Discount code for self-adjusting wire strippers

Originally published at:

I’ve got a set of these and very happy with them. I suspect it’s a white label product since I see the same design under different brands.

Once I got my finger stuck in a tool like this. There was no emergency release, and it looked like the only way out was through. Luckily I got real serious about pulling my finger back out without another click of the ratcheting mechanism, and I made it without taking my fingertip off. Almost a cautionary tale, but luckily I escaped without injury so I didn’t have to learn anything.


Many of the reviews on that Amazon page are clearly for products other than this pair of strippers. I wonder what the actual star rating would be if it included only the reviews that are for the advertised product.

My cousin is an electrician and one summer when I was 13-14 he paid me 40 bucks a day to come clean up after he’d install for a housing development plus I got to keep any wire trimmings to recycle. I had a pair of trimmers just like these and I’m sure I made more off the recycling than my cousin paid.


Well, stripped to the bone at least.


The cutting edges on these usually engage at a depth that is based on the fact that the insulation is softer than the conductor. If the ratchet isn’t easily accessible a chunk of thin sheet metal ripped from a soda can could be shimmed between flesh and blade and then the action may complete reasonably safely.

Don’t use the crimper on this tool for anything you care about.

This is the best article on crimping on the internet:


Yes! :hugs:
