I have no idea why and was only referring to the crimpers in the link you posted and the specs on those specific crimpers:


Klein 1006 Crimper-Cutter
  • For crimping non-insulated solderless terminals
  • Accommodates wire from No. 10 to 22 AWG
  • Specially hardened wire cutters in nose
  • Length 9-3/4"
  • Lifetime guaranteed ~ made in U.S.A.
My guess is that the ones you linked to are not the same as the ones you actually own??
