I think it's more along the lines of them signing exclusive deals with the big manufacturers. Lowes went with Greenlee and kicked Klein out, Home Depot went with Klein and kicked Greenlee out.

I went to Lowe's in Canandaigua NY and did not see any Klein tools. I think they phased them out a few months ago. It's really too bad that the management of the big box stores have no clue as to what products they should carry. Klein is to the electrician as Rigid is to a plumber.

No Lowes around me has the linesmans in stock. Asked the lady and she called in an inquiry and they've got 6 of each style on backorder. Called the shipping warehouse and they warehouse hasn't recieved them in yet. Person in the warehouse said that they're waiting on the shipment from China. FROM CHINA??!?!?! I'm hoping he was just mistaken about the place of shipment origin.

I'm ordering a pair from AC Tool supply, I'm no longer waiting.

H e has to be. It says they are made in Germany. I saw them at Lowe's the other day and decided to give them a try. They seem to be much better quality than Klein. They are also insulated.
