Our take on the S&G Wire Cutter/Stripper Tool

by Buck Pomerantz

This indispensable tool strips wire (12- to 22-gauge) with one pull of the trigger and features a pistol-type grip and a narrow nose for working comfortably in even tight spaces. You can adjust a strip-length guide to measure and strip off the exact amount of insulation you want.

You can even use this tool to splice into a wire without cutting it. The stripper adjusts automatically to solid or stranded wire. A second blade cuts your wire cleanly. The grip locks closed for safe storage. Warranty: lifetime.

Great Wire Stripper/cutter

Written By A, Richmond, VA on Wednesday, August 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Before I installed my head unit in my 2007 Xterra, I had no experience whatsoever with any kind of electrical/mechanical activities. This product is easy as anything to use, and I highly recommend it for anyone who wants an easy and cheap way to marry wires together. I used this stripper/cutter in conjunction with some Posi-Products connectors, and they work excellently together.
Pros:
Easy to learn to use, sharp blades
Cons:
Not very ergonomic, but that doesn't matter much

Works like a charm.

Written By Phil R, Mandeville, Louisiana on Saturday, March 15, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Does what it's supposed to do. This isn't a tool for stripping 8 gauge wiring, but for smaller 12 and smaller I found this to save a lot of time and an extra hand.
Pros:
Consistent, one-handed stripping of smaller gauge wiring. Cuts perfect length for soldering or crimp on connectors.
Cons:
Feels a little flimsy being plastic construction, but better that and be non-conductive.

Great tool

Written By Danb, Palmer, Ak on Tuesday, January 14, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great tool, made my install much easier. I like how you can set the depth you strip too. The cutter part was by the handle and less useful in tight spaces.
Pros:
Great strippers.
Cons:
Not the best clippers.

This item made my work really easy. I bought the S&G Wire Cutter/Stripper Tool to help with my audio system upgrade and my work was so simplified. There is a wire cutter at the bottom that i almost forgot to use that worked really well.
Pros:
easy to use.
Cons:
none so far.

S&G Wire Cutter/Stripper Tool

Written By Brad, Houston, TX on Wednesday, November 06, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Purchased the S & G Wire Cutter/Stripper Tool along with AudioQuest X2 Speaker Cable (14 gauge). The S & G Wire Cutter/Stripper Tool could not strip or cut this speaker cable. Plastic nature of tool made it feel like it was going to break with every try. After a few attempts resorted to a real wire cutter/stripper tool from my tool box. Maybe it works on small thin wire, but I would not purchase this product based upon my experience..
Pros:
None.
Cons:
Would not perform its function on AudioQuest X2 Speaker Cable (14 gauge).

Does the trick!

Written By TimK, Coatesville, PA on Monday, May 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought this tool to simplify my installation of a powered sub. The installation was a snap, and this tool did the trick. Regardless of the wire thickness or gauge, this tool stripped it in one shot. Using the length indicator, I was able to get the exposed wire length right every time. Highly recommended!
Pros:
Ease of use, versatility
Cons:
None

My favorite stripper

Written By carmanic, Elk Grove, Ca on Sunday, February 10, 2013
 
Years ago a hack installer left a pair of these in my car when he "attempted" to install a new head unit. Since he failed miserable AND tried to charge me for his time, I kept the strippers (and did the install myself). Since then and through countless stereos and three complete custom wiring harnesses, I have never used another stripper. Put the wire in, squeeze the handle and *SNAP*, done.
Pros:
Fool-proof, fast, consistent and reliable.
Cons:
So good, people will steal them.

It works fairly well

Written By DougG, Warren, Mi on Monday, November 19, 2012
 
I've used this stripper for years. I'm on my second one. It comes in handy for me. It is all plastic except the blades. It isn't meant to be used with double insulated wire, however I found that if I squeeze the tool just enough to bite the wire and give it a few back and forth twists then finish squeezing to strip the wire, it works just fine. A small shot of WD now and then helps keep it working like new. Something I didn't figure out with my first one.
Pros:
All plastic except for blades, (less shock hazard). Small size.
Cons:
Have to work it to strip through the outer plastic coating on some wires.

This is the worst wire stripper I have ever used. I tried to strip #12 wire with clear coating and it dident even strip the coating off.
