Crimp this – RJ11/RJ45 Network and Telephone Cable Crimping Tool with Cable Stripper Reviews

posted by ExpFist on 01/20/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Great cutting tool - Easy to strip cables quickly - Flawless crimping - Extremely good build quality - Has 3 steps of lock snapping to avoid half crimping a cable.
Cons:
- The blue handles can be pulled off (not a big deal as they don't fall off) - The wire stripper will strip into the cables inside a bit if pressed down firmly. if you're careful and don't use a lot of force you can strip without penetration 80% of the time.
Other:
I've only used this for RJ-45 Cat6 connections.
Bottomline:
This tool does (almost) everything you need to cut and crimp cable. The only thing missing is the ability to straighten cables out once stripped, but no crimper tool does that, and all you need is something like a screw driver. Good buy.
