About 114,000 Digital clamp meters have been recalled by Klein Tools, of Lincolnshire, Ill. The meters can fail to give an accurate voltage reading, resulting in the operator falsely believing the electrical power is off, posing shock, electrocution and burn hazards. This recall involves Klein Tools digital clamp meters used to detect electrical current in wiring. Model numbers CL110, CL210, CL310 and CL110KIT with date codes 0815U-A1, 1015U-A1, 1115U-A1, 1215U-A1, 0116U-A1, 0216U-A1 and 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.
The meters were sold at Home Depot and other hardware stores, industrial distributors and electrical wholesalers nationwide from November 2015 through April 2016 for between $55 and $75. 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.
