Paper Abstract

We report on a family of high performance, hand-held cleaving tools developed by Thomas & Betts for use by field installation personnel. The cleaving tools are characterized by simplicity of use (cleaving requires only two actions, each operator insensitive) and consistency of cleave quality (100% of cleaves are below 3 degree angle, 80% below 1 degree. Minimum tool life 3000 cleaves).
