SCISSORS with STRIPPING NOTCHES

Telephone Man's Scissors with Stripping Notches
Scissors

with Stripping Notches


Scissors Stripping Notches

The highest quality Phone Man's Scissors we've found!

The edge of the blade is serrated, which keeps the cable or wire(s) from slipping forward out of the Scissors as you try to cut it.

It has two Stripping Notches. One for 24 gauge wire, and one for 22 gauge wire.
The Stripping Notch is the safest way to strip the insulation from telephone wire. It won't put a notch in the wire (like a set of Dikes would), which would cause the wire to break after it was flexed a few times.

To strip a wire, hold your finger over the wire in the notch, and pull the insulation off by moving the Scissors, which holds the insulation - allowing it to slide off the wire.

    NOTE: There has been a bug in all Fluke TS52 PRO Butt-sets made since around the 20th week of 2011. The date code in the white area above the MUTE button would say 2011 through at least 0614.
     

    The bug on all of the TS52 PRO Butt-Sets we sell has been fixed!
     

    The bug only occurs if you have high loop current on the line. Maybe over 45ma, which you can see on the built-in display.

    If you turn on the speakerphone and go off-hook to dial a call, when the call is answered  the call is immediately cut-off and the microprocessor in the butt-set reboots (the back-light comes on and all the characters are shown on the display). If you turn the speakerphone on after the other party answers the butt-set works fine. None of the TS52PROS we ship have this problem!

    You really can't talk on the speakerphone in most phone rooms because of the noise, but I've always dialed on speaker and then turn the speaker off when the party answers. I've been doing that since my first TS22 (the first speaker butt-set I owned) in 1987.

    BENT-NOSE BUTT-SET CLIP WITH NAILS and SPIKE

    Bent-Nose Butt-Set Clip with Nails / Spike

    This is the standard Butt-Set Clip.

    The Bent Nose allows the Clips to be used on a 66 Block without shorting together.





    The Bed-of-Nails allows the tech to simply clip to the wire
    to make contact without stripping the wire.



    The Spike is used to connect to aerial drop wire by going through the heavy insulation to the wire.

    It's no longer recommended that you use the Nails or Spike on wire that's used outside, that can get wet. Although the holes are self sealing they won't keep water from getting to the copper conductor.

    Be sure to bend over the strain relief!

    4 Pair Modular

    Butt-Set Adapter (Banjo)


    The World's Most Flexible Butt-Set Adapter!

    Universal 2-4-6-8 Pin Mod Plugs are included on the short Modular Cord- fit in any Modular Jack!

    Breaks out all 8 pins (4 Pairs) of any Modular Jack

    Using this tool is a lot easier than removing the cover on a Modular Jack, to clip your Butt-Set to the screws!

    Because it has a Jack, if you can't get to the jack on the wall because it's behind a piece of furniture, you can just remove the Modular Cord from the back of the phone, and plug it into the Modular Butt-Set Adapter.

    Comes with a short Modular Cord with special  Universal 2-4-6 and 8 Pin Mod Plugs. These 8 Pin Plugs are shaved on the sides to allow them to go into any Modular jack (except a handset jack).

    Pinout Chart printed on the Modular Butt-Set Adapter for USOC, 568B (WECO) and 568A wiring. Just clip your Butt-Set or Tester to the correct clips (4 and 5 is the middle pair of any jack), and you're ready to go!

    Two Modular Jacks with a Short Modular Cord allows you to insert the Butt-Set Adapter in-series with a Modular phone or other device.

    Color and Style may very (it may be diamond shaped or round), but it will do exactly the same thing.

    KRONE SPLITTING BUTT-SET ADAPTER

    Click for a bigger picture of the Krone SPLITTING Butt-Set Adapter



    KRONE
    Splitting Butt-Set Adapter

    The KRONE Splitting Butt-Set Adapter is made to be used on KRONE Disconnect Blocks, used for an RJ-21X (primarily in Nynex areas).

    KRONE Disconnect Blocks are specially made so that when you insert this Adapter, it disconnects the CPE equipment automatically - which is like opening the Bridging Clips on a 66 Block.

    No other Adapter should be used on the KRONE Disconnect Blocks, since it will NOT open the pair to the equipment, which could cause you to think the phone line is bad when it isn't.

    The KRONE Splitting Butt-Set Adapter has four Banana plugs. Two are labeled To Equipment, and the other two are labeled To Telephone Company. You simply clip your Butt-Set on the appropriate pair to look OUT (towards the CO), or IN (towards the CPE).

    The telephone line is automatically reconnected to the CPE as soon as the Adapter Plug is removed.

    The World's Best Toner & Probe makes finding unmarked cables FAST!

    Finding unmarked cables is a fact of life!

    Toner Features:

    • Red and Black Rubber Cords
    • Butt-set type Bent Nose Bed-of-Nails Clips (with spike)
    • Red and Black Boots
    • Modular Cord with Snag-free Mod Plug

    • Water resistant construction
    • Continuity Test and Polarity LED
    • LED to indicate the Toner is on
    • Push-Button Steady / Warble Tone selector button on front of Toner
    • Smart Tone Function changes Warble to a Solid tone when the pair is shorted (must be dry pair with no voltage), for positive identification
    • Trace Coax by clipping from local (building) ground to the Shield of the coax cable
    • Standard 9V battery included

    Probe Features:

    • Lanyard
    • Water resistant construction
    • HI and LOW volume button
    • If the Toner is clipped to local (building) ground and the Shield of a coax cable, you'll hear the tone on the coax with the Probe
    • Non-conductive Tip is impregnated with silver particles, so touching the Probe to a wire will give you a scratch sound and louder tone

    Pouch Features:

    • Velcro Flap keeps Toner & Probe safely in the Pouch with Belt Loop

    NETWORK (Ethernet) TONER & PROBE with LINK FLASHER

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Toner & Probe with Case

    Made for Tracing Ethernet Cables

     

     




    Plug the Toner into a workstation port, turn on the Link Flashing feature,
    choose one of the 3 flash patterns, and Identify the port on your Ethernet Switch.

    Finding Unmarked CAT5 and CAT6 Ethernet Cables is a fact of life!

    Regular Tone and Probe Kits were designed to identify phone cables. Toning an active LAN circuit can disrupt network traffic, and it's difficult to track due to cable twist and tone bleed.

    The Network Toner & Probe is different.

    The Toner incorporates three Link Light activation speeds to easily identify the port that the cable is attached to on a hub or switch by simply looking for the blinking lights. Why three? Because different makes and models of Ethernet switches don't react the same to the Link Activation signals. Three speeds ensures the widest compatibility available.

    Features:

    • Activates Link Light to Identify a Connected Hub or Switch Port
    • Transmits 4 Different Loud Audible Tones
    • Probe has Speaker with Volume Control
    • Toner / Probe Works with Other Brands of Toners & Probes
    • Tone & Probe Works Great for Telephone Cables
    • RJ-45 Male or Female Connection (plug a Patch Cord right into it)
    • Auto Power Down on the Toner Extends Battery Life
    • Toner has a Built-in Low Battery Indicator
    • Detachable Alligator Clips on Toner
    • Detects Shorts or Opens
    • Standard 9V Batteries Included

    3 PRONG AC OUTLET TESTER

    Always use an AC Outlet Tester to see if an outlet is wired correctly!





    Use it for every piece of equipment that plugs into AC!

    Just plug it into an AC outlet! It tells you whether the outlet is wired correctly, and if there's a ground on the third prong. Without a ground, electronic equipment may not operate properly, which is also the case if hot and neutral are reversed.

    If something strange is happening this is the first thing you should check!

    NOTE: An AC Outlet Tester will tell you if the outlet is wired correctly and if a ground is present, but not the quality of the ground.

    There's no way for you to know without running the stuff with no ground to see if the problem clears.

    Just plug this in-series with a 3 Prong power plug on your equipment to run it with no ground.

    Keep a couple in your case!

    Need to know what kind of Central Office the Phone Company is using?

    How about the address of the Central Office?

    Click Here to do a CO Lookup!  
    Click Here
    to do a CO Lookup!

    Use our CO Lookup to find out which Phone Company owns the CO,
    where the CO is, and how far it is from your customer's premise
    using our
     Map It!  feature.

    You'll also find all of the exchanges in that Central Office (the actual CO switch could have many exchanges, allowing it to go over 10,000 phone numbers), and find all of the other COs (colocated) at that address (there could be several).

    Keep in mind that with the advent of Portability, there is no way to tell whether a particular phone number has been ported to another Phone Company without asking your customer (if they know!). You could try dialing 0 for the Operator, but it seems like most are now in India, and don't know who they're answering the line for (they just say they're the Operator).

    If you use the local Phone Company's 1KC Tone on a phone number that's been ported to another Phone Company's switch, the readings probably won't be accurate. You'll need the 1KC Tone phone number in the CLEC's switch.

    We need your local Test Numbers!

    Our database will now list Test Numbers for each switch (1KC Tone and Silent Termination), when we have that information. If you know the test numbers for some of the COs in your area, you can look up that CO, and then enter the information into a form. We'll test them (we don't want to keep calling someone's Grandmother!), and put them in the list within a day or two.

    Since the database lists each CO individually, we need the information on specific COs. Although we can try to put general notes in the listing that will apply to an entire city, state or area code, the most useful information is specific test numbers for a particular CO. At this point, we don't have a lot of test numbers, but we're hoping that will change quickly!

    At most COs, the 1KC Tone is always the exchange code plus a particular last four digits. In the Chicago area, 9996 and 9940 are popular for the 1KC tone, and 9939 or 9995 for Silent Termination. 9997 or some other number is used to open a circuit automatically for a few minutes from the CO for testing in the field (to remove talk battery so you can test with a Kick Meter or Sidekick).

    If you know the common four digit station numbers that a particular Phone Company uses, you may be able to figure out the test number you need by trying those four digits with all the exchanges shown for that CO in CO Lookup (like XXX-9996). Since there are usually several exchanges working out of larger COs, the test numbers will only be on one of the exchanges.

    As an example, if you do a CO Lookup on the 630-295 exchange, you'll find that there are quite a few exchanges working out of that CO (they all have the same CLLI code). Neither 630-295-9996 or 630-295-9940 give you a 1KC Tone, but if you try each of the exchange codes in that CO, when you get to 630-980 you'll find that 630-980-9940 gives your a 1KC Tone.

    Note that on the list of exchanges working out of the same CO, there can be more than one area code in a Central Office. In the case of the CO that has the 630-295 exchange, there are several 847 area code exchanges. This is usually the result of area code splits, where the line between the two area codes went right through the area where a single Central Office served several cities.

    When you need to do a CO Lookup, you'll find it right at the top of our main page at www.sandman.com
