The CSS-596 is a coaxial cable stripper specifically designed to strip the stub end of a coax cable in a wall outlet, exposing 1/4" of braid and 5/16" of the center conductor, which eliminates the need to run new cable. This coaxial cable stripper features the following:

  • High carbon steel blades last for over 5,000 strips on each side
  • Hook and loop strip on bottom of tool is used to fold back braid on cable after being stripped
  • Can be used with other blade cartridges, such as the CSS-110/115/120/125/130/135
  • Replacement cartridge for this tool is: CSS-105

Blade Replacement Instructions:

  • To replace blade cartridge: open jaws and push upwards on the front of the blade cartridge. Cartridge will lift out.
