Klein Tools | Product Recall<br>NCVT-1 Non-Contact Voltage Tester

Klein Tools is issuing a voluntary product recall on the NCVT1 in their Test and Measurement Line due to a potential safety hazard. No injuries have been reported from the use of these testers, but Klein Tools is recalling them out of an abundance of caution.

Why is There a Recall?

It has recently come to Klein Tools’ attention that one of their products — the NCVT-1 NONCONTACT VOLTAGE TESTER — has a potential safety issue that Klein Tools would like to rectify. The on/off button of the NCVT-1 is intended to be pressed down and then released. If the button remains depressed during the power-on or power-off cycle, the tip of the tool remains illuminated in green, indicating the tool is "ready to detect voltage," when it is not.

These affected products are sold in the following SKU numbers:
NCVT1 — 69149
NCVT1A — MPZ00052R
NCVT1E — MPZ00001
NCVT1SEN — 80018
NCVT1EP — 80023

This recall involves Klein Tools Non-Contact Voltage Tester with model numbers NCVT1 bearing date codes ending in H7. The product was also sold in variations and kits listed above, all bearing date codes ending in H7.

Please stop using your NCVT-1 NONCONTACT VOLTAGE TESTER, even if you have not experienced any issues.

Please contact Klein Tools to return your unit at no charge for replacement.
