Review of the Klein 11061 Wire Stripper


The Klein 11061…. I just received the Klein strippers today and I will also have to show a comparisons with the Neiko 01924A later.  The build quality is really great the grip handle is split like the Neiko strippers but the Klein’s grip seem nicer.  The Klein seem like a better engineered product.  (I also found my original “yellow no name strippers” so I will need to show those also.)

So You Like Strippers? I Love Strippers Also! :)


So I have liked strippers for the past 30 years.  My first stripper I can still remember her…. She was yellow and black.  She lasted the longest…. but the blade fell off somewhere.  I assume this stripper was a not a brand name because I purchased it from Kmart of all places.  My second a red Neiko 01924A which lasted almost 5 years.  My Neiko’s plastic red handle would keep falling off.  (I guess I could have duct taped it? or #$@% it…. This tool just got super annoying to use…. sorry for the language!  LOL 🙂  The handle was cheap and just not ergonomic in the hand. )  Today I got a tip while talking to a friend…. We were talking about strippers of course.  🙂  He recommended the Klein Tools 11061 stripper.  So I purchase the Klein as my replacement…. Maybe it will last 5-25 years?  🙂

BTW The Klein 11061 cost $22.05 and the Neiko 01924A cost $16.58…. So it is really not worth getting a cheaper version if you plan on using the tool.

This is a really great type of stripper to have if you ever have a lots of cables to strip…. Alone with a good pair of wire cutters (The built in cutters on these strippers are super annoying to use more then once or twice.  So because this tool is really used for lots of cable cutting just do not think about it.  🙂 )  Great stripper design though for lots of cable stripping.

I do have different style wire strippers in my bag though.  These are better for working on less wires.  These are Klein Tools 11055…. I also have a smaller style and a couple different brands actually.  I believe I have 2 of the Klein actually?  🙂

Klein Glow in the Dark Tools or Hi-Viz

I guess I a am little late knowing about glow in the dark tools? But apparently Klein has a whole line of them…. Check out the LINK
They have a video, pliers, strippers, cutters, screwdrivers etc…. a pretty good line. Interesting…. I do not own any though. I could see them being useful is certain applications. But wrenches and sockets would be more useful! LOL 🙂 Also I am not sure I ever have lose any this way? But just leaving them behind could be a problem. I would like cheap tracking…. something like this I guess but somehow a sticker? LOL 🙂 LINK

Klein Tools Professional Alcohol Opening Device the 98002BT Bottle Opener – Picture Review :)

klein98002BTklein98002BT-2klein98002BT-3klein98002BT-6klein98002BT-4
This alcohol opening device is made here in the good old USA…. where basically nothing is made now. I bet my Craftsman alcohol opening device is not made here? It is not that old. 🙂  It is a pretty nice tool if you are an alcoholic and want to put this in your tool bag like me.  JK!  LOL 🙂  It is pretty nice…. it seems a little light but nice enough.

This is really my only issue with the Klein bottle opener…. you have to “always use approved eye protection” when using the opener. So you can not use this around you buddies. You will look like a welder.  🙂 Also “do not use to pry or chisel”…. Wwwwhat?  Really?

So to sum up my review of the Klein Tools 98002BT…. it works fine if you can not read warnings! 🙂 If you can read…. this bottle opener can not be used to “pry” your cap off your beverage.  Also you MUST “ALWAYS USE APPROVED EYE PROTECTION”…. making this the stupidest device ever…. I mean ever! You could probably purchase a bottle opener from China which you could pry a cap off without eye protection?

Okay…. this is my second set. Which is not in the best shape. 🙂 I am going to sell both of my Klein #630 nut driver sets on some auction site?  🙂  I decided I would post both sets of pictures of what each set ended up looking like when I got rid of them.  I do really prefer the longer shanks of the Klein Tools Inc 647M which are the nut drivers I use all the time now.

I believe this is the replacement for the 630 that I am selling? Klein Tools 631M Magnetic Tip Nut Driver Set 3″ Hollow Shanks

New Picture Review of my Custom LeatherCraft 1534 16 Tote Tool Bag – 29 POUNDS! :)

I purchased this Custom LeatherCraft Tote Bag really just to hold power tools…. I really do not use power tools very often.  So this bag mainly sits in my truck.  I use my impact wrench the most though.  I also keep my collect of drill bit holders and a couple of my Klein Tools 5539CPAK Canvas Zipper Bags which actually got bad reviews on amazon?  But I purchased the bags anyway and they seem to be made as well as my Klein Tools 5139 12-1/2-Inch Canvas Zipper Bag?  Which have lasted at least 10 years now.  The 5539 are smaller but that was not a surprise and I wanted the colors to be able to know what was in the bags.  I also purchased a Greenlee 0158-14 Canvas Zipper Bag for my Greenlee Nut Driver Set and the bag seems to be well made also.

The canvas Klein tool bag….. what I really wanted.

klein tool bag

The Klein Tools 5102-24 Canvas Tool Bag, 24-Inch…. this is the bag I really wanted.  My main problem was the “Moisture-resistant, vinyl bottom and lower sides”….  I really have to have waterproof.  Even though I have no clue if Klein makes this bag in the USA…. I would support Klein over other bag manufacturers just because they support the USA.  Unlike the bag I ended up purchasing.
