In April, a panel of 12 judges - including electrical professionals representing the design/engineering, contracting, and facilities/maintenance industries selected by the EC&M editorial staff from a pool of the magazine’s readers - reviewed and determined Klein Tools’ demolition screwdrivers were the top entry in its hand-tool category.

This month, the demolition screwdriver went on to win the 2013 Silver award - second runner up - for EC&M 2013 product of the year. This round was voted on by EC&M readers through an online poll.
