Skinny Fingers - Fiber Connector Insertion/Extraction Tool

Optimark Part No.: F1-SF1

  • $ 130.00 or


Fiber optic system installations often have densely-packed patch panels. Although they are space efficient, these patch panel arrays often make simple insertion and extraction of individual connectors difficult, if not nearly impossible. When small form-factor connectors (e.g. LCs) are involved, these difficulties are exacerbated.

The Optimark OPT SF-1 Fiber Optic Connector Insertion/Extraction Tool is capable of reaching into very tight spaces to perform these tasks. It has been designed to work with virtually all rectangular or square cross-section connectors, providing a positive grip on a connector without crimping adjacent fibers.

The Skinny Fingers tool can insert and extract fiber optic connectors such as SC, LC, MU, MTRJ and all other rectangular or square cross-section connectors easily.
