Sept. 12, 2013
The Compact Ratcheting Modular Crimper from Klein Tools also cuts and strips category cable, and includes diagrams of T568A and T568B wiring schemes.

The Compact Ratcheting Modular Crimper from Klein Tools is described by the company as “an all-in-one tool for cable preparation and connection. It cuts and strips Cat 6, Cat 5e, Cat 3 and flat-satin voice cables as well as crimps 6- and 8-position modular connectors.” Klein says the crimper’s heavy-duty ratchet “ensures complete termination by executing a full compression cycle every time. The direct lateral crimp action provides a more-even, precise contact termination across all pins,” the company added. Klein also said the tool’s compact, ergonomic design facilitates single-hand operation.

Diagrams of the T568A and T568B wiring schemes are included on the tool, and “other frequently used wiring diagrams are downloadable to your mobile device,” the company says. Sean O’Flaherty, senior product manager, noted, “Our Compact Ratcheting Modular Crimper has both a heavy-duty ratchet and lateral crimp action to provide a more-stable and –reliable termination each and every time it is used. Yet the tool is about 40 percent smaller than many other models, making single-handed operation natural.”
