Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great RJ45 Crimper Needed to replace my old RJ45 crimper after the ratchet mechanism broke. I looked at a few different options, but settled with this one after hearing good things about it. Amazed at how compact and light this crimp tool is (easily fits in a pocket) and how effortlessly and reliably it crimps the connectors. The option to use feed-thru plugs is handy, although I'm used to working with standard plugs so I'll probably stick to using those. And unlike my old crimper, this fits comfortably in my hand, making it much nicer to use for extended periods. Although it doesn't mention RJ11/RJ12 compatibility anywhere, I've been able to make off RJ11s and RJ12s easily and reliably as well. In terms of price, it's certainly not the cheapest option out there, however it quickly pays for itself in time and effort saving, so it's well worth the money, especially if you're using it regularly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Wish I Had One Earlier If only this was around when I was crippling my fingers trying to terminate hundreds of Cat5 Cables the old fashioned way years ago! I replaced my trusty old crimper that I'd had for over 10 years after it was stolen. I now wish it was stolen earlier as this new one is so much better and easier to use. This feed through version is much quicker and simpler to use along with the Ideal feedthrough RJ45 Modular Plugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best crimper I've come across Love this tool! Just did a complete makeover with wiring at home and have finished off a 100-pack as well as an additional 25-pack of Ideal industries Cat 6e RJ45 connectors. I've been crimping them on 24awg ethernet cables, both stranded as well as solid core ones. Thanks to the clever design of the feed-thru plugs, their quality as well as the quality of this crimper, not a single failed crimp/connection! Not even one... This did the job perfectly every single time, and I have every confidence that it will continue to perform flawlessly.
