“Given the wide variety of areas trade professionals work in, we recognize that their personal lighting needs vary wildly,” said Laura Ranieri, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “Developing these headlamps, Klein Tools provides the durability and flexibility all our customers are looking for, while giving each headlamp distinguishing features to help customers decide which one to take to the jobsite. Making the separate fabric strap also gives the option to use the headlamps without needing to attach to a hard hat or cap, and is compatible with multiple models, meaning users can switch lamps as different jobs may require different features.”
