Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terrific tool Purchased this tool a number of years ago. It does exactly what they say it does. I used it for industrial purposes for years and never changed the blade. Perfect crimp every time. I lost one of the plastic grips and it still works perfectly. I did purchase another one because I like the grips instead of gripping steel. If you have some heavy duty crimping to do or are a network dog, get one of these. Great money for your tool bag. February 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good crimper Having used a cheap RJ45 crimping tool from an auction site, I can tell you this tool works much better for several reasons. The cheaper tool had 2 very annoying issues: 1) it crimped the strain relief too much and often it would break off leaving the cable unprotected 2) it would over-crimp the pins and often crack the connector. Once you get the hang of using it, you'll be glad you spent the money on a better quality tool. Just make sure to get a good quality data wire stripper to go with it. October 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by As described. Quick ship. Modular crimpers are as described. Quick shipment. Would order from Home Depot again. August 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good tool I prefer this ratcheting tool to cheap non-branded. Used it for many years without any issues. Crimps very well, does what it's supposed to do. No complaints. February 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great price for a crimper crimps very well. would be nice if the stripper would allow for a longer stipped end. the guard on the blades is also annoying. Better than most and at a great price. September 27, 2011
