No, it does not say you can use Kleins. You know what, I use them every day.
Occassionally I do buy Ideal's pliers but they are like $10-$15 more than the Klein so I usually go with the D2000-9NECR.
Yes, they look exactly the same and do exactly the same job. The fact that it is impossible to remove one of those crimps tells me it is doing as good of, or better, job than a greenie.
I don't let things like this bother me. I am very conscientious in my work and if I felt at all uncomfortable with anything I was doing I wouldn't do it.

One question for the "perfect" the "safest" the "electricions who walk on water".....what tool do you use to chip brown coat out of your exterior boxes?
Do roll out 50' of cord and use your roto/chisle hammer.

The Mechanic who lost his eye would still have it if he was wearing saftey glasses! Stupid is right!

I'm not condoning unsafe practices but, either you or your employees DO usetools like this in the manner described.
I do. I keep an old square shank just for this use. So do alot of electricians.
I use my Ideal crimp tool to crimp T&B Sta-Kons.(ohhh, dont tell the T&B people)

The first thing you must realize is that there is more than one way to do a job and yours is just another way.
