Pros Kit offers three styles of crimper frames for their die sets, but my preference is the Pros Kit Crimp Pro Crimping Frame. It offers ratcheting action for accurate and easy crimps, allows you to use the interchangeable die sets, has a crimping pressure adjustment as well as a quick release for the safety of your hands.
Many types of crimpers are able to press standard types of twisted pair cables into RJ10, RJ12, and RJ45 plugs all in a single tool! Having a single crimping tool for all these types of wire is something that everyone could utilize in their tool box. Twisted pair wire crimpers are designed to quickly crimp and cut the wires of RJ-45/11/12 compatible connectors in one easy simple operation! The straight action crimping motion ensures a uniform crimp.
I don't know about you, but after 25 years of cable installations, it certainly seemed as if my tool bag was filled with more styles of crimping tools than any other type of electronics tool. There are just so many different types of crimp connectors to deal with, that one crimper just didn't fit all of my installation needs.
Modular plugs, "F" connectors, "N" connectors, RG58, RG59, RG6, Insulated Terminals, Uninsulated Terminals are just a few of the connector types I run into almost every day in my electronics shop, and every time I thought I had it covered, another new style of connector came along forcing me to purchase another crimping tool.
You would think that after all these years of using my hands on a daily basis that my hands and fingers would remain limber. Yet, just the opposite is true, I find my hands becoming cramped when involved in applications that require repetitive crimps. That's why my choice is the Crimp Pro Crimper Frame from Pros Kit. This ratcheting style crimper frame is much easier on my hands, especially when working with the large installs.
