Different Crimpers Offer Variety of Features
Modular Crimp Tool
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.
