TOOLS

Cable Prep The choice is obvious! In the cable tool marketplace, it’s not uncommon to find offers of free tools with cable purchases, but as so often happens, free really isn’t free. Giveaway tools are far more likely to cause botched jobs, callbacks and truck rolls, which can cost you thousands each year. Cable Prep thinks that’s no way to run a business, so we’re dedicated to providing tools that do the job right the first time.
