Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product. Needs improvement The insulated stripper is more expensive than the cheaper, non-insulated one, but the cheaper stripper (Klein model 11054) has a thumb lock that keeps the jaws in place. This model comes with an inconvenient and useless jaw retainer. Klein needs to add the thumb lock to this one. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I purchased this item to refrain from be electrocuted When I opened the item, the first thing I noticed was the quality. I really like the insulation on the handle and and the added protection toward the top of the pliers, it really helps to make sure you hands don't slip and touch the metal. October 9, 2012
