Klein Tools, Inc.
450 Bond St.
Lincolnshire, IL, 60069

Press release date: January 18, 2013

Designed to grip and strip multiple wire types in a single motion!

Lincolnshire, IL – Klein Tools ( for professionals since 1857, introduces two innovative new wire stripper/cutters designed to quickly and efficiently cut and strip wire, saving time and effort.

Klein Tools improved on its popular Katapult® wire stripper by adding an exclusive built-in wire cutter.  The new Katapult Wire Stripper/Cutter (Cat. No. 11063W) now conveniently strips and cuts 8-22 AWG wire. Precision-machined stripping holes easily remove up to 1” of insulation in a single step without damaging the wire.  The tension loaded wire-grip gently holds the cable while retaining cable geometry.

Klein Tools’ new Self-Adjusting Wire Stripper/Cutter (Cat. No. 11061) features a stripping head that adjusts to strip 10-20 AWG solid, 12-22 AWG stranded, and 12/2 & 14/2 Romex® wire.  This tool is especially useful in panels and other places where multiple wire sizes/types are present.  The tensioning knob easily adjusts to apply the correct amount of force on the wire and an adjustable stopper controls the length of the core strip.  It also features a convenient wire cutter built into the handle.

“For any tradesperson, a multi-functional tool that is faster and easier to use is important,” says Senior Product Manager Gary Lalla. “If you are continually stripping the same wire size, then the 11063W is for you.  However, if you are stripping various wire sizes and types on a regular basis, the 11061 is the tool for you.  Stripping and cutting wire doesn’t get any easier than with either of these tools,” Lalla adds.

Romex is a registered trademark of Southwire Company.

Klein Tools and Katapult are registered trademarks of Klein Tools, Inc.
