The Journeyman series combines the power of Klein Tools with the comfort demands of the seasoned professional. The J2000-9NECR are high-leverage side-cutting connector crimping pliers, designed for heavy-duty materials like ACSR, screws, nails, and most other hardened wire. They can also crimp non-insulated connectors, lugs, and terminals with ease. A strategically located hot-riveted joint promises increased performance and a smoother range of motion when compared to standard pliers. With an induction-hardened cutting surface and cross-hatched jaws, this tool is guaranteed to work harder and last longer. A unique handle style features a hard inner material against a soft outer layer, allowing the user ultimate comfort without sacrificing precision or toughness. The color-coded handle is also specially tempered to help absorb the shock of repeated cuts.
