Klein Tools®
Chicago® Grip for PVC-Covered Conductors

Hi-Line Part-Number: KL1659-50

The Klein Tools 1659 Series PVC-Covered Chicago Grips have a specially machined serpentine jaw which allows an insulated conductor to be inserted through the jaws. This eliminates the need to strip insulation from the conductor first. Each grip is individually hand inspected and actuated for proper function. Grips are also rigorously tested and pulled to rated load to ensure the highest quality and reliability.
