Klein Tools is searching for the world’s oldest pair of Klein Side-Cutting Pliers, and will pay handsomely for it. Customers can see if their pliers are eligible by determining if their tool is the standard side-cutting type, bears the original Klein trademark and has ‘code markings’ that will be found inside the handle. Photos of your pliers and a completed form may be mailed or uploaded to Klein’s website. For specifications/details, visit kleintools.com/oldestpliers.

The winning pliers will be selected by Klein Tools’ engineering team based on requirements. The tool owner will receive $2,500 in cash and approximately $2,500 in new Klein Tools. All photo entries must be uploaded to the website or mailed and postmarked by May 31, 2013.
