NCVT1 Recall

Klein Tools is issuing a voluntary product recall on the NCVT1 in our Test and Measurement Line due to a potential safety hazard.

Why Is There A Recall?

It has recently come to our attention that one of our products, the NCVT-1 NONCONTACT VOLTAGE TESTER, has a potential safety issue that Klein Tools would like to rectify. The on/off button of the NCVT-1 is intended to be pressed down and then released. If the button remains depressed during the power on or power off cycle, the tip of the tool remains illuminated in green, indicating the tool is "ready to detect voltage," when it is not.

These affected products are sold in the following SKU numbers:

NCVT1 69149
NCVT1SEN 80018
NCVT1EP 80023

This recall involves Klein Tools Non-Contact Voltage Tester with model numbers NCVT1 bearing date codes ending H7. The product was also sold in variations and kits listed above, all bearing date codes ending in H7.
