April 21, 2009--Platinum Tools' All-In-One Modular Plug Crimp Tool is designed for a broad range of telecom and network, security, residential structured wiring, whole house and custom install A/V, and professional and commercial A/V applications. The tool combines a rugged design with the convenience of terminating all popular plug configurations used in voice, data, and A/V installations.

"This comprehensive, precision tool not only terminates a wide range of plugs and strips a broad range of cables, it replaces up to five other tools," explains Lee Sachs, Platinum Tools' president and general manager.

Steel framed with PVC handles and rust resistant black oxide finish, the 12-oz. tool terminates RJ-45, R-J11/12, and RJ-22 (handset) plugs to solid or stranded cable from most manufacturers, including: RJ-45 - Cat 3/5/5e/6 (8p8c); keyed and non-keyed; RJ-12 - 6p6c; RJ-11 - 6p4c/6p2c; and RJ-22 (handset) - 4p4c/4p2c.

Three separate crimp cavities (4, 6, and 8 position) are designed to provide precise, repeatable, and reliable terminations. A ratcheting mechanism guarantees optimal pressure is applied so the contacts are seated to the correct depth and its vertical action assures all contacts are seated to the same depth, providing an FCC compliant termination.

Replaceable cutting blades allow for stripping of rround (Cat 3-6) and flat (silver satin) cables.

Suggested retail price is $29.95
