Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was my first purchase of an RJ45 crimping tool, unfortunately it was not my last. Better ones are available. These N96JX pliers are totally useless. The outer sheath strippers take at least three of the inner core cables with them (leaving you with only 5 of the 8 strands). The worst problem is the supplied connectors are of poor quality and the N96JX pliers do not exert enough pressure to penetrate/engage the cables. I'm going back for a refund tomorrow.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It is NOT the ratchetting type as it says on the packaging. The strippers are only fit for cutting your thumb when crimping (I did). Worst thing, the contacts are not fully pressed into the housing after crimping and would probably damage a socket if inserted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crimper badly made so does not crimp the plugs properly. Avoid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought this for a specific job.Cutters very poor. don't want to cut.! Connectors very poor. I have now used 8 to try to terminate a cable. Each one failed. Tested cable after crimping and not one wire has made propper contact. I thought it was me, so had a guy from a CCTV company who is doing this all day and every day to have a go with this tool and connectors. He failed too

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This doesn't work, plain and simple. I have crimped RJ45 cables before but after 8 attempts I've still been unable to get this tool to work. The teeth don't even line up with the grooves in the poor quality RJ45 plugs that are supplied with it. The result is a wasted hour and a trip back to the shop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality = Avoid Thuoght it was me as RJ45s had no connection for 5 cables, and jammed in the plug. Then I tried another proper crimper from another supplier which worked. Will try to get money back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worth every penny and no more Bought this yesterday. It was on offer for £2.99 which was cheaper than buying a box of RJ45 connectors so I thought I'd give it a go. I don't know if it was the tool or the connectors but the little fingers that come down onto the gold connectors on the plug to push them into the cable didn't line up so it just mashes the end of the connector. I tried several just in case it was me but they all did the same thing.

Will this tool strip the covering from RJ45 wires?

Asked by: Barnowl
Yes this will work fine in your intended application.
