Each CleanStixx™ swab uses a unique, patented, high-purity fibrous tip to clean fiber optic end-faces. The tip is precision molded to be slightly narrower than the alignment sleeve. This enables the tip to spin off-center and greatly improves cleaning results — even on small form factor connectors.
The fibers at the tip of each CleanStixx™ swab spread during cleaning. The fibers grab particulate other cleaning swabs can't lift or dislodge. Capillary action wicks liquid contamination off the end-face and up into the fibers, while the tip flexes to conform to connector end-faces, including APC styles, so no extra tools are required.
In short, CleanStixx™ swabs will leave end-faces clean and residue-free. Available in five sizes, there is a stick for every style of fiber optic connector. Only Sticklers® CleanStixx™ fiber optic swabs can clean any connector, any size, any configuration, just about every time.
