JacKnack Telecommunications Cable Prep Tool

New Spin on Twisted Wire Termination

TE’s new JacKnack Tool provides a simple method to perform all the basic cable preparation functions including the time consuming untwisting of wires.

The most novel feature of this tool is its ability to untwist twisted wire pairs. An installer simply presses the finger loop to extend the wire clamp, places the wires in the wire clamp, releases the finger loop, and twirls the tool around his or her finger. This method is much quicker than untwisting by hand. When used properly, the minimum amount of untwist can easily be maintained. Once the wires are untwisted, the installer can keep the wires clamped to place them in the lacing fixture or the connector. After that, it is a simple termination to complete the process.
