The EC&M 2023 Product of the Year is a significant standard of achievement for manufacturers, and we are honored to carry them in our stores.

The Best of the Best

The EC&M Product of The Year Competition recognizes excellence and innovation in new product development and design—and these three products are no exception. These products have been recognized for their outstanding performance, quality, and reliability. 

Let’s take a closer look at their innovative features.

First up, the Klein Tools Advanced Circuit Tracer Kit is an essential tool for electricians. The kit contains a device that can identify the right circuit breaker in seconds, saving a lot of time and effort. Additionally, it can also trace wires and cables and identify the voltage drop between any two points.

Next, the Klein Tools 7-in-1 Impact Flip Socket with Handle is another handy tool for professionals in the field. It is designed to work with impact drivers and wrenches and can accommodate seven different fastener sizes. The socket can flip to drive hex, square, and 12-point fasteners. It also has a hollow design that allows for the clearance of threaded rods and long bolts, which is a huge plus. With its versatile design and easy-to-use features, the gadget has become a popular choice for professionals.

Lastly, the Milwaukee Tool M12™ Cable Stapler is a game-changer for those who work with cables and wires. It is the industry’s first cordless cable stapler and can drive up to 1,500 staples per charge. The tool has an integrated sequential and contact actuation trigger for quick and accurate fastening. It also has an adjustable belt hook and LED work light for convenience.
