RJ45 Crimp Tool

• Recommended for Cat 5 data applications• RJ45 8-position crimp tool for keyed or non-keyed modular plugs (excl. AMP)• All-steel construction

This ratchet crimp tool is specially designed for electricians, contractors and installers who want a high quality ratchet type tool which will give guaranteed repeatability of good mechanical and electrical connections.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This tool is terrible. It does not do the job it is intended to do. It simply did not crimp pins 6-8 inclusive, so I took it back to the shop and swapped it. The replacement appeared to work for one connector (based on visual inspection - difficult to be sure as you need to terminate both ends to produce a working cable, and the second end did not work), then started doing much the same thing as the original, albeit only for pins 7 & 8 now. When I tried to inspect it, I could see that the part that should crimp pin 8 was bent over and touching that for pin 7. I gently probed it with a screwdriver (and I really mean gently, I'm no fool) and it immediately broke off. I will be returning this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I bought these and don't think they are very good. I have tried to make three cables with this tool and had trouble with connectivity in all three. I have yet to be able to complete the third wire. I will be returning these to the shop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had the same poor result, out of 10 crimps, 8 failed on pin6 or pin8. Could see no obvious reason on the tool but it just didnt push the pins down.

Can this tool crimp round CAT5 cable or just flat?
Asked by: Anonymous
The tool crimps the RJ45 connectors not the actual cable therefore the round flat cable is not an issue.
