Utility tools: Jonard Tools’ patented MS-326 micro duct fiber cable slit and ring tool is designed to provide easy access into fiber optic cables specifically designed for use in micro ducts. These cables have a thin wall jacket design that is difficult to open without causing damage to the buffer tubes inside, but the MS-326 addresses that concern. The MS-326 will also slit open thin wall buffer tubes.

Building on the popularity of Jonard Tools' MS-6 and MS-26 fiber optic mid span slitting tools we’ve incorporated a ring feature into the MS-326 making it even more versatile.

The MS-326 consists of 5 precision slitting grooves and 5 ring grooves ranging in size from 5mm to 10mm.

Groove Sizes: 5.0 - 5.6mm | 6.0 - 6.6mm | 7.2 - 7.8mm | 7.8 - 8.4mm | 9.4 - 10mm

Easy to use:
• Open the appropriate side of the tool
• Select the correct groove size
• Place the cable in the tool and close to lock in place
o To ring: rotate the tool 3-6 times in direction of the arrow
o To slit: use markings to align cable, pull in direction of arrow
• Open the tool and remove the cable. If slit, peel the jacket along the slit lines

Notes: This tool was designed for Corning fiber cables, "MiniXtend Fast Access Binderless" and "HD MiniXtend" as well as other similar styles.
