Throughout 2021, once a month we’re continuing to bring you a Klein Timeline Snapshot: a look back in time at a specific year, looking at what the world was like in said year, and what was happening with Klein Tools.

This month’s year:  1957

Eggs: $.55 per dozen
Toastmaster Toaster: $11.95
1955 Pontiac Catalina: $2,095

What was happening in the world:  A notable world event was occurring in April of 1957, and it’s rather timely with events today, as it involved the Suez Canal, the same canal that was recently blocked for six days after the accidental grounding of a container ship. In 1956, conflict between Egypt and the Western powers (Israel, the United Kingdom and France) led to the Suez Canal being closed for almost 6 months. This event, called the Suez Crisis, of course cause many issues in terms of transportation of goods, and only heightened the conflict between the involved nations. After months of struggle and eventual pressure from the United States, Soviet Union and United Nations, the conflict came to an end, and on April 9, 1957, the Suez Canal was cleared and once again open for shipping.

As we’ve moved into 2021 and life has somewhat started returning to normal after the various interruptions of last year, trade professionals are getting back to work, and jobsites are busier than ever making up for lost time. Given that fact, and the fact that some stores are still implementing limited shopping experiences, said professionals might have the time or opportunity to go to a store and check out the latest tools before making a purchase. Seeing this problem and wanting to help out the pros that support us every day, Klein Tools came up with a solution, with the introduction of our Klein Tools sales trucks.

Over the past several weeks, we’ve focused this blog on looking at different lines of Klein Tools and breaking down the varieties of said tool that Klein offers. We continue that process today, with a focus on cable cutters, a staple in the tool bag of many trade professionals. While all cable cutters are essentially designed for the same task of cutting various cables, the way they are engineered can make certain jobs quicker and easier.

Pliers have always been one of the cornerstones of Klein Tools’ business. Mathias Klein made the first pair of Klein pliers himself, back in 1857, and today we produce 165 different varieties of pliers for specific trades and tasks. While it would take a much longer blog than we have room for to break down every variety, one key differentiator for our pliers is the handles. The colors and styles of the handles on Klein’s pliers help users to identify what line a pair of pliers belongs to, and certain color handles are designed with certain features in mind. Take a look at what some of those different handles mean in terms of using the pliers.

Insulated Handles
-These orange and black handled pliers feature a unique three-part insulation with a white underlayer that provides a warning sign that insulation may be compromised. These pliers are designed to protect the user from electric shock and meet or exceed ASTM F1505 and IEC 60900 standards for insulated tools. Small thumbguards on both sides help provide for ease of use and easy storage in a tool belt.
