Over at Home Depot, they brought out a display packed with these Klein Tool deals for an early Black Friday 2020 sale.
Klein electrical hand tool deals would typically be incorporated into Home Depot’s PRO Black Friday sales event, but that’s not going on this year, at least not officially.
Klein Testing Tool Kit Deal
This Klein tool set, model ET45KIT3 , comes with an ET45 electronic voltage tester, RT210 GFCI outlet tester, and
NCVT-2 NCVT3P non-contact voltage tester.
Following is a breakdown of how much it would cost to get these tools separately, at the time of this posting.
- ET45: $9 via Amazon
- RT210: $9.60 via Amazon
NCVT-2: $20 via Amazon
- NCVT3P: $29 via Amazon
Home Depot says this is a $51 value, but I calculate the street price to be roughly $38 in testing tools that are discounted to $25 as part of this test kit. Update: The correct non-contact voltage tester bumps the value up a bit. $51 is starting to look more accurate.
Well, they’re supposed to be discounted to $25 – I don’t know why, the website is still showing this set being priced at $30.
Klein Screwdriver Set Deal
This set comes with a 32557 heavy duty multi-bit screwdriver, 32800 6-in-1 multi-nut driver, and 32581 4-in-1 electronics screwdriver.
- 32557: $15 via Amazon
- 32800: $28 via Amazon
- 32581: $10 via Amazon
At the time of this posting, all of the tools in this kit add up to a $53 price tag at Amazon, and I’m seeing the same prices elsewhere. Home Depot says this set is valued at $49.
While the testing tool set is a good price at either of its advertised prices, the screwdriver set is an even better deal. At $30, you’re basically buying the nut driver and getting the other tools practically for free.
The testing tool kit has to be ordered for in-store pickup, the screwdrivers are available for in-store pickup or free shipping with a $45+ order.
Price: $25 for the test kit, $30 for the tool set

In some years, there are two rounds of Klein hand tool deals, but it doesn’t seem that’s what we’ll see this year. If these are the only Klein electrical tool deals for the 2020 holiday shopping season, at least they’re universally appealing in nature. I do miss the wire stripper, lineman pliers, and multi-bit screwdriver bundle set deals though.

Nuts. Wish I had seen this sooner. I just ordered the Klein Tools Electrical Test Kit 69149 from Amazon last week and opened it Tuesday. While that’s a upgraded kit, I trashed all of packaging or I might have returned it for this kit from HD.
Either way, just the latest great find and post of all the ongoing deals! Thanks Stuart.
That actually looks like a good deal too!
Amazon Link for Klein kit w/ multimeter.
The multimeter sells for $30 by itself, and that kit is $36.
As for these Klein deals – I don’t think they were out for most of last week – I only first spotted them last Friday.
Thanks for making me feel better! Haha
I bought that same kit last year. Here in Canada it was a Black Friday special. It’s not a top-of-the-line multimeter, but it is excellent compared to anything else I found in the price range.
My only “gripe” (and it’s a minor one) is the method of securing the test leads for storage. I can never get the cords wrapped up and the leads secured in the slots in the back neatly. Well, I can, but I have to wrap and re-wrap it a few times to figure out the perfect way. There must be a better way.
I’m surprised Klein is sell a non-autoranging multimeter.
Probably a price point model. No harm in that for a quick/backup/first/basic meter.
I’d rather have TrueRMS on my meter than auto-ranging — accuracy vs ease of use.
For $35-40 I can get TrueRMS off brand or for $60 get a good Amprobe for around the house. I used to use Fluke and Amprobe in the field and I’ve seen enough “stupid” to not skimp even on a home owner meter.
The Klein outlet tester & voltage pen is the bee’s knees. I’d give them to a first year guy in a second. Everyone should have a couple of those around the house.
I too dislike auto ranging meters. ANd I think a person should learn on a standard set range meter anyway as you should have a read idea of what you are checking.
True RMS however is a necessity. Home repair, auto repair, aircraft repair. One meter I use at work that doesn’t have true RMS is a DC only device for very fancy electronics.
and I don’t use it much it’s just neat to see.
Mike (the other one)
The test kit comes with the NCVT3P, which has the flashlight.
Thank you, I made the correction! Home Depot’s page lists the -2 model in the top description, then the -3 down below. But I should have recognized which one this is.
Question. Your picture of the Klein display. Is that the way you found it, or did you mess it up for effect?
If that is the way you found it, for the sake of you audience, why didn’t you organize it before taking the picture to post? The sign is crooked, product out of position, it would have taken seconds.
The state of this display reflects very poorly on the quality of the Home Depot employees and of the local customers.
My parents always told me to leave a place better than you found it. I would never shop in a store, handle the merchandise and then leave it in disorder.
Sure, he could have straightened it. If it reflects one way or the other on HD, the store’s employees, or it’s customers, though, is their responsibility, and accurate.
Your last statement also slightly implies that he might have left a mess, which I doubt was the case.
No, I didn’t mess up the display for effect – who would do that. That’s how I found it, and it bugged me.
I usually do clean things up – move misplaced tools out of the way or what-not. But I didn’t have hand sanitizer with me, and with COVID spikes in the state, I didn’t want to touch anything while I was still taking my phone in and out of my pocket for photos.
After my walk-around, I did my purchasing and sanitized my hands in the car.
Would I have fixed the display board otherwise? I might have tried to push it down slightly, but not beyond that. I tried to peek at the inner markings of a holiday gift center board once, and couldn’t get it to sit right after that. I don’t like creating more work for associates than need be.
I worked at a supermarket as a teenager, and as a cashier I would watch people put anything and everything into the magazine racks. “Sir, ma’am, if you don’t want that raw chicken, ice cream hot chicken broiler, milk, etc, please just hand it to me.”
I’ll still see this when I go shopping. A bottle of olive oil in the cereal aisle? Not the worst. Perishables in non-perishable areas? Sometimes I’ll see meat or dairy in a beverage cooler, but if they get the item all the way to checkout, just give it to the cashier for throw-backs!!
Similar with clothes, back when I shopped for anything in-store. I’d try to fold back what I looked at.
If you enter a store and leave without buying anything, nobody should be the wiser. When you eat at a food court, clean up after yourself.
A year or two ago, we were at a food court and one of my kids spilled chocolate milk on the floor. Some older passerby criticized me for getting napkins to clean it up. “Don’t do that, it’s *their* job” as they pointed to the worker going around and cleaning tables. I went to a fast food restaurant a few years ago, and there were chicken bones left all over a table, and it disgusted me.
So no, you won’t ever finding me messing things up on purpose. And if I do make a mess I can’t clean – or set off a tool box alarm by just picking it up – I’ll apologize and find an associate who can help.
Be aware that the multi-nut driver (Klein 32800) does not, for some strange reason, include a 1/2″ driver. It goes from 7/16″ to 9/16″ without stopping in the middle.
PS. Other than the the missing 1/2″ nut driver size, these tools are great – they are my constant companions.
Last a Thursday when these deals were first officially out, here in Hawaii the Klein electrical tester set was $24.88. Yesterday I saw that it was up to $29.88. Not sure why.
