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

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.

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.

This tool is the stuff man, Wish I had one of these years ago. Don't think just buy it....

When you need to strip a bunch of wires, you can't beat this tool. Makes it so easy, and saves a ton of time, too. [ ZACHARY  Aug 03, 2016 ]
Traditional wire cutters are an accident waiting to happen. I've had these for years. Recently had a contractor at the house and he asked if I had a wire stripper. He used these and fell in love with them. He's coming back to complete some work later. This S&G tool will be waiting for him (I wasn't about to give him mine!) [ M  Jun 25, 2016 ]
