Irwin Vise-Grip Self-Adjusting Wire Stripper - 8in., Model# 2578300
Others at work had these and they work so well I had to get a pair myself. Sure, the conventional wire stripper gets the job done but these guys a slick. Trust me, you'll love them.

Irwin Self Adjusting Wire Strippers
Great product, though I haven't used them a whole lot yet so far I love them. Easy to use yet the quality of Irwin. Pay a little more now you'll be glad you did. They were a backorder item so it did take a longer to get them about 2 weeks I think? Worth the wait.

One tool does it all
This Irwin wire stripper is great! With this one tool in your hand you can handle all wire stripping and cutting duties. No need to change tools. The adjustable stopper is great for changing the strip length of different wires. This really comes in handy when replacing and installing outlets and light switches. The other great feature is this tool can handle cutting multiple gauge wires. Great all purpose tool to have on your belt. I wouldn't be without it.

Works as advertised. I have used similar products in the past (this was a replacement for one of them). This one seems to be have superior materials and construction and works better than any others.

Vice Grip wire stripper
I really like this tool! After many years of inferior wire stripping pliers it is a pleasure to finally have a quality tool that gets the job done. You can't beat Vice Grip when it comes to long lasting well manufactured tools. I did find that it would not strip the leads on an oxygen sensor (shielded cable) perhaps there is another tool for that.Overall I can't imagine how I survived without it.Since this item was not stocked at my local Northern Tool location I had to mail order :( The price is reasonable enough that I will purchase an extra "just in case".

I love the vicegrip products I have used in the past and that is why I purchased this product. I am not at all happy with it. It only works about one in seven trys.. the clamping and cuting mech. does not seem to put enough pressure on the wire I was cutting #12 I have to reach up with my other hand and press down on the jaws to get it to strip the wire... I thought it was a one hand operation.
