This stripper is well made and works as advertised. Squeeze the jaws open, let them close around the cable. Make two rounds and pull. The next time you open the jaws, the insulation you pulled off is ejected. Could find no signs of nicks in the wires. For a basic, non-adjustable CAT5 stripper, you can't beat the price.

I have been using dedicated stripping tools for CAT5/CAT6 wiring for years, and there is no better way to do it! If you are not using a single purpose tool, you are probably waisting time. The other tool that I have is the UTP/stp Cable Stripper

I like this tool very much, the price is right and when I tested it with a bunch of stripping it never nicked the wires within the cable at all! Very clean strip! I can't say the same for my old one which is linked above ... The Ideal was good, but it was easier to nick the pairs inside of the cable and it costs more than this one does! This tool is the clear winner.

This is a good value, ... If you work with CAT5 or CAT6 cabeling and you don't have a tool like this just add it to your cart now, ... You will not regret it!

This neat little tool is the best I have found for perfectly stripping CAT 5, 5e and 6 cables quickly. Simply open and place this tool around the jacketed cable and give it a few fast spins with your index finger. In a matter of seconds, you have an evenly scored incision in the jacket of the cable. Tug slightly on the jacket and it pulls right off, leaving behind a perfect strip job with no nicks to the conductors beneath. A must-have tool for any comm tech, electronics enthusiast or installer!

Like any cutter its not perfect but it does very well. I tell my guys not to go around more than once on CAT .5e & .6.
This way it doesn't quite cut all the way thru but won't cut the coating off the pairs either. We've found if you spin it around more than once you will cut into your pairs.

What most installers will advise is to place it about an inch from the tip of your wire, spin it around 2-3 times then pull back on the cutting string another inch or two depending on if you're going to punch it or terminate it using a jack.

Working very well. Have used it on a wide variety of cables that I've come across in clients sites. CAT5, 5e and 6 have all been great. Very little to no visible nicks to the insulation of the individual wires. 3-4 turns, I can feel it get easier, and it's done. Has made fixing cabling mistakes much quicker, cleaner and easier.

I got this stripper for the obvious reasons. I was make a ton of CAT5 cables for a network installation. Here's the problem: on fat CAT5 with thick plastic jackets this thing is amazing. Works like a charm every time. On the other hand, if your client buys cheap CAT5 from a hardware store with thin plastic jacketing then you'll find yourself spinning this thing around many times to get a good cut on the jacket.

On the whole it's a great little device, but 3 stars because there's no way to account for cheap thin jacketed CAT5.

This tool works great and won't damage your wires. Very easy to use. Its better to buy a tool that you wont have to worry if it will damage your wires, spend a little more and buy this tool, you wont be disappointed
