Ideal Industries Inc. introduced its patented Lil’ Ripper Stripper, which it calls a perfect tool for pump contractors, electricians and others working with Romex wiring.

The device rips and clips Romex’s outer sheathing with stainless steel blades, and then cleanly strips off the inside wire carriers. It also sports a compact, rounded form factor that fits into hard-to-reach places, such as crowded wiring boxes. For more information, visit or call 800-435-0705.
