New Snap-On PWCS9 Wire Stripper Cuts, Crimps and Strips Wire in One Easy Step


KENOSHA, Wis., November 28, 2005 - In response to technicians' demands for a high-quality wire stripper/cutter/crimper that would better meet their needs for auto repair, Snap-on has introduced the PWCS9 wire stripper.

The PWCS9 is specifically designed to work on auto wiring and is cold forged from special alloy steel and heat-treated to offer technicians a tool of superior durability and lasting performance. An improvement from the traditional stamped units, the PWCS9's manufacturing process also helps maintain consistency from tool to tool, providing the same performance for every user.

This wire stripper also helps technicians complete several tasks while using only one tool - wire stripping, bolt cutting and terminal crimping. These features allow the tool to strip stranded wire from AWG20 to 10, solid wire from AWG16 to 8, crimp insulated and non-insulated terminals, shear wires, and cut both no. 6 and no. 8 machine screws. The wire stripper also features:

- A narrow pliers tip for grabbing or pulling wire
- A lock to keep the tool in the closed position during transport or when it's in storage
- A patented internal spring that will keep the tool in the open, ready-to-use position when technicians need it handy
- Bi-molded, soft-grip handles that provide technicians greater comfort and decrease fatigue incurred from use
