Southwire Made in America Romex Stripper | SNM1214HH-US

Southwire Adds Box Jaw Romex Stripper to Made in America Line

Rather than having to try to work a knife or a standard set of strippers awkwardly into an electrical panel box, Southwire’s patent-pending Box Jaw Wire Stripper lets you comfortably and safely strip Romex flush against the back of the panel box. It gives you a bit more features and flexibility than a cable ripper, but with the same advantages.

As a bonus, it’s part of Southwire’s Made in America line.

    How Does Southwire’s Design Work?

    The business end of the Southwire Box Jaw Romex Stripper sits at a 90° angle to the handle. This lets you get the cutting head flush to the back of the box and safely strip off the Romex jacket without having to work a standard stripper into the box at an awkward angle. It works with 12/2 and 14/2 Romex NM-B Cable.

    Additionally, the Southwire Box Jaw Romex Stripper can strip 12-14 SOL AWG single conductor wire with the notches in the backside jaws of this tool. A larger curved blade sits behind these wire strippers for cutting through your Romex or single conductor wire. It also includes a wire looper and shear holes for 6-32 and 8-32 screws. As all-around tools go, this one hits a lot of key needs for electrical rough-in.

    The Southwire Box Jaw Romex Stripper features a spring-loaded, ergonomic double-dipped handle. A thumb-lock keeps the whole package tight and compact when not in use.


    You can pick up the Southwire Made In America Box Jaw Romex Wire Stripper online, or locally anywhere that you’d find Southwire tools sold. It will retail for somewhere in the $28 region.
