Original Press Release:
Klein Tools' New Two-Piece Competition Set Features Free Die-Cast Klein Tools #26 Indy Race Car And Dan Wheldon Trading Card
CHICAGO - May 2005 - Klein Tools is offering a limited edition promotional two-piece competition tool set that features a high-leverage cable cutter (Cat. No. 63050) and an 8" high-leverage diagonal-cutting pliers (Cat. No. D228-8). This special offer also includes a 1/64-scale die-cast replica of the #26 Klein Tools Indy race car in addition to a Dan Wheldon trading card, the Klein Tools-sponsored driver of its race car.
Perfect for confined working spaces, the high-leverage cable cutter has cable-gripping shear-type jaws that allow for precise, one-hand shearing action. The cutter's beveled jaw tip provides proper mating and shearing action, which protects leading jaw edges.
The high-leverage diagonal-cutting pliers provide 36 percent greater cutting power than that of other pliers' design. A shorter jaw and beveled cutting edge permit close cutting of wire. The pliers' induction-hardened cutting knives provide longer service life, and the plastic-dipped handles provide comfort.
Both products are designed with hot-riveted joints, ensuring smooth action and no handle wobble, and can be stored in most tool pouches.
Dan Wheldon won the 2005 season opener at the Homestead-Miami Indy 300. In 2004, Wheldon placed second at the Indy League® IndyCar® Series points championship. In the same year, Wheldon won three races and ended the season with an IRL record-tying seven consecutive top-four finishes. Wheldon was the 2003 IndyCar Series Rookie of the Year.
