Wire Strippers

When it comes to setting up your in-home video security system, don’t forget to get good wire strippers. The best wire crimpers not only strip the plastic casing from the cable, but they also allow you to compress the appropriate cable end easily onto the cable to make your own cable connections. Any handy person needs good wire strippers and the accompanying cable connectors to replace any connectors that aren’t working properly. Affordable RG6 tools will work for your video surveillance or the television cable that comes into your home. RG-6 coaxial cable is the most common cable used for many of these applications.

RG-59 coaxial cable is specifically designed for use with digital cable TV, a satellite Internet or TV system or for use with your home-based video surveillance system. Budget RG59 tools; include good wire strippers or the best wire crimpers. The best wire crimping kits will have good wire strippers that can be interchanged and used for RG-6 or RG-59 coaxial cables. Many of the kits available will have both of the best wire crimpers in the kit along with several connectors for both types of cable. This provides flexibility and long-term use for many home projects requiring custom cable connections. With affordable RG6 tools or budget RG59 tools, you won’t have to buy another wire crimping set again.

Using the Stripping and Crimping Features

The way to use the wire strippers is to first grasp the tool in your hand. Along the jaws of the wire strippers are several different holes. One is specifically used for stripping the wire, while the others are used for compressing the cable connector ends onto the appropriate coaxial cable. Take the end of the coaxial cable that needs stripping and close the wire stripping portion of the stripper around the cable about a 1/2 inch up from the end of the cable. Close the wire strippers until it locks and then pull the stripper toward the end of the cable. A good pair of wire strippers will immediately remove the outer jacket of the coaxial cable and leave the copper wire exposed.

Place the connector onto the end of the cable, threading the copper wire through the middle, ensuring that the outer lip of the cable connector goes over the plastic covering of the cable, while the inner lip slides underneath the plastic covering and touches the silver material underneath. Once the connector is on tightly, find the hole on the wire crimper toward the handles of the crimper that matches the shape of the connector. Place the jaws around the end of the connector and squeeze the crimpers until the handles lock. Unlock the crimpers and the cable connector should now be compressed onto the coaxial cable.

A variety of affordable RG6 tools, as well as budget RG-59 tools, are available from Esentia Systems, Inc., a premier supplier of security system equipment and accessories online. For the handy do-it-yourselfer, there’s technical information and help, if needed, and affordable tools and equipment to create your own in-home closed circuit TV security system. Having a video surveillance system requires the use of coaxial cable, unless the system is wireless, to connect all the cameras up to the monitor. The most reliable systems are those that are wired because nothing can interfere with the signal and you are always ensured a clear video picture.

There are also hidden cameras available to use as “Nanny Cams” to keep an eye on people you have taking care of your children when you are not at home. These systems can easily be hooked up and the cables run in your attic or behind baseboards where they won’t be seen. Setting up your own in-home security system can give you added piece of mind, especially when you hook the system up to your computer. This allows the homeowner to access the system through a web browser connected to a computer or smartphone and check up on things at home. For the parents that have latchkey kids, you can place cameras in the home to keep an eye on them from a distance. Hooking up the system to a computer also allows you to keep logs of activity in the home.
