This edition of Watts New features the Klein Tools Heavy Duty Wire Strippers. Klein Tools received feedback that users wanted this tool to have a different stripping range, so they decided to come out with this new one. It has a stripping range from 8-10 solid and 10-16 stranded. They integrated crown-stripping holes with a pinch cut plier style.

This tool allows for superior cutting because you can cut steel with it, but also strip well. It also has a plier style tip so it can grab and twist wires.

Every month, this tool goes through vigorous testing. It’s tested to make sure the stripping holes are accurate, the quality of the cut is high, and it lasts a long time.
