he Mid Span Slitter is an efficient and indispensable tool for fiber optic cable termination. The sharp blade is made of super-alloy, suitable for longitudinal stripping of outdoor optical loose tube cable. The stripping opens the tube on upper and lower sides for easy access of the fiber. The Mid Span Slitter comes with 4 groove diameters. Just select the proper groove, put in the loose tube, press the blade into the tube coating, close and clamp the two half grooves, and move the blade along the tube to strip.
