Press release date: February 14, 2017

Klein Tools (www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, introduces two pocket-sized solutions that provide full-size visibility on the job.

  • LED penlight for up-close lighting in dim areas
  • Laser pointer pinpoints objects that are out of reach
  • Glow ring tip charges while the light is on and allows for easy retrieval in the dark
  • Durable, IP54 dust- and water-resistant tool, with a 10-foot drop rating
  • Pocket clip for easy, convenient access
  • Aluminum body with cushion-grip handle

Flashlight with Worklight

  • Bright, focused flashlight and broadcasting worklight in one tool
  • Strong magnet for secure, hands-free illumination
  • Glow ring tip charges while the light is on and allows for easy retrieval in the dark

“A primary challenge for many electricians is working in dimly lit or dark conditions,” says Laura Ranieri, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “Our new illumination solutions provide electricians with reliable visibility on complex jobs, helping to reduce mistakes caused by lack of brightness or tough environments. The new Inspection Penlight with Laser and Flashlight with Worklight are also easy to identify in dark areas, thanks to a glow ring tip that charges while the light is on so that it’s easier to find in the dark.”
