Whether you're stripping wire to install outlets and lights or just need to replace some damaged automotive wiring the STEELMAN 41873 Universal Wire Stripper and Cutter is the tool that can help you get the job done. Made from durable steel with comfortable and ergonomically angled PVC dipped and textured handles it cuts and strips equally well on both solid and stranded copper electrical wires. This pocket sized, 7-inch wire stripper can remove insulation from 20 to 10 AWG (0.8 to 2.6mm) electrical wires and the spring assisted opening helps you effortlessly move from one wire to the next. The screw shearer is capable of leaving clean, burr-free cuts on screws sized 4-40 and 8-32 (M3 and M4) and the plier style nose gives you the grip you need to pull, twist, bend, pinch, and hold wires and the looping hole allows you to quickly bend hooks into wires for attaching to terminals. When not in use a convenient lock keeps the pliers closed and compact so they don't get tangled in your tool belt. You don't need to be a lineman or electrician to have access to quality hand tools, look no further than STEELMAN.
