stripper No matter what we do - we repair electric / wiring in the apartment, or connect any electric / technical device - stripping wires in any case have to deal with.As a rule, the most used for this purpose in a life tool - knife.Cut your fingers - it's not the only problem, because the quality of this "baring" current-carrying part of the product is poor.

For example, one of the cores, inner sheath (for multi-layer insulation) may be damaged.In addition, there is a definite requirement for the length of the exposed part of the conductor, and its violation affects the reliability of the connection.Especially many difficulties arise if the wire is not only stranded, but also still and small cross-section.

Strip this - really a problem, especially if it is "zazhgutovan" and, therefore, its length is limited.In these and similar situations, qualitative stripping should be provided on the first try.

For this purpose there is a special tool - stripper , who must be in possession of every self-respecting e-mail / installer.And at home it will not be superfluous, especially if there is no specific skills in stripping wires.One thing - do this work on a regular basis, and the other - on a case by case basis.

for sale, there are several varieties of this device for stripping wires that are different and their capabilities, and the price, so the choice is.It is only necessary to determine the use of some features of the stripper: the expected rate of use, type of conductors and the like.

* The following prices - indicative, as a huge range of products.

knife cable

One of the simplest models, but is suitable for home use is fine, as it is considered universal.It has two blades, one of which "hide" in the handle.External (it is also called "eccentric", as it can be rotated) is most often used as a normal knife.

They conveniently produces a breaker cables (incision of the external layer of insulation), as well as the "hook the" edge of it with a special hook.To work with any products section up to 3 cm is sufficient, but with larger diameter cables in the home is almost none of us does not face.


Availability regulation mechanism allows you to select the desired cut depth for the inner blade.This avoids damage to the metal wires, which often happens with a conventional knife.As a result, at the time of fixing the conductor in the terminal box or in a contact group, it is easily broken, and all you need to start over.

Price - 1 380 rubles.

Pliers (nippers)

They can be easily removed from the insulation of single conductors, so the "specialization" of such a device is quite narrow.The corresponding diameter of "cleansing" the employee selected by the manual adjustment tools.To do this, there is an adjusting screw which "drives" or "spreads" the sponge.


Price - 1090 rubles.


From traditional instrument distinguished by the presence of holes.Several of them (called "precision"), under a certain diameter of the conductor.The sharp tips of the "sponge" allow incision braided cables, and they are able to bend the wire.Also - a sign of the universality of use.

price - from 965 rubles.

Stripper - automatic

considered a universal tool and is more suited for professional work.Use it to remove the insulation from a thin (0.2 mm) and thick (about 6 mm) conductors.A special mechanism automatically selects the limit of the "capture" of the sample that does not require additional configuration tools.In addition, the side cutters can perform the function (pliers).For this is the torch that is built into the product.Some models of this type of strippers allow crimping ferrules.


Supplied (depending on the model and manufacturer) can be replacement (replacement) "sponge" and cutters.Another advantage - inserts on the handles.They provide both convenience and E / instrument isolation.

Price - 2540 rubles.

The article gives a general classification of strippers.The range of different models, with a variety of "additions" and "twists" are so large that a more detailed look at all the nuances of construction does not make sense.The main thing - to understand what can be done with the help of a tool.A pick - no problem.
