New Klein High Visibility Tools


http://fandfindustrial.com/blog/new-klein-high-visibility-tools/

Klein Tools recently announced via YouTube that they’ll soon be rolling out a new line of Klein High Visibility Tools. Although not much is known about the new line of “hi-vis” tools, it appears that the handles have been dipped in a phosphorescent coating allowing them to “glow in the dark” for a period of time after being exposed to light.

Klein has not yet announced a release date for its new line of high visibility tools but we’re certainly looking forward to getting our hands on them. The new glowing handles should have countless benefits for electricians and others who often work in dark or dimly lit worksites.

Mine cobra strippers have the little glow in the dark ring and it does come in handy when you loose them in the attic insulation. lol

Yeah that's what I was thinking.. charge them up nice and bright before heading into the attic.. then if one drops into the fluffy abyss, you can kill your lights and hopefully find them.

I've killed a lot of time digging around for tools and material that disappeared up there.

Coudnt tell you how many times I've left strippers or linemen's in a suspended ceiling. This would be great to help locate them xD

Yeah... I've dropped flashlights into blow-in insulation while they were turned on and still couldn't see them to find them.

I think it's a neat novelty. But odds are, if it's dark enough to see them, you'll have a flashlight anyway.

To glow or not to glow that is the question

Oh damn. Well there goes my idea.

I'm sure Klein will sell millions of these tools to tools like me who think it'll be visible in insulation. :laughing:

Better to get the one that has an actual light powered by a battery.

It's a gimmick for D I Y ers.

Just like the kleins with camo handles !
If it had a maple leaf on it would it be a gimmick? :no:

It says support our troops on it too, that means that when you buy these pliers you are AMERICA! WOOO AMERICA #1 woo hooo, love it or leave it! My pliers are sooooo patriotic. :laughing:
