Wire stripper accessories include replacement, spare and extra parts for use with a range of wire or cable strippers, including ribbon cable cutters, automatic wire strippers or cable strippers. Wire or cable strippers are small, hand-held devices used to strip the electrical insulation from wires. They're designed to make the cable stripping process easier and more effective. Ensuring your cable or wire stripper is in top working order is important because it strips insulation from your wire without damaging the wire. A blunt blade or faulty part can cause damage to your wire.
