About This Product

The Klein Tools 69409 Line Splitter separates hot from neutral and ground wires on standard 120-Volt outlets so that current measurements can be made with a current clamp. Without the Line Splitter, the current clamp measures the load current going in both directions, effectively cancelling the measurement. The Line Splitter has a standard measurement section and ten-times multiplier section for use with less accurate or higher ranged clamp meters. It was designed for use with Klein Tools clamp meters but will also function with many other manufacturers' clamp meters.

Q:Can this be used to measure in rush current? Are there any lines splitters rated for 20 AMPs? What would happen if I used this to measure beyond 20 AMPs?

    Q:I need to measure the amperage of a hair drier that as soon as I plug it flips the braker. I thinks it draws more then 15A, maybe 20A or more. Will this work or is there another one or is better to buy a small extension cord and split the wires inside?

    A:  It sounds like your hair dryer definitely has a short in the heating element . If it trips a 20 breaker it's shorted. The tool would work fine if the hair dryer wasn't shorted.

      A:  Yes this will work as long as you have a clamp style ammeter.

        A:  The Line Splitter is designed to help measure current draw up to 15 A

          Q:How come it looks like in the example pic, my guy is measuring 49? amps from a 20 amp outlet. Much worry many concerning.

          A:  The Line Splitter provides 10x measurement mode which means the Clamp meter will display 10x actual current, e.g. actual current of 1.5A will be displayed as 15A on the clamp meter when using the line splitter.

            A:  You must divide the meter reading by 10. READ THE DIRECTIONS.

            A:  It will read 10X. Don't have mine with me but it is marked on the plastic I think.

            by|Apr 4, 2021

              A:  I don't have the example you are referring to, so I can't specifically address your concern. But I suspect is of the typical technique used to measure (i.e. splitter with a digital clamp on ammeter. To improve the splitter sensitivity and accuracy, the windings used to detect actual amperage are 10 times the actual current measured. If your splitter is like mine, examine the splitter closely you will see "X10" and "MAX 15A" embossed on it. This means the measurement displayed is actually 10 times higher than the actual current. So divide the ammeter reading by 10 to get the actual current.

                A:  Check the amperage scale on your meter. Also manufacture rate ed for 15amp max.

                Q:Can this line splitter be used with clamp meters of other brands?

                Answer This Question

                A:  Yes, no problem, just know that it's 10x, so a reading on your meter will need the decimal point moved over one.

                A:  Yes.

                by|Dec 21, 2020

                A:  Yes, the splitter just splits the lines. As long as your clamp fits of the sides, it will work.

                by|Jul 17, 2021

                A:  Yes, the Klein Tools Line Splitter can be used with clamp meters from other brands.

                    Nice & compact, stays in the outlet.
                    I bought this over the competition for several reasons, first... it's compact. Other line splitters have both 1x & 10X loops which make them bulky to carry around & sometimes hard to fit in tight spaces. The second reason is those double units are hard to keep in an AC outlet, they seem to fall out too easily. The third reason I bought the Klein was the name, Klein tools is a name I've trusted for many years. I've used this tool for figuring out current draw of different AC household items so I could figure out how large of a whole house generator I will need.

                    This is a "must have" tool if you have a clamp meter. This is the kind of tool, that once you own a clamp meter, you wonder how you ever did without it. It makes the measurement of both current and frequency far simpler and less intrusive than splitting wires, and repairing them. I found that measurements I wanted, but was loathe to take due to the cosmetic issue of cutting the insulation and/or wires and the hassle of splitting the lines, I now frequently do because it is so easy and non-intrusive. Although the literature with the tool does not mention it, this will measure both current and frequency. Frequency can be detected on a live circuit even if the device is not drawing current as well. The 10x reading has to always be remembered when selecting the range. The 120V water cooler plugged into the device shown in the picture went OL on the 4A setting of my Klein meter, but displayed nicely on the 40A and 400A settings. Be careful on precision assumptions. The same water cooler read 1.307A on the 40A range using the line splitter and 1.26A on the 400A setting a second later. The difference is less than a 1/10th of an amp. Putting the splitter in the case of my clamp meter was possible but tight. It would be nice if the case had a little more room to make it a bit easier, but it did fit and I always put the line splitter in the case as it is often used. It's very light, and although I've had this only 3 months, it's come in very handy on many occasions. It also seems quite durable. All in all, I highly recommend this tool for anyone with a clamp meter. I can't imagine not having it.

                    Love this line splitter. Use it with my Klein CL800. I also have a 3' 14/3 AWG appliance extension that I split the common mid cord. Not only is the splitter much easier to use, but more accurate and consistent readings due to the10X factor.

                    lets you use your clamp on ammeter easily, but doesn't have probe holes to check voltage like other line splitters do.
