Stripper and shears pair up in new StriX pliers

Stripper and  shears pair up in new StriX pliers

Knipex has launched the StriX, an innovative all-in-one cutting and insulation stripping tool that saves time and energy for electrical contractors.

The Knipex StriX is an insulation stripper with cable shears, two essential electrical installation tools in one pair of pliers. It is an ideal tool for single, multiple and fine-stranded conductors with plastic or rubber insulation up to 5mm diameter or 10mm2 cable cross-section.

Increments in the jaw provide a visual orientation aid for stripping consistent lengths (11mm and 16mm). Additionally, easy adjustment to the required diameter of solid or stranded wire can be achieved with the pliers’ knurled screw and lock nut.

A shear blade is included for cutting copper and aluminium cable, and the tool’s slim dimensions means it can access tight areas.

The StriX is intended to save the tradesperson time and effort through quality and design.
