Unlike other strippers, the risk of breakage is eliminated because the wire is clamped securely. The tool self-adjusts between 24 and 10 American Wire Gauge and has an adjustable stop to leave up to 3/4" of exposed wire. The handles have a series of crimping notches for insulated, non-insulated, and ignition terminals.
Often perceived as a specialty tool, this stripper should be part of any basic household tool set. It represents excellent value for a tool that is not widely available at a reasonable price.
