ERIC’S TOP TIP
Precise wire stripping in your hands
Klein Tools is taking the guesswork out of stripping solid, stranded and Romex® wire with its new self-adjusting wire stripper/ cutter, ideal for use on panels and other applications where different types and sizes of wires are installed together. The tool’s innovative stripping head adjusts to strip 4.0mm2 - 0.50mm2 solid wire, 2.5mm2 - 0.34mm2 stranded wire and 12/2 and 14/2 Romex wire, so one tool can do it all without any manual adjustment required. The stripper/cutter has an adjustable stopper to control the length of the core strip, and a tensioning thumb wheel for the precise stripping of smaller gauge wire. The stylish black and blue handles have grooved grips for added comfort, and a wire cutter is conveniently tucked away in the handle so there’s no need to swap tools when cutting is required.
