Klein® Tools Introduces the All-Purpose Pliers

Combines the functions of a wire stripper and long-nose pliers in one tool

March 18, 2014 (Lincolnshire, IL) - Klein Tools (http://www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, introduces the All-Purpose Pliers, a more durable wire stripping tool that also has the functionality of a long-nose pliers.


The All-Purpose Pliers (Cat. No. J206-8C) can strip, cut, and loop 8-16 AWG solid and 10-18 AWG stranded wire, plus it has screw shearing holes. These pliers are built of forged steel with induction-hardened cutting knives for maximum durability and long life. The hot-riveted joint also ensures smooth action and no handle wobble. This tool is spring-loaded for self-opening action and features Klein's dual-material Journeyman™ handles that provide a firm grip and added comfort.

"Multi-functional tools, like the All-Purpose Pliers, are becoming more popular among electricians," says senior product manager Gary Lalla. "These tools save time, save money, and save space in the tool belt."
