Press release date: Oct 04, 2017

Oct. 4, 2017 (Lincolnshire, Ill.) – Klein Tools (www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, introduces three new convenient HVAC products, the NCVT4-IR, ET120, as well as slim-jaw and reversible adjustable wrenches. The NCVT-4IR voltage tester provides non-contact determination of AC voltage with a built-in infrared thermometer. The ET120 Combustible Gas Leak Detector provides visual and audible alerts in the presence of combustible gases. The variable sizes of adjustable, slim jaw wrenches are ideal for tight space, wrench-over-wrench applications, and the reversible wrench easily changes to address pipes and round fasteners. This line expansion increases convenience while HVAC professionals are on the job.
