A favorite with electricians |
The KNIPEX ErgoStrip, with which all-round cables used in modern house installations can be stripped and dismantled, continues to be popular with electricians due to its time, money and effort-saving functions. Hundreds of thousands viewed the company’s online video about the tool and the electricians who posted positive product reviews showing what the benefit of the ErgoStrip in a toolkit.
The small, versatile and easy-to-use KNIPEX ErgoStrip can disassemble data cables and strip and disassemble a coaxial cable. The innovative, angled shape of the ErgoStrip enables the stripping of all common NYM cables. Thanks to the convenient pistol grip, there is no need to change the grip when disassembling. It is ideal for working in confined spaces such as junction boxes and distribution boxes, as the tapered tool ends allow disassembly in confined areas.
In view of the installer’s requirements, KNIPEX has attached positioning edges to the stripping holes so that the correct cable position for stripping can be found intuitively. Since the insertion points for coaxial and data cables are angled, the cables simply slide into the correct position with light pressure.
A length scale is also available so that data and coaxial cables can be dismantled and pulled off to the same length and NYM cables can be conveniently and safely cut lengthways using the practical cable guide parallel to the half-shells, where the cable is automatically pressed and countered Guide is hollowed out on the housing.
A video about the tool has had more than 175,000 views since its inception and the ErgoStrip is constantly being spotted and thumbs up by UK electricians.
“I unplug cables every day, sometimes some bends and inner SWA covers can be very stubborn. I’ve found that the Ergostrip approaches them a lot easier with the cutting function. It’s also great for prepping FP200 ends in awkward pipe / spine boxes as its small size allows you to insert the tool right out of the box. The same applies to Cat 5/6/7 and control cables. All in all, I am pleasantly surprised at how useful the ErgoStrip is and would definitely recommend it! “Says MJJ Stannard Electrical in the Tool Talk Plus forum.
“I use it for all of the flex cables and also remove the inner tight core from SWA. That makes the job easy for the FP200 and leaves a really clean cut without damaging the cores, ”says Cubeko Electrical.
