I bought this tool primarily for stripping CAT6 cables. I too, found that there are no instructions that comes with the product. However, after watching a video online, it's like child's play.

1) Place the wire in the notch directly below the black circle dial, do not spin the stripper yet.
2) Check the blade to make sure has just enough contact with the outer casing adjust the black circle dial a few times for the correct cutting depth.
3) When you are confident that the right cutting depth is achieved, put the wire in and spin the stripper around the wire a few times.
4) Take the wire out and pull off the outer casing.

The notch above the words "NOT FOR STEEL" is for cutting the wire.

Again, that video is great at explaining other aspects of the tool. For less than $5 it does a great job.

Pros: Cheap, great for quad shielding, not afraid to lose them.

Cons: I've read in other reviews here that the cons are no instructions. If you need instructions you are a dumbass and shouldn't be buying these and running your own lines. Thats why your cable TV pixilates and your internet is intermittent.

Good product for the pro. With the price of these I never worry about loosing them. I buy 10 or more at a time so I have another handy.

No instructions??????

Pros: Inexpensive


This may be easy to use, if you already know how to adjust and use a similar tool, but it is almost useless if you need instructions. It appears this tool was made for the casual user, so provide instructions for the novice. This is not a tool a professional would use because it would break under daily use.

Come on Monoprice, write up some instructions and make a short video.

Pros: Works great
Saves a LOT of time

Cons: No directions whatsoever. It's pretty self explanatory except I don't know what the numbers mean on the cutting insert.

Great tool, just wish there were directions to indicate what the numbers mean on the blade insert.

Versatile cable stripper

Pros: Versatility.


Cons: Could be a little sturdier and easier to adjust.

I wish I had found this stripper before I bought my other coax cable stripper. This one can handle other stripping chores beyond coax, including removing the outer jackets from round and flat cables.

It is a bit tricky to set the cutting depth just right and it is sensitive to hand pressure, so I recommend testing it on scraps of cable to get the adjustment right before you cut a cable you care about.
