Award-winning product just got better. Untwisted Tech launches Untwist Tool Pro at CEDIA Expo.
We believe in the philosophy of continuous improvement! That’s why we added the new features to Untwist Tool and improved the old ones. But before we go into the details, let us introduce you to the Untwist Tool.
The Untwist Tool separates the twisted pair wire with a fine tip, using slight pressure and centrifugal force, and straightens the wires with grooves.
We have been searching for a better way to separate twisted pairs and that’s how this specialty tool was born. The past practice was to drag a small screwdriver through the pairs, spin the cable’s other jacket through the pairs, or just untwist pairs by hand. All three of these methods require continuous use of your fingertips, and on larger installs, can leave your fingertips sore for days. That’s where the Untwist Tool comes in handy. It is simple to use, fast, and eliminates that pain in your fingers!
The first version of Untwist Tool hit the market two years ago. Since then, we’ve been working on significant product improvement. The Untwist Tool V2 was introduced last year and put into the spotlight during the ISCWest where it won an award for the Best in Emerging Technologies. The inner workings of the Untwist Tool were completely redesigned to simplify operation. The V2 included a Coupling Boot that goes between the Driver’s shaft and the Untwist Tool’s head. We also added more groves for straightening and improved the shape of the grooves.
The V2 was made specifically with CAT5e and CAT6 cables in mind and this is what our customers are saying:
‘I was never this efficient when I had a whole IDF to cut down. Honestly, CAT5e isn’t bad to untwist by hand, but I still can’t untwist the 4 pairs as fast as I can with Untwist Tool, and trust me the skeptical 66-year-old that works for me part-time and has been in the industry for 30 years thought I was wasting my money until he saw what I was doing with it. For CAT6 and above a tool like this is absolutely essential.’
Yes, we made a revolutionary product, but we didn’t stop here. Untwisted Tech is launching the Untwist Tool Pro version at CEDIA Expo, which will be available for shipping in October 2022.
The Pro Version offers all the same features as V2 and has some pretty cool updates.
Inner part is made out of stainless steel
We added a set screw for an easy shaft replacement
The grooves are slightly larger, because the Pro version is designed for CAT6A and CAT7 cables
The outer part was successfully made out of super strong ABS plastic
With the Pro version untwisting just got easier! Join us at the booth #2041 and try it yourself. Allow yourself to get help from a tool that will save your time and fingers without compromising the quality of your work.
A bit of a background and how the tool was made. Boris, the founder of the Untwist Tool, couldn’t deal with the fact that there is no tool to help with untwisting twisted pair wires. After 22 failed attempts, the Untwist Tool was born. While trying to put it out on the market and operating from his ‘basement’ (one-bedroom apartment during COVID lockdown), he ran into the tool enthusiasts, the owners of the Tech Tool Supply, who saw the Untwist Tool’s potential. Now the three partners – Brent Hagood, Deepak Batra, and Boris Braun are the guys behind the Untwisted Tech and Untwist Tool. With Brent and Deepak’s fresh ideas, the V2 was created and now the Pro version is on the horizon.
