Different Crimpers Offer Variety of Features
Modular Crimp Tool
When crimping end sleeves a distinction is made between sleeves with and without plastic collars and between trapezoid and square crimping. The sleeves with a plastic collar make it easier to insert individual stranded wires. The colored marking on the wire end sleeves is used to classify the cross section. The Modular Crimp Tool ensures better contact in the terminal strip. The crimp tool also facilitates alignment and assembly, as clamps can be attached to each of the surfaces.
With this tool, you'll be able to repair the telephone line cord that connects between your phone and phone jack, if the phone line cord has become partially or completely detached from the modular plug connector on either end of the cord somehow. This tool basically squeezes (crimps) a new modular plug onto the end of a phone line cord. You can also create your own custom length phone line cords this way. Certain model modular crimp tools allow the same to be done with phone handset cords as well. Also, certain model modular crimp tools allow RJ45 (4-line) modular plug connectors to be crimped onto RJ45 phone line cords. (RJ45 Plugs/jacks are a bit wider than 1, 2, or 3 line modular plugs/jacks). 1 or 2 line phones can only be plugged into a 4 line jack via an 8 conductor (RJ45) plug-to-dual 4 conductor (RJ14) jacks. 1 of the jacks is lines 1/2, the other is for lines 3/4. Check with the instructions that came with the modular crimp tool to learn how to use it. Modular crimp tools can be bought at Radio Shack, Home Depot, and many other places where phones and phone accessories are sold.
Ratchet Modular Crimp Tool
The Modular Crimp Tool is a professional quality ratcheted data & telephone tool. Designed for precision termination of phone and data (Category 5) cabling.
Cuts, strips & crimps flat phone and round UTP/STP cable (including 4-pair Cat 3, 5, 5e). Use on standard RJ11/12 and RJ45 WE/SS-Style Plugs.
What makes this tool better is it's fully ratcheted mechanism and it's dedicated round-wire stripper. Most low-cost tools are not ratcheted - leading to poorly terminated connections and cables that may fail in service. And most other tools were designed only to work with flat satin phone cable. The Paladin 1545 features a round wire stripper to easily remove the outer jacket from Category 5 cabling without nicking the conductors.
