The lightweight with tangible benefits

The Knipex 12 62 180 is a good choice if you occasionally need to strip cable, e.g. when installing lighting, during model making, work on a camper van or when installing new sockets. It greatly reduces strain, both for DIY enthusiasts and for professional users. Firstly, there is no need to adjust to different cable cross-sections because the pliers do this automatically. Secondly, thanks to the slim head shape, it is also possible to strip the wire in poorly accessible areas, such as in junction boxes. It has a wire cutter for shortening cables and cutting Cu and Al conductors up to 2.5 mm², so users need one less tool.

Convenient wire stripping of single layer standard insulation

The cable to be stripped is inserted in the pliers from the front and pushed up to the individually adjustable length stop. After this, the user only needs to press the handle. The wire stripping process takes place automatically. The insulation is only cut as deeply as needed for removal of the insulation layer. When the Knipex 12 62 180 is used correctly, it protects solid, multicore and finely stranded conductors from damage.

Saves time and effort – increases safety

Anyone looking for a convenient substitute for simple manual standard wire strippers or for the makeshift wire stripping diagonal cutters famous in electrician circles is well-served by the Knipex 12 62 180 automatic wire strippers. There is no need to adapt manual force to the insulation thickness or strip the insulation by hand. With these pliers, wire can be stripped conveniently, quickly and above all safely. Due to the automatic conductor protection, you are able to produce VDE-compliant wire stripping with just two hand movements: insert cable, press the wire strippers.
