PrepPRO Coax/UTP Cable Stripper 45-605

SKU IDE45605


The PrepPRO combination Coax/UTP prep tool strips a wide range of coaxial cable types with no adjustments or settings required to the tool. The PrepPRO can strip RG-59 and RG-6 in regular, quad, and all plenum versions without adjusting anything on the tool. No need to adjust blade depths or tool settings. Factory preset for immediate out-of package use. The PrepPRO gray coax cartridge has 2 fixed blades, including a new notched blade, to provide an industry-standard ¼” x ¼” cable prep, which leaves ¼” of conductor exposed and leaves ¼” of shielding exposed. This is the standard required strip length for all IDEAL compression, crimp-on, and twist-on connectors.

A second blue cartridge is included for UTP/twisted pair cable stripping. The single blade cartridge can be used to strip the jacket of Cat 5e/6 cables.

Rotate the PrepPRO around the jacket 3-5 times for coax and only once for twisted pair cables.
