Cameron from Dallas, TX on 1/1/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This was the second time I've installed a car radio, this time for my wife. The first time I used a manual stripper and was really inconsistent with the wiring....this time I was shocked how insanely easy and consistent this was. Best money I've ever spent for a tool. It was so easy that I ended up buying a newer radio (right here from Crutchfield ??) for my car because of how the wiring wouldn't be a headache!

Pros: Easy Inexpensive Awesome

Cons: None!

Quick and accurate

Whitehouse Willie from Whitehouse, TX on 12/23/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice tool for quickly, very quickly, stripping wires for connections. It will strip the ends and also can be used to tap into a wire by stripping along the wire and exposing it for a half inch or so. I used it for prepping the wires on my head unit install and it worked great. You don't have to adjust it for any size wire, at least any that I had to deal with to install a new stereo with all the trimmings like backup camera, Bluetooth mic, microbypass and steering wheel control harness. I took off one star because when I got too casual with popping and stripping the wires I noticed a couple had strands of wire in the clipped off insulation and that just won't do. I was more deliberate in the remaining work and although I checked meticulously I never found any more broken strands. If I were doing installations daily or at least pretty often this tool would be a must.

Pros: quick, neat, no adjustment necessary, does wire tap stripping as well as stripping the ends, easy to use one handed and is light weight and compact

Cons: when used too casually it might break a couple of strands of wire

Honestly shocked at how easy these things made my life. I've always just cut/stripped wires with a knife in the past and i think that was one reason i hated wiring. After using these for 5 minutes could already tell they were making a big difference. They work just like they should and they speed things up so nicely

Pros: Works how they should Lightweight & compact Makes work faster

Cons: May struggle with larger wires

Great tool and super easy to use. I bough this to help me while I was upgrading my stock speakers in my truck. This tool was great in speeding up my project. Super easy to use and worked great.

If you plan on doing any work that involves wires this is a must buy.

Pricey for what you get. This plastic tool will not last. It made the job of stripping wires easier and faster, but it will not last with continued use. Often the tool left cuts in the wire past the area that being stripped.

Pros: Stripped the radio wires every time.

Cons: Cheap Plastic. Left cuts in the wire past the stripped area.

Joe R from Naperville, IL on 9/9/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I purchased this as I needed a decent stripper and the price was right when included with the install. Using the tool is really easy and it had no problems with a couple of wire gauges. One big problem often with tools like this is they cut too far through the jacket. This one did not seem to have that issue and the strips were great. There is a rather nice adjustment to assist with the length of wire you want to strip.

Pros: Good price if you purchase as a bundle with your installation kit. Nice cutting depth. Quick, fast clean cut & strip.

Cons: A bit pricey as a standalone item.

When doing a big install job every bit of time saved is gold. These help make that happen. You can strip more wire than the max setting allows (1/2 inch I think), just "hang" the wire out to the side of the back "post".

Pros: Make quick work of stripping wires, easy to use

Cons: Struggled a bit to strip the 12 gauge wire that had the squarish rubber on one strand.

This will be the last wire stripper you'll ever buy....well unless you lose them of course. They are precise and easy to use. Just don't try to cut into an old dried house wire...i had another pair that I used to splice nearly 300 house wires...they didn't make it. I purchased another pair because they really do work great and they make any working job much simpler. They will save you lots of time and like I said...they are precise.

Can't Beat The Price

TheOne from FPO AP on 4/18/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It does exactly what it says! I make cables quiet often and wanted to speed up the cutting and stripping and I saw the price I couldn't resist. I was expecting it not to work, but it actually works! I would recommend it to anyone even if you don't cut and strip wires often. While you are getting your speakers and other gadgets, you should add it to your cart. It's a good tool to have in your tool box, you never know when you might need it.

Pros: Price is excellent! There's a wire cutter right underneath it, very convenient! It makes cutting and stripping looks effortlessness.

Cons: Not the heavy duty material, but for the price I can replace it as often as I need. Which I probably won't have to, because it's keeping up with my crazy wire cutting l!

The wire stripper saves your tons of time and heartache due to it not only removing the wire insulation, but also not breaking any of the copper inside. This is a standard frustration when stripping wires and this tool has eliminated one of the more tedious parts of radio wiring.

Excellent tool to strip and cut wires. Had a little difficulty stripping monster speaker wire until the red plastic safety was removed. Once the safety was gone the tool performed as it should without and hiccups.

Pros: Simple and easy to use.

Cons: Although the safety provides measurements to not over-strip the wires. It could prove cumbersome when dealing with skinnier wire like the monster speaker wires.

Not Worth the Money

Vaughn from Connecticut on 1/11/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Did a poor job stripping the wire. Left much of the outer shell on. The guard that measures the length you are stripping stops at 1/2 inch so limited in value. It also pops out easily, which is fine if not using it but a pain if you are. For equal or less money you can get a much more versatile, durable non-plastic wire stripper from the hardware store.

Pros:

Cons: Cheap construction Limited use and effectiveness

Verified employee purchase (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

carmanic from Elk Grove, Ca on 2/10/2013

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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

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.
