Nothing is easier for stripping wire insulation than these cutters. Squeezing the handles grips the wire under one jaw while the other jaw cleanly cuts and pulls the insulation free.
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.
