Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by non metallic cable stripper/cutter Most home electrical wires are 12 and 14 awg. The wire cutter/strippers are a excellent hand tool. The so called automatic wire strippers don't work with any regularity. I've tried them all. This product is by far the best wire stripper/cutter on the market, you won't be disappointed period.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best wire strippers I've bought and used many brands and types of wire strippers and these are my favorite so far! Very strong and easy to use. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great for this first timer I was completely surprised by how easy and precise this was to use. A quick squeeze and the outer jacket of my romex 14/2 slipped right off easy and clean. Same with the inner wire insulation. No tugging or jerking needed. As clean and professional looking wire strip as possible. I even used it to cut some screws for the electrical box. Just insert them into the appropriate holes and squeeze away. After cutting, the screws treaded right in with no problem. I can't speak for long term use but it worked great first time out. Can't see it ever getting dull just cutting insulation so it should hold up just fine. February 28, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by The best and worst i've owned Pros: very comfortable and well designed, strip the romex clean, i've never had any nicks in the wire from these cons: They've only laste me about 5 months before they bound up, however with thier warrinty i just exchange them for new ones. I would have givin them 5 stars but the durribilty is terrible. April 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Klein Quality As a residential electrician, I use these day in and day out. I've tried the various other methods of stripping the outer sheath of Romex, and find using these the easiest and quickest way. Certainly imagine that it would be for the DIY'er also. Nothing worse than nicking the nice new wire that you're just installed. These will give you a clean, consistent strip every time, both to the outer sheath as well as the individual conductors. It's really a quick process with these: cut any excess off, strip the sheath, strip the individual wires and then create the loops necessary to attach the conductors to your switch or receptacle. They also feature holes for cutting both 6-32 and 8-32 machine screws, the most common encountered in residential electrical work. The cushion doubled grips on these are really nice, and between those and the ergonomic curve to the handles, I find them comfortable for even all day use. April 21, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not product advertised Ordered this product online because it had the staggered cutting area. The staggered cutting area allows cutting on up to 6/3 romex. Received the straight cutting area strippers. Not happy. For such a large well organized company, online needs work. The only part of these strippers that set them part from run of the mill strippers was the enhanced cutting area. Without it, not worth the money. February 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great tool what can I say? Klein makes great tools! This tool does everything intended. it's great for working with Romex. April 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money. Another great tool from klein. Worth every penny. Will save time and energy in residential wiring. I feel confident it will last for years with the feel of quality in it. March 3, 2015
