You need to pass a ContextFactory which provides the client certificate:
reactor.connectSSL(host, port, factory, contextFactory)
web.client.getPage, for example, takes a contextFactory as a keyword argument.
One way to create the context factory, with the key and certificate
stored in files:
clientCtxFactory = ssl.DefaultOpenSSLContextFactory(keyPath, certPath)
