Katapult Wire Stripper and Cutter for 8-20 AWG Solid and 10-22 AWG Stranded Wire is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 117.

Klein Tools’ Katapult wire stripper is incredible—put the wire in the gauged cutout at the point you want the wire stripped, squeeze the handles, and the wire is held securely and stripped in one quick movement. This makes stripping wires easy and doesn’t knick the wire inside, giving you perfectly stripped wires every time. A friend lent me his Katapult for a car wiring project I was working on, and I fell in love with the tool. Quality tools feel so good in my hand, and, as expected from Klein, it works flawlessly. The cutting blades are replaceable, but after six years I have not needed to replace the blades. I highly recommend the Katapult, if nothing else than to have stripping wires become your favorite part of any project. Katapult in action! https://youtu.be/0ZQRV19EjOA

I am interested in trying this automatic stripper/cutter tool for tighter spots. And based on some of the reviews about the tool not cutting finer wires or nicking wires, I looked at the blades while selecting one. I noticed that not all blades align fully. Many are slightly off, and this might explain some of the problems those reviewers experienced and hence 3 stars. Who would have known otherwise? I exercised the tools (with difficulty through the blister pack), and selected one that aligned perfectly. Hope it lasts. This particular tool has a wire cutter, which is a plus.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Impress and not so impressed with Klein’s quality and customer service. Purchased 3 different pa... Impress and not so impressed with Klein’s quality and customer service. Purchased 3 different pairs of Klein wire strippers at the same time about 3 weeks ago from Home Depot. Just got tired struggling with my old set of wire stripers, they were not a Klein product. First the Klein 11063W Katapult Wire Stripper/ Cutter really worked great stripping the 12 gauge solid and stranded wire plus some 16 gauge stranded wire stripping I did in my project. Have not used any of the other gauges yet. The cutter part is a little inconvenient to slip the wire into the cutter hole. The amount of hand pressure it takes to make the cuts is somewhat excessive because the cutter’s location is so close to your hand grip, somewhat limited mechanical leverage advantage. The stripper has a so called, replaceable stripping blades, kind of a scam, their replacement cost is few dollars less than the purchase price of the pliers. Overall they are a keeper tool, now in my tool box. Too bad they were not made in the USA. The other two wire stripping pliers, those made in the USA. I purchased the three, at that time, The second, being a Klein 11055 with a nice curved handle so you don’t get the stranded and solid wire cutting slots confused and the third Klein pair that was for somewhat smaller gauge wire, stranded wire only. They both worked OK except when cutting off stranded wire they both would leave some of the strains un-cut. Further investigation showed the wire cutter blades had several thousands separation as the cutter blades passed by. As such some of the small strands of even my 12 gauge stranded wire could easily bend and pass in between the cutting blades. A second cut of the un-cut wires still left them uncut. You might want to read the warranty, not impressive, leaving a person thinking it’s more so what they won’t do. When I called technical support just to ask it this was by design, because I have two different models of their wire stripper/cutters with the same fit design. Is this by design, thinking if so, I need not waste my time exchange them at Home Depot. The support person explained this was above his knowledge and he would refer the question to the engineering department who would be calling me back. It’s been at least 2 weeks since I called, no callback and have now returned them to Home Depot. I kept the 11063W pair as I originally explained and disappointedly returned both of the other made in USA wire strippers. I guess I will have to look at the made in china options available at Home Depot and that other hardware store, what happened to the made in USA Klein quality.

I have owned two other brands in the past, and I found that they could not stand the test of time. They either wear out, or they fall apart due to defects, but these are substantially nicer. You can just tell when holding them that they are in a different league than those other brands. What I like about these is they cleanly cut the insulation off the wires, without damaging the wiring inside. I have had others that were not properly sized and would damage some of the copper inside the insulation. These are super reasonably priced, durable and are the best set I have ever had. Makes stripping the ends much faster and cleaner. Very happy with this purchase.

This tool takes al the guess work out of stripping wires, no pulling, especially in tight places and work with ease. I love the new add on allowing you to cut the wire as well. I had an older pair that has lasted over ten years. The only reason I replaced them is because I lost them. Highly recommended by me. I am a Diesel technician and have 45 years experience. By Kleins crimpers and your set. There both reasonably priced and reliable.

I bought this because of a job we were on required an immense amount of wire stripping. I also bought a competitors that didn't have the center "wire cutter". I found that this unit was far superior and easy to use. The only thing that was a little bit of a let down was the handle started slipping off after about a week. Other than that, very pleased with the product.

I've used every style of wire stripper imaginable. This type is by far the best. Plus having a built in cutter makes the job much quicker. This tool is durable and very easy to use. It works great with stranded wire as well so it is also great for working on cars.
