Klein® Tools Expands Its Test & Measurement Accessories Line with Universal Premium Silicone Test Lead Set

Silicone-insulated leads perform better in extreme temperatures

June 24, 2014 (Lincolnshire, IL) - Klein Tools (http://www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, expands its Test & Measurement accessories product line with a new Universal Premium Silicone Test Lead Set. These silicone-insulated test leads withstand more extreme temperatures - up to 2X the operating temperature range - than PVC test leads. In addition, the more durable banana plug and probe strain reliefs as well as the built-in wear indicator on probe wires, make these leads tougher and more reliable than regular test lead.


"With the frigid temperatures we have experienced over the past few seasons, a more resilient test lead set is a requirement in any tradesman's tool bag," states Sean O'Flaherty, senior product manager of Test & Measurement at Klein Tools. "By utilizing Klein's new Universal Premium Silicone Test Lead Set, with twice the operating temperature range of PVC test leads, you can get the job done in environments with extreme temperatures, particularly when working outdoors in severely cold weather."
