The high-performance tool for repairs
Typical application areas of the KNIPEX wire rope cutters include: the broken clutch cable of the classic car is replicated because no original parts are available. New handbrake cables on truck trailers are produced from cable sold by the metre. These wire rope cutters from KNIPEX are the ideal tool in these and many other cases. With cutting capacities of up to Ø 7 mm in the case of stranded Cu cable and up to Ø 5 mm with wire rope, they are suitable for all installation work and work in workshops.
Press end caps on cables and end sleeves on Bowden sleeves
Two valuable additional functions on the Knipex wire rope cutters replace two tools. With the accurately shaped crimping dies for end sleeves and end caps, Bowden cables and Bowden cable sleeves can be directly assembled after cutting. After shortening, end sleeves are pressed onto Bowden cable sleeves to prevent the risk of injuries.
Comfort installed: adjustable bolted joint, opening spring and pawl
The space-saving, inset opening spring provides added comfort, saving the user one hand movement during each cutting operation. As soon as manual force is withdrawn, the spring opens the pliers automatically. Those who cut wire rope frequently will quickly learn to value this feature. For transport, the wire rope cutters are secured using the pawl to prevent inadvertent opening. The adjustable bolted joint permits accurate, permanently zero-backlash operation.
