Knipex Self Adjusting Insulation Strippers

Knipex 1262180, Self Adjusting Insulation Stripper – AWG 10-24

Knipex 12 62 180, self-adjusting insulation stripper is an ideal compact standard tool for all current cable cross-sections and insulating materials. It can be used for single, multiple, and fine stranded cables of 10 AWG (0.2 mm²) up to 24 AWG (6 mm²) with standard insulation. This tool adjusts automatically to the respective cable cross-section preventing damage to the conductor. It allows the user to experience comfortable operation due to the handy shape and low product weight. The narrow head style allows toe tool to be used in confined spaces and also features a wire cutter for copper an aluminium wires up to 2.5 mm². The replacable length stop is adjustable from from 15/64″ – 23/32″ (6.0 – 18.0 mm) for stripping the same lengths during repetitive work. The replacable blades are crafted from special tool steel and oil hardened.

12-10 gauge 0.250″ width, 0.032″ tab, female nylon-insulated rolled edge quick-disconnect terminals. Also known as slip-on or fast-on connectors, these quick-disconnect terminals offer the fastest way to connect and disconnect two wires. They are also reusable. Simply slide the male terminal into the female terminal. The terminal has a rolled edge connection that acts as a spring, applying a better grip on the male terminal for superior connection reliability. Works with regular, similar width male terminals. The nylon insulation provides relief from vibration that can cause the wire to fail prematurely. The nylon insulation also prevents incidental metal to metal contact that can cause shorts. Requires two crimps (terminal to wire strands, terminal to insulation of wire). Standard tools perform both crimps. For heavier usage, use a tool that performs both crimps at the same time. 0
