Klein Tools recalled 114,000 digital meter clamps sold at Home Depot and other hardware stores around the United States.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the meters can give inaccurate readings of zero voltage, causing the operator to falsely believe there's no electrical power going to the item being checked. Klein Tools said that could lead to the operator being shocked, electrocuted or burned.

The recall involves the CL110, CL210, CL310 and CL110KIT models. They were sold between November 2015 and last month, for $55-$75.
