Interlocking Armor Removal
Cleerline SSF™ Aluminum Interlocking Armored cable requires the removal of the armored layer prior to termination. These steps are demonstrated in our instructional video. For more information on terminating Cleerline SSF™ fiber, please refer to our Resources section. Terminating SSF™ fiber may also require a Cleaver Height Adjustment. Instructions for this, and other installation tips, can be found in our Resources and Instructionals.
