Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality After battling with a couple of cables at both ends and not considering that this tool wouldn't work, i could not for the life of me work out why i couldn't get a connection. On close examination of the resulting crimped plugs, not one of them was crimped properly. The tool simply does not work. The comb that pushes the plug's metal connectors into the wires does not push far enough into or evenly across the plug, so no connection is made. This tool might be cheap, but what's the point of paying even a penny for something that can't do the job at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They look like crimpers but the actual connections they make are terrible. The punch down dies don't come down parallel to the plug resulting in a connection that is unreliable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I'd read Gavin's review first, had exactly the same problem. Bought this because we couldn't find our proper crimp tool and had to do some installations in a hurry. spent half a day wiring up cables. almost all failed. complete waste of time , money and effort. on the plus side the LAN cable tester is an excellent bit of kit. wish I'd bought that at the same time, rather than afterwards. only clicking one star because there is no 'no stars' option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They have been in use for months on end and are still going strong unlike a different pair I bought

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good tool but when crimping it squashes the lock-in lug down so the plug doesn't lock, you have to carefully bend the lug back up on the plug, i managed it without snapping it but that's only 2 plugs i've fitted with this tool, maybe the next fit the lug might snap this time. Other than that all the wires was crimped nicely so too was the cable grip, just a shame it squashes the plug lug down.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Confusing instructions. If you are relying on the pictures on the packaging to guide you, it might be a good idea to purchase a magnifying lens at the same time.

Does the stripper that comes with this tool do the same job as a cyclops stripper - ie cut at a fixed depth to avoid cutting through the inner wires?
