Klein Tools has come out with a new Klein Kurve wire stripper and crimper multi-tool, designed for anyone working with voice-data-voice wiring systems.
It can be used to twist, strip, cut, shear, and crimp wires, 10-26 AWG solid and 12-28 AWG stranded.
Made in the USA, the Klein Kurve wire stripper and crimper multi-tool is aimed at saving users time and the risk of unnecessary frustration that comes with having to switch back and forth between tools to complete a task.
It can crimp 10-22 AWG insulated and non-insulated terminals, B connectors, and 3M Scotchlok IDC connectors.
The tips are shaped to grab, pull, and bend even the smallest of wires, and the head is reinforced to reduce flex and keep the wire stripping holes true to their size.
There are built-in wire cutters, loops for bending wires, and shear holes for cutting 6-32 and 8-32 screws down to size.
Lastly, the handle grips are curved and double-dipped, for extra comfort.
I love, love LOVE Klein Kurve wire strippers. The double-dipped cushion is far easier on the hands than other gripped plier and cutter handles I’ve tried.
Hands down, I’d buy a pair of these without hesitation. I like the wide wire gauge range, and can probably make use of the crimpers too.
I also like that it looks better shaped for fitting into a back pocket or tool pouch, unlike older styles of electrical multi-tools.
