running some conduit, when you realize your #2 square bit isn’t in your tool belt. In fact, it’s still in your tool bag, hidden somewhere in the box of several dozen drill bits you keep around.
Or just as bad, imagine you are working in a ceiling fumbling to switch out your #2 Phillips bit with a 3/8” nut driver bit, when you drop them down into a dark wall.
Both cringe-worthy and frustrating scenarios, especially when time is important.
When you think of things that are “tough,” many of us might put this year’s winter under that category. It’s been brutal, significant snowfall and double-digit negative temperatures nearly every week since December! Our friends to the north have had it even worse, so they posed a very topical question…
Is a Canadian winter #TougherThan our new tough meter, the MM500?
It’s no secret, having the right tool for the job can make all the difference, just ask Cory Taylor. Cory sent us an email several months ago telling us how carrying a pair of Klein Tools scissors may have saved his life.
Just over two months ago, we started out on a search for the most outstanding electrician in the country. We were searching for an electrician who exhibits pride in their craft, who takes job-site safety to the highest standards, and who gives back to their community, and we found that in Billy Teaford.
Over the weekend, I had an opportunity to attend one of my favorite Klein Tools events during the year, the 25-Year Dinner. It’s a night where the company recognizes and honors employees who celebrated their 25th work anniversary at Klein Tools in the previous year.
25 years! Can you imagine? It says a lot about the dedication and loyalty of a person who is willing to work at the same company for a quarter of a century.
This year Klein Tools welcomed eight new members to the 25 Year Club – all representing various divisions of the company: manufacturing, shipping, quality, and sales. We also had inductees from four of our seven US facilities – Lincolnshire, IL; Fort Smith, AR; Elk Grove Village, IL; and Mansfield, TX.
From nearly 200 Electrician of the Year nominees, we’ve narrowed it down to six. Gentlemen from across the country who inspired us with their dedication to professional development, dedication to safety, and dedication to their communities. It was an extremely tough decision, but we are proud to introduce the Electrician of the Year Regional Winners:
It’s been two weeks since we closed the nomination process for Klein Tools’ Electrician of the Year, and we’ve spent the last couple of weeks sifting through nearly 200 nominations! I have to say, I have really enjoyed reading about all the nominees.
