Platinum Tools introducing Kevlar scissors and 5-in-1 fiber stripper tool

March 28, 2017
The fiber stripper tool has a five-cavity design and the Kevlar scissors feature ergonomic handles.

Platinum Tools will use the ISC West show in early April as the platform from which it launches two new hand tools for fiber-optic termination: the 5-in-1 Fiber Optic Stripper and a set of Fiber Optic Kevlar Scissors. The fiber stripper tool is called 5-in-1 because it features a five-cavity design that allows it to be used with a multitude of fiber-optic cables.

“Our professional-quality 5-in-1 Fiber Optic Stripper and Kevlar Scissors are designed to be versatile and economical without compromising the expectations of the professional installer,” said Sean Rothermel, Platinum Tools product manager. “These tools are manufactured from high carbon tool steel, precision ground and hardened for durability and long life.”

The 5-in-1 fiber stripper’s five-cavity design “ensures all cavities are precision set and no adjustments are required,” Platinum Tools said, adding that the tool also features cushion grip handles. “It comes in a red/black body, is 7 inches long, weighs just 4.59 ounces and strips 2.8-3.0 mm outside jacket, 2.0-3.0mm loose-tube fiber, 2.0-2.4 mm outside jacket, 900-micron buffer, 250-micron acrylate coating,” the company added. The MSRP is $21.95.

The Kevlar Fiber Optic Scissors feature ergonomic handles and a full serrated bottom blade. The 5.75-inch, 2.12-ounce tool’s MSRP is $18.95. In addition to Kevlar, it can be used to cut Aramid yarn, soft cables and electrical tape.
