Gardner Bender’s Circuit Alert wire strippers help you avoid shocking situations by sensing and alerting you to active voltage before you strip. Just slide the switch to “on,” and as you move the sensor’s handle toward a circuit, the strippers beep and flash if it’s live.
The only difference between the two models Gardner offers is that the GST-55 strips #10-18 AWG stranded or solid wire while the GST-224 strips #12-2 and #14-2 non-metallic sheath cable. Both wire strippers cut and re-thread common-sized electrical screws as well, and both strippers include special holes for creating wire loops. The blades are stainless steel and the handles are polycarbonate thermoplastic and over-molded rubber.
Gardner Bender claims these wire strippers can withstand a 12′ drop onto concrete. They’d better be built to last, as street pricing starts around $25 — quite a bit for a pair of wire strippers.
