RJ45 Crimp Tool & 10x CAT5e Connectors (8P8C)

View our video by clicking here.


Overview - The crimp tool can be used to cut, strip and crimp 8P8C (8 Pole, 8 Connector) or ‘RJ45’ connectors to CAT5, CAT5e or CAT6 networking cable.


Features – The crimp tool has a razor sharp steel cutting blade and makes cutting through cable easy. The heavy-duty vinyl grips keep the cutters stable and predictable during use, and a handy locking mechanism keeps everything compact and safe when the crimpers are in your toolbox.

Directions of use –

The round cable stripper on the crimp tool allows for even cutting of insulation that is situated around network cable without damaging the cores inside, simply insert the cable into the round recess, squeeze the grips, and rotate the cable 360 degrees. The insulation should now strip away easily.

Having removed enough insulation, separate the coloured wires within, and using one of the two wiring diagrams in the image above, lay the conductors out in order and push them into a connector. Once all the conductors are seated, squeeze the connector with the crimp tool, which will grip and lock the wires into the connector There is plenty of guides on the internet to help you do this process correctly.

Variants -

These connectors can be fitted to CAT5, CAT5e or CAT6 cable, using either of the industry standard TIA/EIA-568-A or TIA/EIA-568-B wiring configurations shown above, to create ‘Straight Through’ or ‘Cross Over’ cables. These connectors can be used with stranded or solid core cabling.

'Cross over' cables are usually used for connecting 2 computers directly to one another, without the use of a Hub or Router. They use TIA/EIA-568-A wiring at one end, and TIA/EIA-568-B at the other.

'Straight through' cables can be used for connecting a PC or games console to a Hub/Router, or, in conjunction with AV extender devices, for audio and video distribution throughout a home or commercial project. To create a 'Straight through' cable, it should be wired using the same wiring variant at both ends. Either ‘568-A to 568-A’ or ‘568-B to 568-B’
