High-performance tool for car, bicycle and motorbike repairs
The Knipex Bowden cable cutters are used, for example, when the brake or gear cable on a bike needs to be replaced with wire rope sold by the metre, requiring manual assembly. Another of many application examples: on an air-cooled classic car, a replacement needs to be produced for the heating Bowden cable that runs from the passenger compartment to the heat exchanger because no original parts are available. The Knipex Bowden cable cutters cut the wire rope accurately without the wire fanning out.
Special cutting edge form for perfect cuts
The cutting edges of the Bowden cable cutters from Knipex have two key qualities: their shape and the additional induction hardening. The cutting edges are shaped like sickles. When the handles are pressed together, they enclose the material almost completely in a circular shape. Enclosed in this way, the Bowden cable is cut from the outside inwards – without any fanning. The hardening of the cutting edges with induction ensures the particularly long tool life.
Reduced workload through automatic opening thanks to the opening spring
Thanks to the opening spring the user saves one hand movement during each cutting operation. This noticeably reduces work in the long term. Those who frequently cut Bowden cables and soft wire ropes will quickly appreciate this useful feature. The Bowden cable cutters with integrated pawl prevents inadvertent opening during transport.
