Klein Tools is recalling the CL110, CL210, CL310 and CL110KIT Digital Clamp Meters with the following date codes: 0875U-A1, 1015U-A1, 115U-A1, 1215U-A1, 0116U-A1, 0216U-A1, 0316U-A1 are included in this recall. “Klein Tools” and the model number are printed on the front of the clamp meters. The date code is printed on the back. The meters are black with a backlit LCD display and an orange trigger and clamp mechanism. The meters are rated CAT III 600 volts and measure voltage up to 600 volts and alternating current up to 400 amps. Only the meter in the CL110KIT is included in the recall. These meters are being recalled due to a fastener that can work itself loose overtime, potentially leading to a false reading when measuring voltage. This issue could indicate a reading of zero on energized systems resulting in the operator falsely believing the electrical power is off posing shock, electrocution and burn hazards. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled digital clamp meters and contact Klein Tools to receive postage paid labels to return the clamp meters for free replacement units.
