Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Purchased this crimping tool and some RJ45 plugs to make up some cables. The cast bracket which holds the plug cracked the first time I used it and by the time I'd made up two cables it had broken into several pieces. Returned for a replacement which I didn't use for several months but now that I have, it has failed in exactly the same way. Will be returning it under the '5 year guarantee'.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not up to the job Bought this with the ten-pack of RJ45 connectors, also from Maplin. Between rubbish tool and rubbish connectors, not a single good result, and returned for refund. Doesn't exert even pressure across the eight strands, and therefore doesn't make all eight prongs penetrate wires.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken Completely agree with previous reviews. After failing to crimp a single cable correctly I turn to some expert assistance (someone who has done hundreds) and it broke first time he used it. Returning it for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money The cast bracket which holds the plug cracked. Waste of money.

Is this easy for a non-expert to use? I need two 10metre extensions to join telephones and a fax, and they all have RJ45 connectors. You don't sell ready made cables.

This will vary with skill level so its hard to say, we have a full range of ready made cables in the link below:
