US Conec IBC ‘Click Stick’ in-place fiber cleaning tools
The JDSU guys introduced me to the US Conec IBC “Click Stick”, and I love them for it. Just being able to stick the tip into the patch panel and push the stick until it clicks is an amazing time-saver. Each time it clicks (like a ball-point pen), it drags a lint free thread across the fiber tip. They aren’t cheap ($65 to $85 each), and you need to buy different ones for each ferrule size (LC is 1.25mm and SC/ST is 2.5mm). See it in action at Interop.
