Review for KNIPEX ErgoStrip® Universal Dismantling Tool by M. Cox Electrical

It does it’s job but I’ve seen a lot cheaper ones that also do the job just as well. You must be careful when using as it can quite easily cut through to the core

Review for KNIPEX ErgoStrip® Universal Dismantling Tool by M J J Stannard Electrical
30th September 2020

I bought one of these after hearing a friend raving about his one. I was a little skeptical at first and didn’t think I’d use it much. I’m stripping cables everyday, sometimes some flexes and inner SWA sheaths can be really stubborn to strip, I have found the Ergostrip tackles them much easier with the slicing function. Also, it’s great when preparing FP200 ends in awkward conduit/back boxes, as you can get the tool right in due to its small size, same goes for Cat 5/6/7 etc and control cables. All in all, I’m pleasantly surprised with just how useful the Ergostrip is and would definitely recommend one to others!

Bought this at the trade show last year! Wow so impressive for the cash. Use it for all flex cable and also stripping the inner close core of swa. Makes light work for FP200 also leaving a really clean cut without damaging any cores.

This product is easy to use and is worth the money, there are some fake ones out there but this is the real deal. Works perfect and also great for SWA cable (stripping the inner core).

If you only have one tool in your toolbox this is the one. Put off buying originally due to price but it’s more than paid for itself in time and wasted cable. It’s best feature is that it sets the depth automatically so you only cut the outer core, very useful on Cat6 cable.

This is a tool you must not be without. I remember I bought one when they first got released and showing people how easy it was to strip flex, I’d do it so quick and neatly they thought it was a trick. Don’t be put off by it’s price, it’s worth every penny

I saw one in use online and was impressed with its versatility. I carry it now and use it on most jobs. European design so really meant for round cable or flex, not best tool for flat twin & earth but great for neat, measured cable stripping.

I purchased one of these a couple of weeks ago at Installer 2019 used it a couple of times and was very surprised at the ease of use, time will tell if I lasts not sure it will take any sort abuse on a site and the cost is quite steep for what it is really.

I have always struggled to strip a cable. I first saw this cable stripper being demonstrated in a tool show and I was amazed. I bought one instantly and I now really look forward to wiring up Heating systems. Make sure you buy the correct hand as they do left and right hand tools.

The Knipex wire strippers are only designed for flex and coaxial cable. As I only use flex for heating wiring they have paid for them selves over and over again they are very quick at stripping the outer and single cores

Not bad but way overpriced and not enough functionality, great for flex and alarm cable but for the price there are much better products hence only 3 stars from me

Brilliant bit of kit, best feature is stripping flex, really neat cut and you can get really close inside a junction box, price is only down side, but I suppose you pay for what you get. Also surprised to find out that it’s really good at stripping 25mm tails.

All right guys, just a little review on a KNIPEX ErgoStrip. I find this tool very handy in the right circumstances. Everybody's seen these automated strippers, they're good, everybody knows the concept. They work, squeeze it, strips the cable. Great. They're alright with three core, but the moment you go anything bigger, like this four core, nothing just fits in. That's when I tend to find these little KNIPEX ErgoStrippers are brilliant. They have al the holes down the side for small cable, a tool for ringing cable, splitter, and then they've got a little one for Coaxial cable. All you do is, there's a little clip on the side, push it, open the spring load mechanism, put in your cable and twist it and snap it. Now, when you have a long one like this as well it's very useful, because on the side of this there is a little blade. You can just run it down the edge, close it, clamp it, apply a bit of pressure, run it down, and it just peels that cable off very, very nice for you.

There you go. Then once you've got all your cores out, you also have all your little markings down there, and you can just put the cable you want in, squeeze it, twist, and the end is off there. Also, I don't think you'll be able to make it out on the camera, but there's a little gauge in there so you can see the different lengths you're making, but all in all, this is a brilliant tool and I love it. It does come a lot of use, because I don't really work with three core cable that much, so to be honest, these, I have no use for. But brilliant tool, definitely recommend it to anybody. Great time saver and so handy, but don't leave them lying around because mine have went missing a few times. Alright guys, thanks.
