Ripley launches Miller fiber-optic prep tool kits

April 13, 2021
Professional-grade, heavy-duty kits are available with either a convenient hands-free tool pouch, or a durable molded case with precision cut EVA foam, to keep fiber tools organized and protected.

Ripley Tools announced that it is now offering the new Miller MA03 Advanced Fiber Optic Preparation Kits, billed as being "packed with the latest and most trusted Miller tools and essential for any fiber cable technician." The professional-grade, heavy-duty kits are available with either a convenient hands-free tool pouch, or a durable molded case with precision cut EVA foam, to keep fiber tools organized and protected.

Inside the kit are award-winning, patent-pending Miller tools, including: the ACS+ Slitter for Armored Cable; MB04 FTTX Drop Cable Slitter; and the MSAT 16 Mid-Span Access Tool with 16 unique cable diameter settings. The preparation kits also include: a pair of precision Miller fiber strippers; the KS-1 Kevlar Shears; the compact FTS Buffer Tube Scorer; and the CA Series Cable Grip Tool.

"Ripley has been a leading provider of custom kits to telecom operator and power utility professionals for decades," comments John Jutila, CEO Ripley Tools. He adds, "With advice from our current customers, we tailored a quality Miller tool assortment and custom-built case to offer to all optical cable technicians at a competitive price as a standardized field kit covering a wide variety of installation applications."

The MA03 kit's customized Miller storage pouch features a durable 1680D high-density oxford fabric construction for added wear and water resistance. With 13 dedicated pockets and a large internal space, there's room to keep all the kit's essential Miller tools and more. The pouch features an ergonomic carry handle and a removable long adjustable strap that doubles as a shoulder or waist strap for hands-free use. The zippered lid keeps tools protected from debris, and a heavy-duty snap keeps the top open for quick access.

For the technicians that prefer a hard-sided tool case, a double-walled molded case is a durable and lightweight option. The hard-sided tool case's EVA foam inserts are cut to fit each of the included Miller products, protecting the precision tools from damage and saving time looking for tools. Robust, snap-fit latches keep the kit securely closed, and the molded ergonomic handle fits comfortably in either hand.

Ripley Tools notes that, for decades, it has collaborated with cable manufacturers and professional installers to design and manufacture some of the industry's most trusted tools under the Miller brand name. The Miller MA03 Advanced Fiber Optic Preparation Kits are just two of many products launched by Ripley Labs, the global research development and innovation center at Ripley Tools.
