  • "Individually tested to exceed the IEC 60900 and ASTM F1505 standards, for insulated tools, and clearly marked with the official 1000-volt rating symbol."
  • Two layers of insulation provide protection against electric shock.
  • "Thick, exceptionally tough, high-dielectric white inner coating is bonded to the tool."
  • "A flame retardant, impact-resistant, bright orange outer coating.".
  • Integral guards help prevent hand contact with conductive parts.
  • High-leverage design for exceptional cutting ability.
  • Cable-gripping shear-type jaws.
  • "Precision, one-hand shearing action perfect for working in confined spaces."
  • DO NOT use to cut steel or ACSR.
  • "Only use tools that are marked with the official international 1000-volt rating symbol shown above, if there is any chance that the tools will make contact with an energized source."
  • "Whenever possible, always de-energize lines and equipment prior to working on or around them. Klein® insulated tools are designed only to reduce the chance of injury where the tool may make contact with an energized source."
  • Do NOT touch uninsulated portion of the tool or any conductive object when either might contact an energized source.
  • "Because moisture, films, or other surface contaminants are conductive, Klein® insulated tools must be kept clean, dry, and free of any surface contaminants."
  • Always inspect your tools before use. Destroy tool if insulation becomes damaged in any way.
