Wire and Cable Cutters

Wire cutters are an essential tool for network installers and maintenance technicians. When you’re in the field working on a cabling project, you’ll want wire cutters that cut cleanly, without damaging conductors or insulation. Our wire and cable cutters are manufactured of superior quality materials to deliver precise, accurate results.

A popular wire cutter for field installation of Ethernet cable is the 5" Full Flush Cut Side Cutting Pliers. Perfectly suited for field or production line work, these wire cutters are ideal for trimming excess wire when terminating cable. Manufactured from high carbon tool steel, precision ground and hardened, these wire cutters are made to last. Black oxide finish resists oxidation.
