Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tippster Still working after 2 years of everyday use!
Bought this over 2 years ago for a home business. I've been using it nearly everyday for electronics orders, and it has yet to give out on me. I've had to tighten the spring bolt hold a few times, but definitely well worth the money over the traditional plier methods.
Great for working with bonded wire sets where matching strips are a must!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CT64 Quick and easy wire stripping.
I needed this for a special project replacing the ballasts and tombstones of 30+ fluorescent fixtures. The Klein Katapult Wire Stripper did the job with ease on both the small and large wires. I wish I had known about this tool long ago because it is definitely a tool a home owner can use when those pesky electrical projects and repairs pop up. This is a quality made product - click and done. Just make sure you use the proper slot for the size wire you are working on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by smathy Works like magic
I've always wanted one of these strippers, and so I treated myself to one of the best.
This works precisely as you'd expect, you pick the gauge, grab the wire where you want, and squeeze. Works every time.
Great build quality and the sort of finish you expect from a premium company like Klein Tools.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilrabbit Outstanding Quality Tool
I was searching through the electrical tools at Home Depot last week for a pair of Klein linesman's pliers. While I was frustrated in that quest, I was pleased to find these wire strippers.
These strippers have very well machined cutters which come together squarely and slice the insulation cleanly without nicking the conductor. They grip the insulation securely, and the action is smooth and solid.
I used them this week on a rewiring project and they handled everything from the doorbell wire to the dryer hook up with no problems (#22 - #8 AWG wire).
Made on Taiwan.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Techiegeezer Expensive, But Well Worth It
This is by far the best wire stripper I have ever used. It cuts the insulation to the proper depth and removes it with one snip. I bought it especially for small strand wiring, because the tiny copper strands would often get cut along with the insulation. Not so, with this tool. As long as you place the wire in the correct slot for the gauge of wire you are stripping, it will do a perfect job. Also works great for larger wires up to 10 gauge.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Casey One of the top 3 tools in my box
Easily one of the best items I've bought. My A#1 item for electrical work! Quick & efficient and solid. Can't ask for more. Blows the doors off traditional strippers, and certainly worlds-beyond the old fashioned "use a snip and do it by feel" method... While the quick "auto-strip" functionality for wire-ends is great, the ability to "spread" an opening in the middle of insulation without breaking the wire is truly a game-changer. Would buy again if I lost 'em - but quality is such I'm sure they'll last if I don't.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveP Perfect wire stripper for lighter guages
I have a heavier version for larger wires and have always loved it. This smaller one is even better than my bigger one. The improvements to quality and ease of use are noticeable. Don't waste your money on less expensive stripper for just a few dollars. This product is well worth the additional investment for anybody who does any wiring whatsoever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Fast Wire Stripping
As the Review Summary states; fast wire stripping. All you need to know is the wire size (note that the slot you choose on the stripper varies based on stranded vs. solid wire). One handed operation easily strips the wire. Noted that I sometimes break off a few strands of wire when stripping stranded. Keep these in my electrical kit at work. Rate value as Average since I have seen equal tools for less money. These DO feel & operate a little smoother though.
