Original Press Release:
New Journeyman(TM) Pump Pliers from Klein Combine Comfort and Durability
CHICAGO, IL - September 2002 - Klein Tools has added the Journeyman(TM) pump pliers to its premium line of Journeyman comfort-grip tools. With robust teeth for sure gripping action, the new pliers are designed for various applications. They feature six machined tongue-and-grooves for smooth adjustments up to a maximum of 1-3/4".
Like other Journeyman pliers, the pump pliers feature a state-of-the-art, dual-material handle design, giving the user a better grip without sacrificing tool strength or durability. The ultra-soft, outer-surface handle material combines comfort with a firm grip, while the harder, inner-surface handle material is designed for extra toughness in harsh work environments.
Other features include induction-hardened jaws for longer tool life; a tension-loaded joint to reduce handle wobble; a contoured thumb area for additional comfort and a positive feel; and color-coded yellow handles for quick tool identification. The new pump pliers measure 10" nominal size, and carry a lifetime warranty.
The Journeyman line from Klein offers everything a professional tradesman would expect from a Klein tool, with the addition of the contoured, cushioned handles. The tool feels more comfortable in the hand, and the non-slip handle surface allows for the firmer grip.
In addition to the new 10" pump pliers, Klein offers eight other styles of Journeyman pliers: 9" side-cutting (regular, crimping and tape-pulling); 8" diagonal-cuting (straight and angled-head): heavy-duty long-nose (with or without stripping hole): and high-leverage cable cutters.
