Good BUT DANGEROUS – RJ45 Network Cable Crimp with Cable Cutter 2-set Toolkit Reviews

posted by jhgreenstein on 01/11/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
This unit is cheap and crimps pretty well. If feels quite well made and is sturdy. The colour makes it stand out in your toolbox.
Cons:
The blade at the bottom is VERY DANGEROUS. It's right next to your fingers. It has no protection and I cut myself badly on it. Actually twice until I turned the blade around.
Other:
If you buy it, REMOVE THE BLADE. You can cut and strip the wire with a side cutter instead. The place for the plugs is at the end rather than at the side as is usual. It might be a better way - I'm not sure.
Bottomline:
Caveat Emptor. If you buy it be very careful. This would never be sold in the West as it is.
