Snip Your Way In A Flash.

One of the most essential tools inside of my tool box is my wire cutters by Cables to Go 4” wire cutters and snips. You can usually find either these or a pair just like these for right around five dollars at any big box store or any place that sells tools. Whether you are a technician or a handyman or just a housewife that need a pair of cutters for a quick fix these will come in very handy and finish the job that you expect it to do.

Description
These wire cutters have rubber coating to help with any slippage while using them. When you use these, they will cut the wire flush and smooth with the object that you are trying to trim the wires away from. Once you use these they will spring back so that you do not have to pry them loose. The rubber coating will also help with any protection against any electrical shock that you might get if you forget or do not know whether or not the power is still on. Sometimes you might be dealing with some old wiring and it might not be wired right and even if you shut the breaker off, if not wired correctly you could be in for a bad shock.

Experience
I have been using these cutters for years and they are still a sharp as I need them to be. They have always cut the wires flush and I have been able to cut several strands at one time. These are especially nice to cut solid copper wiring, the thicker the wire that you are cutting is no match for these wire cutters. I have even gone as far as to use these to trim some of the little branches from the bushes that are in my yard. The cutters will fit snuggly into your back pocket and you will not even notice they are there. Some tools are quite bulky when they are inside of your pocket but not these, the only problem with these is that it is possible that you forget that these are in your pocket and when you sit down you could possibly cut your butt. These stay sharp and are made of hardened carbon steel, if you leave them outside these will definitely rust. But if you coat these with WD-40 you could prolong the life and sharpness of these cutters.

I have used these on several jobs over the years and they came in handy to cut any thing from plastic, copper, stainless steel, carbon steel, tungsten steel. These have been dropped from several hundred feet in the air and they have not gotten bent out of shape. With these being small enough for them to fit into your back pocket some times you can forget that they are even there. They will also fit into a work leather pouch and this will allow you to have easy access to just do a grab and snatch especially if you are trying to do a very quick job trying to get the power turned back on.

Conclusion
This is one of the most popular tools inside of my toolbox; it is usually the first tool that I grab when I am in a hurry to do a repair. Just about anyone can use this set of cutters but I would not let any children get a hold of these. They would probably cut the wrong thing or they could possibly cut themselves. These are a five star product in my book.
