The CleanStixx Cleaning Sticks is the only cleaning stick on the market that cleans the entire end face not just the contact zone.  Sticklers® CleanClickers are package color-coded by connector size.  A user knows they have the right tool for the application with color coding.  Precision molded to the exact size and shape for better cleaning is what Installers and Technicians find especially relevant.   Also, the CleanStixx Cleaning Sticks package is in a high-purity, re-sealable bag.  The Sticklers® CleanStixx Cleaning Sticks work best with the Sticklers® Fiber Optic Splice and Connector Cleaner cleaning fluid (#POCO3M)
