Klein Tools introduces Klaw pump pliers with multiple points of contact
By Anthony Capkun
February 14, 2013 – Klein Tools introduced a new line of pump pliers featuring a curved jaw designed to grasp with multiple points of contact (as compared to standard straight-jaw pump pliers) to provide better gripping power and torque. The Klein Klaw pump pliers are available in two styles: Quick-Adjust and Classic. Quick-Adjust has a pushbutton, quick ratchet feature that allows you to easily adjust the plier to any position. Both styles are compact and narrow for better access in small or hard-to-reach spaces. The gripping surfaces of the jaw also have specially hardened teeth for positive gripping and reduced wear. In addition, a special groove at the tip of the jaw is designed for holding nails.
