Utility tools: Klein Tools adds five new products to its Tradesman Pro Organizers line of tool bags. Innovative features on these new bags include a removable LED light and a tool tote with a protective cover.
The Lighted Tool Bag (Cat. No. 55431) features a twist on/twist off LED light that can be positioned to illuminate inside the bag or the workspace. The Work Light (#55437), which is also sold separately, has a swivel hook and magnet for hands free use. The Lighted Tool Bag has 31 pockets for plenty of tool storage, a bright orange interior to find tools faster, and a durable molded base that protects from the elements.
The 17 in. Tool Tote (Cat. No. 55432) has an attached cover that protects tools and a movable metal handle bar with rubber grip. There are 17 pockets, plus a wide open section for drills and zipper bags. It also features a molded base and bright orange interior.
The Tradesman Pro Drill Pouch (Cat No. 5183), which fits most impact and battery drills, has a strap closure to keep the drill in place. It has plenty of storage for a variety of drill bits and attaches to most tool belts up to 2 in. wide.
The Tradesman Pro Hard Cases come in two sizes: Medium (Cat. No. 5184) and Large (Cat. No. 5189). They feature a hard outer shell that protects tools, meters and tech devices.
Improvements to the six original Tradesman Pro Organizers include lock bars for the Extreme and Ultimate Electrician’s Tool Bags to keep the bags propped open. The popular backpack is now taller to accommodate long screwdrivers and a large zipper pocket was added for storing small parts and tools. The 8 in. and 10 in. totes and shoulder pouch now feature fully molded bases for better stability and protection from the elements.
“We do a lot of jobsite research before we begin design on new tool bags,” says product manager Linda Rolfe. “To upgrade our top selling original six Tradesman Pro tool bags, we surveyed more than 4,000 electricians and incorporated their feedback to make these bags even more durable and functional including many unique features.”
