Instruction Sheet for EZ-E Punchdown Tool

The EZ-E Punchdown Tool has an adjustable force thumb wheel for selecting the optimal punch down force for Insulation Displacement Contacts (IDC). Turn the thumb wheel to the desired force setting, seat wire in IDC block, listen and look for sound and light. Once sound and light are activated, the correct force has been achieved and the wire is terminated correctly.

EZ-E Punchdown Tool layout

Turn the black thumb wheel (A) to the desired force setting (B).

L (Low) = 24 lbs
M (Medium) = 34 lbs
H (High) = 44 lbs

Marks between H, M, and L are forces between these markings.

Turning the thumb wheel clockwise increases the force setting.

Turning the thumb wheel counter clockwise decreases the force setting.

After setting the force, push down on the tool to seat and cut the wire in the IDC block.

When the buzzer sounds and the red LED lights (C), the correct force has been achieved and termination is complete.

Locate "BATTERY DOOR" (D) and open by turning the small #2 screw (E) on battery door counter-clockwise. Remove #2 screw. Battery door will open. Remove 9V battery and replace. Install battery door and #2 screw. Do not over-tighten #2 screw.
