Klein Tools - For Professionals Since 1857

Klein Tools® Adds Two Pocket-Sized Innovations to the Voice-Data-Video Product Line

July 11, 2019 (Lincolnshire, Ill.) – Klein Tools (www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, introduces the new LAN Explorer™ Data Cable Tester (Cat. No. VDV526-100) and Compact Pass-Thru™ Modular Crimper (Cat. No. VDV226-005). The VDV526-100 tests voice and data cables for miswires, open faults, short faults and shield status. The VDV226-005 works with Pass-Thru™ connectors to reduce prep time with the capability to crimp Klein Tools’ RJ45 Pass-Thru™ connectors and trim conductor wires in one step. Both products augment Klein Tools’ existing Voice-Data-Video product line and feature pocket-sized, compact designs for easy, all-day carrying.
