Customer Reviews

Ratchet Telemaster Modular Plug Tool is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
