Chrome-plated standard-wire strippers for standard insulation materials
For plastic and rubber insulation materials
As standard wire strippers, the Knipex 11 05 160 are mainly used for wiring frequently laid NYM cable (NYM stands for “standardised cable / PVC wire insulation / sheathed cable”). Fitters who want to wire a large number of sockets in one work step while consistently stripping wires with 1.5 mm², for example, have the right tool to hand to remove the insulation from conductors up to Ø 5 mm or a 10 mm² conductor cross-section. These pliers are also the right tool for stripping flexible conductors in rubber cable as connection or extension lead.
Proven knurled screw for adjusting the conductor cross-section
The pliers are set to the conductor cross-section using the knurled screw so that only the insulation is cut into without damaging the conductor. The knurled screw is secured with the inset lock nut to maintain the precise adjustment even during longer periods of work. This simple technology has been tried and tested by electricians for decades.
With strong construction for long tool life, convenient to use
Knipex 11 05 160 wire strippers are forged from special tool steel and additionally oil-hardened. The opening spring nestles the pliers gently in the user’s hand, thereby substantially reducing strain in hand muscles when holding the pliers tight. The chrome plating protects against corrosion, e.g. if the pliers are kept permanently in the range of tools stored in the company vehicle where temperature changes can lead to moisture (condensation) forming on the tool. Thanks to this machining and finishing step, when used correctly this prepares the pliers for a long tool life. With their multi-component grips, these wire strippers sit comfortably in the hand.
