MRT – Messenger Removal Tools:

Product Description

MRT messenger removal tools separate the messenger from the jacket on hardline cables. MRT tools strip the messenger from the end of the cable, and the companion WST web slitting tool removes the messenger in the middle of a cable run. When working on QR cables, WPT web planer tools can be used in combination with the WST tool as an alternative to using MRT-QR tools. The WST removes the messenger, and the WPT tools remove the remaining web. MRT and WST tools remove the messenger on any sized PIII, T10, TX10, or MC2 cable and .320″ through 1.125 ” CommScope® Quantum Reach® cables. WPT tools plane the web on .540″, .715″, and .860″ QR cables.

Applications

MRT and WST tools remove the messenger on any sized PIII, T10, TX10, or MC2 cable and .320" through 1.125 " CommScope® Quantum Reach® cables. WPT tools plane the web on .540", .715", and .860" QR cables.

Special Features

High-performance Design:
Sized for specific cables, MRT tools cleanly remove the messenger and web from the end of the main cable. The companion WST web slitting tool separates the messenger in the middle of a cable run, so that the messenger can be used to hang the cable.

When preparing a QR cable for connectorization, the WST tool and a WPT tool can be used in succession instead of using an MRT-QR tool. The WST tool removes the messenger, and the WPT tool removes the remaining web to leave the correct jacket thickness for the connector.

Spring-loaded Tool-steel Blade:
Made from hardened tool steel, the pivoting MRT blade bites into the web to make a clean cut. Because the blade is spring-loaded, it can be released easily to enable the tool to slide along the cable without damaging the web. This feature facilitates removal of a precise length of messenger.

Knurled anodized bodyKnurled, Anodized Body:
A knurled surface ensures a firm grip on the tool body, which is annodized and sealed to provide protection from the elements.
