Utility equipment: Klein Tools evolves its Voice/Data/Video (VDV) product line by offering the new Coax Cable Cutter - CCS. The “made in the USA” forged Coax Cable Cutter-CCS is a multi-functional cutter that is optimized to cut copper-clad steel (CCS) coaxial cable in addition to other steel, aluminum and copper wires and cables. It is designed to withstand cutting steel-core coaxial cable without damaging the knives or deforming the cable while the shears cleanly cut and snip other wires or cables. This single tool provides a critical solution for electricians, voice/data/video technicians and security installers that work with a variety of cables and wires on the job.

The Coax Cable Cutter ­ CCS (Cat. No. VDV600-096) features include:
• Specialized notched blade designed to withstand cutting steel cable including copper clad steel (CCS) coaxial cable such as RG-59, RG-6/6Q, RG-7 and RG11
• Blade geometry ensures copper-clad steel (CCS) coaxial cable retains form when cut to facilitate easy insertion into connectors
• Shears designed to cleanly cut and snip solid and stranded copper, aluminum, UTP/STP twisted pair wires and cables
• Through-hardened custom US-made tool steel
• Hot-riveted joint for durability
• High-leverage handles for genuine one-handed operation
• Plastic-coated for maximum comfort and grip

“The number of tools that a typical journeyman requires on the job can be considerable let alone expensive. For example, if the correct wire cutting tool is not at hand, a substitute may be used as a quick fix causing early blade degradation of the tool and safety concerns for the user,” states Sean O’Flaherty, senior product manager at Klein Tools. “The Klein Coax Cable Cutter ­ CCS, first and foremost, cuts copper-clad steel coaxial cable without blade degradation or cable deformation but, it is also equally proficient when cutting other data and communication cables such as twisted pair thus delivering on multi-functionality and convenience at a lower cost.”
