My Knipex diagonals are the red & yellow Insulated-grip 8" 74 06 200

Very good cutters. High leverage. Clean cut.

Yes.

I have the Insulated 09 08 240.

Be sure to get the -09 series, in either of 4 grip styles: red vinyl, blue/red cushion, red/yellow 1000V Insulated or red-dipped Insulated).

The -09 series are the 9 1/4" ones. They're called 'American-style' and are identical in size to Kleins.

And, as always with Knipex, excellent quality.

I'd recommend the 09 02 240. I just bought them and LOVE them, they are the closest thing to the Klein Journeyman 2000 series, but the fit and finish is much better IMO.

$38 at Chad's Toolbox, can't beat that.

I've only used them for a short time, but they are solid from what i could tell. I also read other people say that the handles stay on.

FWIW, I was never bothered by the handles pulling off. A biker gave me the tip to use hairspray, that's what they use to keep the grips on their handlebars, it works pretty well.

Hey Charlie. I see that you are new to the forum and I would personally like to say that you debate and argue like a true gentleman. Nothing gets out of hand or personal with you. Its a delighfull change that I wish more fellas in here would adopt. Welcome to the forum. " You make me want to be a better poster.."

Why are the molded grip pliers cheaper than the dipped grip pliers?

I have wondered that for ahwile now myself. We have never received a single complaint in almost 2 years from a Knipex order. So I do not think either comes off. If they do we have just never heard of it. I personally like the two tone look. But looks don't mean anything.

If you give me the part number for the dipped I will adjust our price.
