Product Overview

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.
  • Allows the measuring of current draw up to 15 Amp without splitting the load's power cord
  • For use with all Klein clamp meters
  • Can be used to perform voltage checks with standard multimeter probes
  • Provides 10X measurement mode
  • For North American-style outlets only

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

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

Only the appliance load at the out it's plugged into. This is not the entire circuit as measured at the breaker. Use a loop style clamp on meter at the panel to do that. Do not do this unless you fully understand the dangers lurking inside your breaker panel uncovered.

How can the meter (in the ad picture) read 49.1 Amps?

Your probably clamped onto the ×10 part of the splitter or it only reads that way . This is used for low amperage so the meter can make an accurate reading. So if its reading 49.1a its actually 4.91a. I made the same mistake in my early years, hope this was helpful

Why doesn,t Home Depot sell the line splitters in the stores they sell the clamp meters? I live in Phoenix.

I have 6 Home Depot's within 45 min driving time from my house and they all carry different items, when I asked the store managers why, he said that different items sell better in one location than another & it's up to the store manger what to put on the shelves. Each store most likely has a limit as to how much inventory they can have on hand, so that might play into it as well.

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.

This tool should be a minimum requirement as an accessory to Klein Clamp meters. Simple to use - plug your appliance into the splitter, then splitter into the wall outlet. Your clamp meter can now record very accurate AC current measurements from your appliances.

In top 5 of tools I must have in my electrical tool bag. Right with my test meter, strippers, outlet tester, test probe, ECT. I would recommend to an experienced electrician that's been doin electrical work for 20 years or a soccer mom that just wants to make sure she is going as green as she can get by making sure her appliance's aren't using to many amp things she read about in a magazine. Plus it's almost indestructible! All around one of the tools I wish I would of found along time ago. Get one!
