Klein Recalls Non-Contact Voltage Testers
The CPSC says the testers can fail to detect voltage creating a shock hazard.
June 9, 2021—According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the on/off button on the Klein NCVT-1 non-contact tester can remain depressed during the power on or power off cycle, causing the tester to work improperly. Consumers testing electrical sources could fail to be warned of the presence of live voltage and be shocked or electrocuted as a result. Models with a date code ending in H7 are affected.
