Klein® Tools Headlamp

Klein® Tools Designs a Headlamp with all the Must-Haves for the Jobsite

January 26, 2016 (Lincolnshire, IL) – Klein Tools (http://www.kleintools.com), for professionals since 1857, launched its new Illumination line, including a headlamp (Cat. No. 56220) designed specifically for electricians.  It features an anti-slip silicone strap that comes pre-adjusted to fit a hard hat.  The lamp has a 45-degree tilt, and can be used in spotlight mode (150 lumens, six run hours) or floodlight mode (50 lumens, 10 run hours).  It is also impact and water resistant.

“Most headlamps used on jobsites now are designed for activities like camping and hunting,” said Laura Ranieri, senior product manager. “They often include extra features like colored LED’s or strobe lights that electricians don’t use. We designed ours to include essential features used daily by electricians and uniquely secured it with a silicone strap which stays put and won’t stretch out.”
