Cable Stripping Tools

The following blog has been republished alongside the below video from Utility Service Agency, where they demo their favourite Utility Tool® tools for improving safety and reliability during cable preparation.

“What I like about this tool is that it’s very easy to see your blade when you’re doing your chamfer in the field.”

Improve reliability and safety at the same time; take the knife out of your hand and put the Ripley cabling tools in your hand.

Utility Tool from Ripley offer two by two and four by four cable strippers with bushings. The bushings on each side are specifically designed for the conductor sizes you need. “Take about a twelve to 14 inch cut of all those sizes, and send them off to Ripley tools to get your specifically sized bushing.”
