I’ve been using one of those metal wire strippers for the longest time so I when I came across this little thing, I thought I would give it a try but when I saw this picture, it stopped me from buying it. Can you spot a potential danger here?
I am not an electrician (licensed or otherwise) but with the cover panel off, I see bare hands next to those main lugs which I believe remain energized even with the main breaker in the off position. Of course, whoever took the picture must have pulled the meter outside for this lovely picture but for a newbie DIYer like me, misleading pictures like this really pisses me off.
So for heaven’s sake, skip this dud and buy yourself couple (I always lose them) of Klein Tools 74017 NM Cable Ripper, 8-14 AWG and strip that cable sheathing OUTSIDE the main panel.
Think ahead and stay safe!
